Invitation to be co-signatory on our paper ‘Scientists’ Warning to Humanity concerning global environment’
by William J. Ripple, Oregon State University
Twenty five years ago, in 1992, the Union of Concerned Scientists and over 1500 scientists published the famous declaration entitled “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity”. They called on humanity to curb environmental destruction, warning “all humanity that a great change in our stewardship of the earth and the life on it is required, if vast human misery is to be avoided.” Now, on the 25th anniversary of their famous call, we looked back at their warning and evaluated the human response over the last quarter century. This 25-year update will soon be published by BioScience.
