Ripple found: 

A decline in freshwater availability.Unsustainable marine fisheries.Ocean dead zones.Forest losses.Dwindling biodiversity.Climate change.Population growth.

There was one positive outcome, however: a rapid decline in ozone depletion.

"The trends are alarming, and they speak for themselves," Ripple said, though he notes the improvement in the ozone hole illustrates that humanity can make change when needed.
