Nations Won't Reach Paris Climate Goal Without Protecting Wildlife and Nature, Warns Report 2.4.2018 Truthout - All Articles
A sweeping new report emphasizes just how intertwined the challenges of climate change and loss of biodiversity truly are.

"Acting to protect and promote biodiversity is at least as important to achieving these commitments and to human well-being as is the fight against global climate change." The report comes from the efforts of more than 550 scientists in over 100 nations, corralled by an organization often dubbed "the IPCC for biodiversity." Much like the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) assesses the state of research on global warming and its impacts, the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) reviews the best-available science on biodiversity and nature's ...
