"On land, in the seas, in the sky, the devastating impact of humans on nature is laid bare in a compelling UN report.
"One million animal and plant species are now threatened with extinction.
"Nature everywhere is declining at a speed never previously seen and our need for ever more food and energy are the main drivers.
"These trends can be halted, the study says, but it will take "transformative change" in every aspect of how humans interact with nature.
. . . . .
"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."
