Abstract

As a consequence for humankind producing excessive amounts of greenhouse gases, discharging thousands of hazardous chemicals and displacing large numbers of species from their habitat, future generations will inherit a planet with a rapidly changing climate and, consequentially, fewer natural resources. If no effort is made to reduce greenhouse gases and protect the planet, even survival may prove difficult for humankind.
