All the current environmental indicators for Earth are predicting a very bleak future. The human populace is expanding at a rapid pace, climate changes are growing more and more severe with the increasing effects of global warming and different kinds of catastrophes are striking different regions. Now, a group of scientists claim that Earth of on the verge of such biological changes which will be severely harmful as well as irreversible.


These scientists hold that our actions, when it comes to environment and population, have such a huge impact that they may eventually alter the very state of this Earth and attract a catastrophic transition.

According to a research paper published by these scientists in ‘Nature’, “Humans are now forcing another such transition, with the potential to transform Earth rapidly and irreversibly into a state unknown in human experience.”

They go on to predict a ‘tipping point’ for the planet, the moment after which the planet could no longer take the abysmal affects of our environment-related decisions and would be permanently damaged, “The net effects of what we’re causing could actually be equivalent to an asteroid striking the Earth in a worst-case scenario.I don’t want to sound like Armageddon. I think the point to be made is that if we just ignore all the warning signs of how we’re changing the Earth, the scenario of losses of biodiversity — 75% or more — is not an outlandish scenario at all.”

Indeed, the words seem to be carry weight since all global indicators are not showing any positive indications of environment-friendly outputs. The global population is due to reach a whopping 9.3 billion by 2050, something which will seriously cause problems. The average temperature of Earth will also rise.

To counter a rather bleak and dark future, mankind must overcome population growth, the paper recommends, make energy use more efficient and take on other environment-friendly practices. Naturally, not many who are making big money out of exploiting the environment want to heed this.
