UN Report “Making peace with nature”
The United Nations released a report Thursday on the health of the planet that proposes a radical shift in the way mankind thinks about it.
The report, “Making Peace with Nature” collates the latest science on climate change and that humans must now learn to value the fundamental “natural capital” of geology, soil, air and water
There are three interlinked environmental crises: climate disruption, biodiversity loss and pollution that threaten our viability as a species.
The world is far from meeting its agreed objectives to protect the planet. Species and ecosystems are vanishing faster than ever, despite long-standing global commitments to protect them. While the ozone layer is slowly being restored, mankind has fallen off track to limit global warming as envisioned in the landmark Paris Agreement, the report says.
