UH scientists sign second warning notice to humanity

From UH News November 27, 2017

Fifty scientists from the University of Hawaiʻi are among the more than 15,000 scientists who signed the World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice

The warning comes on the 25th anniversary of the first warning document.

In 1992 scientists wrote that humanity was pushing Earth’s ecosystems too far and that fundamental changes were needed “if vast human misery is to be avoided.”

(Actually, life is better now than it ever has been.  And the last 25 years have been very prosperous for humanity.  But lets not let reality get in the way of eco-socialism.)

Among other issues, scientists cited depletion of marine life, deforestation, climate change and population growth.

In this year’s follow-up notice scientists say that humanity, for the most part, has failed to address critical issues, particularly climate change.

“What most people don’t understand is that environmental threats are worsening at a faster and faster pace,” said Mark Hixon, UH Mānoa professor and Hsiao Endowed Chair in Marine Biology. “If we don’t act decisively and soon, it will be too late for our grandchildren,” Hixon said.

(He said that 25 years ago, too.  LOL!)

The signees

All of the UH signees are with UH Mānoa, unless otherwise noted.

Two scientists who also signed the 1992 warning are noted with an asterisk.
