Time Running Out to Save Planet Earth: 15000 Scientists Warn

Share

It is actually an update of a letter sent out by a group of scientists titled "World Scientists' Warning to Humanity" in 1992, in which 1,700 scientists, including most scientific Nobel laureates alive at the time, stated what they considered the biggest threats to the planet and, by extension, to us.

This is the second warning which has been issued by the world's leading scientists on this subject, by and large, the first was virtually ignored. The fact that we have managed to solve the ozone crisis by acting decisively and collectively goes to show that these kinds of agreements and global action are within reach.

To mark the letter's 25th anniversary, researchers have furnished a stimulating follow up.

Your government is probably manipulating you on social media
And in Turkey, around 6,000 are believed to be employed by the government to fight political opponents on social media sites. There are three main criteria of evaluation: obstacles to access; limits on content and violations of user rights.

The viewpoint article, World Scientists' Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice, was signed by more than 15,000 scientists in 184 countries. They write that humanity has been unsuccessful to assemble adequate development in predominantly in generally deciphering in predicting environmental provocation and distressingly majority are deteriorating. Those chemicals were once used in refrigerators, air conditioners, and elsewhere, but we discovered they could trigger reactions in the atmosphere that broke down the ozone.

"Some people might be tempted to dismiss this evidence and think we are just being alarmist", says William Ripple, lead author of the report and professor in the College of Forestry at Oregon State University. As WaPo notes, since the original piece, global average temperatures have continued to rise-half a degree Celsius since 1992, which has a profound impact on the ecosystem.

They call on people to pressure their representatives into action, such as to prevent further contributions to climate change, and don't shy away from the uncomfortable stuff, like asking for people to stop making so many babies.

Among the bleakness, there's one thing humanity appears to have done right, and that is the reduction of ozone-depleting emissions.

The authors offer 13 suggestions for reining in our impact on the planet, including establishing nature reserves, reducing food waste, developing green technologies and establishing economic incentives to shift patterns of consumption.
"Scientists are in the business of analysing data and looking at the long-term consequences". They are acknowledging the obvious signs that we are heading down an unsustainable path.

Ripple and his colleagues have formed a new independent organisation, the Alliance of World Scientists, to be a collective voice on environmental sustainability and human well-being. "We are hoping that our paper will ignite a widespread public debate about the global environment and climate".
