Our Dying Planet

Problem

A new Yale University Environmental Performance Index ranks 180 countries on how they protect ecosystems and human health.

Humans are making a mess of this planet and more governments are taking notice and last year's Climate Change Conference in Paris resulted in a landmark 195 nations committing to lowering planet-warming greenhouse gas emissions. Basically, it will take serious efforts to save the world.
