AMICI endorses the Scientists’ warning to humanity: microorganisms and climate change!

The Consensus Statement 'Scientists’ warning to humanity: microorganisms and climate change' emphasizes that microorganisms are so critical to achieving an environmentally sustainable future that ignoring them risks the fate of Humanity. It aims to raise awareness of the microbial world and make a call to action for microbiologists to become increasingly engaged in, and microbial research to become increasingly infused into, the frameworks for addressing climate change. We must learn not just how microorganisms affect climate change (including production and consumption of greenhouse gases) but also how they will be affected by climate change and other human activities.
