Sci­en­tists’ warn­ing

Manchester Evening News - - NATIONAL -

A PROPHETIC “Warn­ing to Hu­man­ity” giv­ing no­tice of per­ils fac­ing the Earth has been is­sued by more than 15,000 sci­en­tists from around the world.

The mes­sage, posted on­line, up­dates an orig­i­nal Warn­ing from the Union of Con­cerned Sci­en­tists in 1992. Run­away con­sump­tion of pre­cious re­sources by an ex­plod­ing pop­u­la­tion re­mains the big­gest dan­ger fac­ing hu­mankind, say the sci­en­tists. They urge the me­dia to put pres­sure on gov­ern­ments to re­verse the trend.
