Here we offer you a ‘resilience’ news feed, reporting on both natural and human adaptation to the consequences already upon us, and those that are anticipated in the near future.. We also offer you two other pages of news articles gathered from around the world. These are called Scientists Warning, and Impacts News. The first 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 provides news of the impacts of our thoughtless treatment of the Earth and how our willful and negligent behavior is coming back to haunt us. The resilience and impacts 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 interesting through social media and email as well. It’s part of the ‘wake-up call’ for which we are all responsible.
