Warning: Multiple Overlapping Crises Could Trigger ‘Global Systemic Collapse’

Overlapping environmental crises could tip the planet into “global systemic collapse,” warned more than 200 top scientists.

Extreme weather events, the decline of life-sustaining ecosystems, food security and dwindling stores of fresh water. All of this poses a monumental challenge to humanity in the 21st century.

Current environmental crises have the potential to impact and amplify one another in ways that might cascade to create global systemic collapse.

This is the terrifying warning given by more than 200 top scientists and the challenge that faces humanity in the next years or decades.

Some scientists have begun to look at the likelihood and impacts of cascading environmental crises.

Recent research has shown, for example, that some parts of the world may soon be coping with up to six extreme weather events at once, ranging from heat waves and wildfires to diluvian rains and deadly storm surges.

Human society will be faced with the devastating combined impacts of multiple interacting climate hazards,” said Erik Franklin. “They are happening now and will continue to get worse.

Scientists agree that Earth is at the outset of a mass extinction event – only the 6th in half-a-billion years – which could drive a million species, or one-in-eight, into oblivion over the coming decades or centuries. [Science Alert]

    This is new quake that my predictions came through. More quakes under way till March 3-2020 ?

  2. Vancouver Canada grouse mountain we see Jet con trails and chem-trails are totally different. Chem trails stay for longer times and could be spraying us all with Corona Virus?

  3. Most climate issues are caused by geoengineering. When will scientists admit the daily spraying and atmospheric manipulation going on above their heads? Wake up, look up, stand up
