Sobering photos show the impact man is having on Earth
Friday, April 17, 2015, 12:16 PM - Global Population Speak Out is a non-profit initiative that draws attention to human population growth and the impact it is having on the environment, with a view towards creating sustainable practices.
"There's still hope," the organization says on its website.
"Although the problems are vast, solutions exist. To create change, it takes people speaking out, demanding the solutions be implemented. Together, we can create change -- and save the world."
To outline their point, the organization has put together a book called Global Population Speak Out, comprised of several photos outlining man's impact on the environment.
The photos confront a number of human activities that are putting local ecosystems at risk -- like overhunting, industrial practices and littering.
The book is coupled with quotes from writers and scientists aimed toward raising awareness about our fragile planet.
Global Population Speak Out can be viewed online for free, while physical copies can be purchased online.
