Earth’s environment getting worse according to WWF

Twenty years after the Rio Earth summit, the environment of the planet is getting worse not better, according to a new report by WWF.

Swelling population, mass migration to cities, increasing energy use and soaring carbon dioxide emissions mean humanity is putting a greater squeeze on the planet’s resources then ever before.

Particularly hard hit is the diversity of animals and plants, upon which many natural resources such as clean water are based

“The Rio+20 conference next month is an opportunity for the world to get serious about the need for development to become sustainable. Our report indicates that we haven’t yet done that since the last Rio summit,” said David Nussbaum, WWF-UK chief executive.
