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