Underestimating Challenges for Avoiding a Ghastly Future: Part 1 of 2 // Mar 11, 2021
Recently a peer reviewed scientific paper titled “Underestimating the Challenges of Avoiding a Ghastly Future” was published in the journal “Frontiers in Conservation. Science”.
It used to be extremely unusual for scientific papers to have such dire titles, but not anymore.
I chat about some of the key findings in this paper. I review some of the abundant evidence that future environmental conditions will be far more dangerous than many people and organizations currently understand. Political and economic systems and leadership do not seem prepared or even capable of action at any scale large enough to even begin to tackle the problem. We need all scientists to speak out candidly and accurately to convey the enormous scope of our dire situation.
I chat about Biodiversity Loss, the Sixth Mass Extinction, Ecological Overshoot (Population Size and Overconsumption), failed international goals and future prospects, climate disruption, political impotence, and how we collectively need to change the rules of the game
