The article was written by an worldwide team led by William Ripple, distinguished professor in the College of Forestry at Oregon State University. "They are acknowledging the obvious signs that we are heading down an unsustainable path". "We are hoping that our paper will ignite a widespread public debate about the global environment and climate".
