Scientists' Warning to Humanity: a Second Notice

The article has been endorsed by over 15,000 scientists from around the world, including from Namibia. This is the largest number of scientists from more countries (184) to ever come out in support of a published paper. The paper warns that humans are pushing the planet to its limits and that very urgent action is overdue. This short paper should be compulsory reading for everyone – and perhaps particularly for politicians, educators and other decision-makers in the public and private sectors. To this end, the NCE would like to make the information in this short paper more accessible, (perhaps a brochure and/or poster?) and in an easier way (perhaps a short video?). We will also explore options via social media.

If any NCE Member would like to work with us to disseminate this info in more accessible ways, please contact us.
