David Bellamy

Environmental campaigner and botanist. Brought up in London. Built up a media career as a protector of the environment. Initially supported the campaign to raise awareness of man-made climate change but he changed his mind in 2004, calling the theory "poppycock". Since then his media career largely faded away.

He died, aged 86 years, on 11 December 2019 in County Durham.
