Jennifer Aniston’s record for the quickest time to a million followers on Instagram has been beaten by David Attenborough. After joining the site it only took 4 hours and 44 minutes to reach 1 million followers.
It’s quite exciting to see such an elderly documentary maker reaching out to people in a new way. David Attenborough is one of the most trusted people in the world, and while his documentaries are often revoiced for the American audience, when he says something it has a great deal of weight.
These sorts of moves can make a significant difference. If significant numbers of young Americans listen to this and understand, they could potentially swing the upcoming election.
This in turn would likely mean that America had a president who believe scientists are telling the truth, rather than assuming that he knew more than all climate scientists in the world.
