The clock ticks….and inaction endangers us all

25 11 2006

Is it possible that these words were penned almost fifteen years ago (1992) by 1575 scientists and over half of all living nobel laureates in the field of science?

“Human beings and the natural world are on a collision course. Human activities inflict harsh and often irreversible damage to the environment and on critical resources. If not checked, many of our current practices put at serious risk the future that we wish for human society and the plant and animal kingdoms, and may so alter the living world that it will be unable to sustain life in the manner that we know. Fundamental changes are urgent if we are to avoid the collision our present course will bring about”

I think we’ve got a little catching up to do.
