Attenborough claims children are disconnected from Nature

Being connected to Nature is far more important than people realise. Studies have shown, for example, that a child is far less likely to develop myopia the more he spends outdoors every day. Having  green plants(or even just the colour green, to a lesser extent) in one's home or office has also been shown to increase concentration in humans. I suspect most of us humans are facing a future similiar to E M Forbes "The Machine Stops", otherwise.
“When a population becomes distracted by trivia, when cultural life is redefined as a perpetual round of entertainments, when serious public conversation becomes a form of baby-talk, when, in short, a people become an audience and their public business a vaudeville act, then a nation finds itself at risk; a culture-death is a clear possibility.” — Professor Neil Postman, Amusing Ourselves to Death: Discourse in the Age of Show Business
