——– Forwarded Message ——-

Dear Scientist,

Twenty five years ago, in 1992, the Union of Concerned Scientists and
more than 1500 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.

To see the in press article “World scientists’ warning to humanity: a
second notice” and add your name as a co-signatory, click:

This short article is only 1,000 words long and can be read in 6
minutes. If you are a scientist, we invite you to endorse this article
by adding your name to the co-signatory list. 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. We
invite all types of scientists to sign (e.g. ecologists, economists,
social scientists, medicine, etc.) including graduate students in the
sciences.

Please forward this email to any other scientists in your contact list
that may also be interested in signing. For example, 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 and to humanity. As
of today, September 1, 2017, the article has been signed by nearly 7,000
scientists from 135 countries.

Thank you, Bill
