Scientists Issue Dire Warning to HumanityNovember 15, 2017 |
by Swapna Krishna
Back in 1992, a group of scientists from around the world told us in no uncertain terms that we were ruining the planet Earth. Because of human actions such as deforestation, pollution and ozone depletion, we were on a dire course that would lead to a planet unable to support life. As you can imagine, things haven’t improved much. This week, over 15,000 scientists from 184 countries joined together to issue a second notice for the 25th anniversary of their original warning. Their message? Things have gotten much, much worse, and soon it will be too late to do anything about it.
