Sign the "Warning to Humanity" article

Invitation to be co-signatory on article "World Scientists' Warning to Humanity: A Second Notice"
in BioScience Magazine

Dear Scientist,

Twenty five years ago, in 1992, the Union of Concerned Scientists and more than 1,500 scientists published the famous declaration entitled “World Scientists’ Warning to Humanity”. They called on humanity to curb environmental destruction, warning “all humanity that a great change in our stewardship of the earth and the life on it is required, if vast human misery is to be avoided.” Now, on the 25th anniversary of their famous call, we looked back at their warning and evaluated the human response over the last quarter century. This 25-year update will soon be published by BioScience.

In doing so, when the article is published by BioScience, you will be included in the full list of co-signatories in the article’s online supplemental material.

Please forward this email to any other scientists in your contact list that may also be interested in signing. For example, if you are a IPCC climate scientist, you could simply forward this email to your working group. If you use Twitter, consider inviting your colleagues to add their signatures by including #ScientistsWarningToHumanity in a tweet.

With your help, by forwarding this email to your scientist contacts, we will have many more scientists as co-signatories to present to world leaders. The deadline for signing is September 19, 2017. Thanks for helping get this important message to world leaders. As of today, August 18, 2017, the article has been signed by about 5,400 scientists from 127 countries.
