Biodiversity year ended on high note

To the UNEP : ” A new international body aimed at catalyzing a global response to the loss of biodiversity and world’s economically-important forests, coral reefs and other ecosystems was born yesterday. “

Dubbed the “IPCC for Nature”, the new Intergovernmental Platform on Biodiversity and Ecosystem Services (IPBES) will have a tough job at protecting endangered species and stopping what more and more call the anthropocene.

I just hope this new organization will face less opposition than the IPCC. For further details on this event please read the press release here.

For those interested in the anthropocene, the European Parliament website have an interesting interview with Professor Paul Crutzen on this topic.


Edouard is a sustainability and energy professional committed to bringing our societies to a carbon neutral future. He has been writing on related topics on this very blog since 2007.
