There’s a new statement out, about the damage we’re causing to our life support systems — climate being perhaps the most important one but by no means the only one. 520 scientists have signed it so far, and they’re seeking citizen signatures as well.
Earth is rapidly approaching a tipping point. Human impacts are causing alarming levels of harm to our planet. As scientists who study the interaction of people with the rest of the biosphere using a wide range of approaches, we agree that the evidence that humans are damaging their ecological life-support systems is overwhelming.
We further agree that, based on the best scientific information available, human quality of life will suffer substantial degradation by the year 2050 if we continue on our current path.
