Coronavirus

Nature is sending us a message with the coronavirus pandemic and the ongoing climate crisis, according to the UNā€™s environment chief, Inger Andersen.

Andersen said humanity was placing too many pressures on the natural world with damaging consequences, and warned that failing to take care of the planet meant not taking care of ourselves.

Leading scientists also said the Covid-19 outbreak was a ā€œclear warning shotā€, given that far more deadly diseases existed in wildlife, and that todayā€™s civilisation was ā€œplaying with fireā€. They said it was almost always human behaviour that caused diseases to spill over into humans.
