John Cleese warns this planet could be NO MORE and become 'biological desert'

From the Express - MONTY PYTHON legend John Cleese has created a 21st Century version of the legendary Dead Parrot Sketch to warn about the threat to the planet’s endangered creatures.

"The comedy genius admits there is nothing funny about his new Dead Planet Sketch and its warnings about the threats to lions, elephants and rhinos.

He warned: “Our great planet is eating itself and if we don’t act now and start thinking about the future, this Earth will become a biological desert within the lifetimes of our children.

Cleese has sent a stark video warning to delegates meeting at the United Nations' summit on wildlife trade as it focusses on lions, elephants and rhinos and the dire threats they face.

In the famous Dead Parrot Sketch, the joke is on a so-called Norweigan Blue, a purely fictitious species, but in his special appeal to delegates attending the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species, the creatures facing oblivion are all too real."
