Johan Rockström: The 3-6-9 reality

Rockstrom 3-6-9 realityThis morning, I mentioned Stockholm Resilience Center executive director Johan Rockström’s video about the newly proposed Sustainable Development Goals.

It’s also worth noting what he calls “the 3-6-9 reality.”

We are moving to a world of 3°C warming above pre-industrial levels.

We are living through the 6th mass extinction of species, undermining genetic diversity and ecosystem services, which are fundamental to food production and fresh water supply.

And we are committed to a world of 9 billion people by 2050.
