Top Scientists Warn Of ‘Ghastly Future Of Mass Extinction’ And Climate Disruption (The Guardian)
Science headlines having to deal with mass extinction seem to be commonplace these days. However, sometimes there is a report that holds too much truth to be overlooked. 17 experts including the author of The Population Bomb, Stanford University Professor Paul Ehrlich, connected from all over the world to reference a huge problem. They claim that the planet is in a worse state than even scientists previously understood.
This all comes down to a “ghastly future of mass extinction, declining health and climate-disruption upheavals that threaten human survival because of ignorance and inaction” according to their findings. They even claim that people have not been grasping the urgency of the planet’s biodiversity nor the climate crisis. They went on to say that “the scale of the threats to the biosphere and all its lifeforms – including humanity – is in fact so great that it is difficult to grasp for even well-informed experts.”
