Biodiversity, climate change and you

EEA Signals 2010 tells six stories about people and the environmental issues they live with today.  These ‘eyewitnesses’ invite you on a journey to both familiar and distant places looking again at the foundations of life on earth — water, soil and air. Although their observations are personal and local, their plight is common and global.These are not simply anecdotes. The wisdom of ordinary people, such as hunters, farmers, hill walkers and sports enthusiasts, offer an often untapped resource of information to complement our satellite images and research. These people also speak in plain language. They are easy to listen to.“We rely on the richness of life on this planet for our food, shelter and such basic needs as clean air. We are a part of this diversity and cannot live without it. In Signals ordinary people observe how changes to their environment affect not only animal and plant life, but also their livelihood and lifestyle” said Prof. Jacqueline McGlade, Executive Director of EEA.Biodiversity and Climate Change are central themes and the stories will be relevant throughout 2010 –United Nations International Year of Biodiversity.
