The planet earth is facing a “climate emergency”, a group of more than 11,000 scientists, explained in a statement on Tuesday.

Four decades after scientists from over 50 countries, predicted that global warming would be a major challenge, a much larger group of experts is calling for new measures to tackle what they describe as a climate crisis.

“The greenhouse-gas emissions still increasing rapidly, with more and more of the harmful effects on the environment of the Earth. A dramatic increase in the scale of the efforts to save the biosphere, it is necessary, in order to avoid the immense suffering in the climate crisis,” they write in the message, published in the journal BioScience.

According to the scientists, that the climate crisis is linked to the excessive consumption of the rich way of life,” adding that some of the most well-off countries responsible for historical emissions of greenhouse gases and has the largest per capita emissions right now.

The essay provides more than a dozen graphs and charts that are in sharp detail, a wide range of changes in human activity on a global scale, from 1979 to the present, including a significant increase in the emissions of air transport, the world’s GDP, energy consumption, human population, and livestock and tree cover, the loss.

The scientists call for a number of far-reaching changes in policy, including a major shift toward energy efficiency and a drastic reduction in certain pollutants, and the conservation of endangered and threatened natural land-and seascapes, and a reduction in waste and a carbon-free economy.”

As a policy, the idea is that it is likely to stir up controversy: control of the population. The world’s population needs to be stabilized — and in the process, ideally, will gradually be reduced,” the scientists write.

Still, the scientists end on a more upbeat note, pointing to the recent actions of the goverments, and activists.

“We are encouraged by the recent wave of concern,” the letter said. “The authorities are to the climate and the need of explanations. In school children are evident. Ecocide legal proceedings in the court of law. Grassroots citizen movements demanding change, and in a lot of countries, states, provinces, cities, and companies are responding.”
