Here we offer you news of the impacts of our thoughtless treatment of the Earth and how it is coming back to threaten our own well-being. We also offer you two other pages of news articles gathered from around the world. These are called Scientists Warning, and Resilience News. The first one offers news articles showing how the World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity is being reported and repeated around the world, as well as related news stories we find, while the second ‘resilience’ news feed reports on both natural and human adaptations to the consequences already upon us, and those that are anticipated in the near future. The impacts and resilience news feeds are generously contributed by the Environmental Health News (ehn.org) via their website and news accumulator The Daily Climate (dailyclimate.org). Please share the articles you find most interesting through social media and email as well. It’s part of the ‘wake-up call’ for which we are all responsible.
