Over 15,000 Scientists Just Issued a "Second Notice" to Humanity. Can We Listen Now? 14.11.2017 Truthout - All Articles
Yikes. Over 15,000 scientists hailing from more than 180 countries just issued a dire  warning  to humanity: "Time is running out" to stop business as usual, as threats from rising greenhouse gases to biodiversity loss are pushing the biosphere to the brink. The new warning was published Monday in the international journal  BioScience , and marks an update to the "World Scientists' Warning to Humanity" issued by nearly 1,700 leading scientists 25 years ago. The 1992 plea, which said Earth was on track to be "irretrievably mutilated" baring "fundamental change," however, was largely unheeded. "Some people might be tempted to dismiss this evidence and think we are just being alarmist," said William Ripple, distinguished professor in the College of Forestry at Oregon State University, and lead author of the new warning.
