The Scientists' Warning Movement is Growing

February 28, 2019



It's been more than a year since the publication of the Scientist's Warning to Humanity generated worldwide buzz when thousands of scientists representing every country on the planet voiced their support for Bill Ripple's and his co-authors' paper.


And a whole lot has happened since then, much of it thanks to your support.


Bill Ripple has co-authored more than twenty additional papers, many of them themed by the Scientist's Warning. He's given speeches to sold-out crowds, and we launched production the film version of his presentation through this campaign.


We're now heading into the next phase of production, with scheduled filming in Bangladesh to cover freshwater resource issues, more coverage of talks Dr. Ripple is giving around the Northwest, plus researching the hundreds of project suggestions shared by contributors like you.


None of this would be happening without your support. We'll soon be wrapping up this phase of the fundraising campaign, so thank you for believing in this project and supporting Dr. Ripple's efforts to inform the world about the most vital issues we face as a species.


We'll keep you posted throughout the filmmaking process.


Kind regards,

David Baker
