Salvation of the Earth, scientists launch an ultimatum

Scientists issue an ultimatum, Earth’s resources on edge, and politics don’t seem worried about the dire future scenario.

Recently the scientific platform Frontiers he took up the cry of alarm launched by scientists, an ultimatum on the state of health of the Earth. Despite repeated warnings and to remedy the global climate crisis, it seems that little has been done about it.

Between environmental issues more urgent to face, the first concerns a real threat capable of affecting the survival of the biosphere and of man himself. Scientists emphasize little or no intervention and interest on the part of world leaders, followed by a totally lacking policy towards sustainable alternatives.

L’impact of man the environment is proving to be terrible, humanity is affecting the preservation of biodiversity and the survival of the same earth that is no longer able to sustain these rhythms. Although alternative solutions have been advanced e sustainable the planet seems to be heading towards the sixth mass extinction, with a loss of about 75% of all species present.

The human presence has doubled since 1970 and this has increased the consumption of global resources, with relative impairment of the natural ecosystems. An example is the biomass produced by intensive farming equal to 59%, followed by human biomass or 36%, an enormous compared to only 5% produced by wild animals.

Earth, dramatic scenarios for the future

The future seems an unknown with fatal contours, none of the countries and world policies seem to want to take into consideration the sustainable strategies advanced by scientists. Proposals within everyone’s reach, but which do not seem to arouse the interest of anyone, indeed humanity seems committed to consuming the resources of the Planet while producing an exorbitant quantity of non-recyclable waste with related pollution. It is no coincidence that plastics are devastating the oceans, ending up compromising the survival of its inhabitants or the beauty of pristine spaces.

With obvious repercussions on the health of man himself, as the same shows Coronavirus long feared as the probable result of a series of linked factors. For example, rising global temperatures, one continues deforestation and the killing of local fauna, breeding and intensive agriculture, the trade of wild animals as food: a mix that has facilitated the transmission of pathogens.

Scientists are troubled by theinactivity of politics which does not seem to understand the worsening of future existential conditions. A disinterest favored by the rise of populist leaders such as in Brazil and in the last four years in the US with Donald Trump, which have allowed an increase in the economic gap and in the face of policies focused on recovering energies such as oil.

For this reason, the signature of the new president was received with interest Joe Biden for the re-entry of the United States into the Paris Agreement, a small step towards more sustainable and emulable choices.
