The National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine

More than 100 leading scientists including many Nobel Prize winners issued a statement following two days of scientific deliberations at the first Nobel Prize Summit, 26-28 April 2021.

Excerpts from the statement:

Global heating and habitat loss amount to nothing less than a vast and
uncontrolled experiment on Earth’s life-support system.

Time is running out to prevent irreversible changes.

The remaining carbon budget for a 67% probability of not exceeding 1.5°C global
warming will be exhausted before 2030. 

Global sustainability offers the only viable path to human safety, equity,
health, and progress.

Humanity is waking up late to the challenges and opportunities of active
planetary stewardship. But we *are* waking up.
