Contaminants which run off from farms and cities, produce dead-zones downstream, where few things can live. It's feared this year's dead zone in the Gulf of Mexico will be the biggest yet. Image by NOAA.

TAKE ACTION to Protest Failed Global Ecological Leadership
major nations dawdle as Earth burns. Their failed leadership obstructs
international efforts to protect our one collapsing biosphere while
sustainably meeting all of humanity’s basic needs… Based upon ecological
science, we know what must be done to sustain Earth’s life and human
advancement: protect and restore primary forest and other intact
ecosystems, immediately begin reducing emissions to avoid abrupt climate
change based upon common but differentiated responsibilities, reduce
inequitable consumption and population growth, and promote fairness in
sharing of Earth’s dwindling abundance amongst all nations and their
peoples… What could possibly be more important than ensuring Earth
remains habitable, and all humanity’s basic needs are met? Ecological
Internet’s Earth Action Network must bear witness to such deadly and
dangerous environmental intransigence, holding failed leadership
accountable for ecocide.
