11,000 scientists from around the world unite to declare global climate emergency

More than 11,000 scientists from 153 countries have come together to declare a climate emergency and create a six-step plan to help humanity mitigate the effects of man-made global warming.

The declaration not only warns of the dangers of climate change but outlines six areas humanity should immediately act on if they want to mitigate the impacts of global warming. The areas include energy, short-lived pollutants, nature, food, economy, and population.
