Counting on … day 400

7th December 2022

Today the Biodiversity COP15 starts in Montreal. “The Earth is experiencing the sixth mass extinction, according to scientists, which threatens the foundations of human civilisation. How we farm, pollute, drive, heat our homes and consume is beyond what our planet can sustainably provide and at Cop15 governments are tasked with plotting a path to living within planetary boundaries.” https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2022/dec/05/making-sense-of-cop15-what-to-look-out-for-in-montreal?CMP=Share_iOSApp_Other

The issues of biodiversity loss and climate change are interlinked and neither can be addressed in  isolation from the other.
