Governor Brown and the scientists released the call to action at the fourth annual Water, Energy and Smart Technology Summit and Showcase at NASA Ames Research Center. In a release from the Governor's Office, it outlined five key threats and some solutions:
Climate change - Forecasts show that Earth will be hotter than the human species has ever experienced by the year 2070.
Extinctions - At the current rate of species extinction, the world will see the loss of 75 percent of vertebrate species within as little as three centuries.
Loss of ecosystems - As of 2012, more than 40 percent of Earth's ice-free lands have been changed by human activity, causing species extinction and other impacts to Earth's biodiversity.
Pollution - Increasing levels of toxic substances in the environment put over 100 million people at direct risk of health problems.
Population growth and consumption - Human population growth contributes to global environmental disruption by adding greenhouse gases and toxic pollutants to the environment and altering ecosystems.[from the article]
