Global warming and the related risks - such as the melting glaciers, sea levels rise,
and the increasing rate of extreme weather events - is probably the greatest challenge
of our time. In addition to environmental risks, global warming also has human
rights implications, such as new conflicts and mass migrations.
Our environment is strongly at risk due to human intervention. Through the disproportionate use of fossil fuels, deforestation, and intensive livestock breeding - which have all increased the production of greenhouse gases - human intervention has disrupted the climate balance. Such changes will increase dramatically without timely intervention. Moreover, they have made many areas of our planet inhospitable, encouraging the emergence of conflicts over water, forced migration, and exacerbating pre-existing tensions, especially in countries with already precarious economic and social balances.
