Earth losing animals, plants and clean water at superior rate, four new United Nations scientific report revealed the disclosure. The new report gives the most inclusive and localized look at the state of biodiversity.
Scientists meeting in Colombia issued four new papers on Friday showing assessment of animal and plants are doing in the Europe and Central Asia; Americas; the Asia-Pacific area; Africa. The report included from a hundred countries’ 550 experts’ result of three years of hard work and research. Their analysis showed how well the biodiversity and ecosystem are doing in the Earth’s regions apart from the poles and open oceans.
Study team chairman Robert Watson, the prominent British and U.S. scientist said that as we rely on biodiversity for clean water, food, and public health it is important to keep earth livable for humans.
Various factors such as air, habitat sir, water, stress, and land pollution, invasive species, climate change, and unsustainable use of natural resources are causing biodiversity to degrade at an alarming rate.
Scientists even talked about this week’s news of the last male northern white rhino in Africa’s death. They pointed serious reduction in the numbers of tigers, pangolins, and elephants.
Watson said in an interview, “This is undermining well-being across the planet, threatening us long-term on food and water.”
Watson also warned that the worsening man-made climate change and warming will soon negatively affect biodiversity.
“We keep making choices to borrow from the future to live well today,” said chief government scientist for fisheries and oceans of Canada, who co-chaired the Americas report, Jake Rice.
