Earth's ecosystems, upon which all life depends, are in a severe state of degradation.
Caring for lands and waters must become the new bottom line not only for communities and countries but also for businesses and corporations. Investing in the protection and restoration of nature and in equitable outcomes is the most important thing we can do to secure our future. The ten paths outlined here will help us to become responsible and loving caretakers of Earth and each other.
Endocrine disruption is a potential global problem observed not only in heavily polluted areas but also in those considered “pristine”. There is particular concern about the exposures of wildlife to mixtures of biologically active chemicals, which, combined with other stressors, may play an even greater role in reproductive disorders.
This book chapter advances SDGs 3, 13, and 15 by explaining how particulate matter in our atmosphere can have a range of negative effects on the body when inhaled, emphasising the need to assess and improve air quality.
