    • Science

For four years, male sea turtles have been declining in Florida, and a study in Australia confirmed similar findings with 99% of the hatchlings born female, with both linked to rising temperatures. Earlier this year, we breached the planetary limit for hazardous chemicals. There are over 350,000 human-made chemicals on the market with numbers expected to triple by 2050. This cocktail of facts got us thinking about the impacts of synthetic chemicals and rising global temperatures on the reproductive health of human and non-human species, as well as the possible impact of reproductive ability? Are we gonna run low on babies? Join us as we discuss.
