In December 2003 humanity learned with dismay that during the summer 21,000 people died in Europe as a result of excessive heat (more than 40 degrees Celsius), that the glaciers of the North and South Poles had lost three meters of their height, that this could mean an increase in the height of the seas and oceans levels, and that the surface of the depleted ozonosphere of our atmosphere had reached the size of China.
And all this was insufficient to induce the USA to agree with and sign the Kyoto Agreement for the reduction of carbon dioxide in the world. The reason given for the refusal: it would harm business, the economy.
| Robert's Golden Sayings |
|Creation is beautiful if we love it and ugly if we hate it. Beauty is often a child of our mind. We can be co-creators with God of the beauty of our planet, of Paradise Earth. |
My Testament to the UN
-A Contribution to the 50th Anniversary of the United Nations, 1995, Chapter 10
|For the first time in history we have a Utopia in operation: the UN. So let us make it work and become a success. |
* If the Utopians from the past resuscitated and saw the UN, they would exclaim: but this is it! This is my utopia!
* Most of humanity works at making this planet Utopia. And it will succeed.
If we could see the miracle of a single flower clearly, our whole life would change. --Buddha
Fact of the Day: Be The Change:
The magnititude of the world can be overwhelming. How massive is the number of impoverished people? What percentage of the overall population lives in urban areas? How vast is the threat of AIDS? It's hard to put things in perspective when the numbers are so large. The Miniature Earth gives a clear vista by reducing the global population to only 100, while keeping statistics the same. The effect enables us to see the differences on our planet more clearly, and perhaps consider how our actions can impact humanity. Where do you live in the smaller community? In the project's final words: "Appreciate what you have. And do your best for a better world." [ more ]
