Margaret Atwood: Booker Prize will be irrelevant if we don't save the planet

Booker Prize-winner Margaret Atwood has said literary awards will be irrelevant unless action is taken over the environment.

The Canadian author was jointly awarded the prestigious prize for The Testaments, and wore the badge of Extinction Rebellion as she accepted the honour.

Showing solidarity in turn by wearing the protest group's hourglass symbol, the veteran author said environmental crises will affect lives within a generation and has supported international calls for action.

She added that her own most recent literary honour - her second Booker Prize following a win for The Blind Assassin in 2000 - will be an irrelevance in a world riven by environmental problems.
