"On land, in the seas, in the sky, the devastating impact of humans on nature is laid bare in a compelling UN report.

"Nature everywhere is declining at a speed never previously seen and our need for ever more food and energy are the main drivers.

. . . . .
"Three years in the making, this global assessment of nature draws on 15,000 reference materials, and has been compiled by the Intergovernmental Science-Policy Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES). It runs to 1,800 pages."
