We are not going to be able to operate our Spaceship Earth successfully nor for much longer unless we see it as a whole spaceship and our fate as common. It has to be everybody or nobody.

    Where is the line we draw in setting out the boundaries for being responsible for others? Is it simply family or close friends? Do we stop at the frontiers of our own country? Does our conscience, our sense of right or wrong, take us as far as the crowded camps of northern Uganda…

    We should preserve every scrap of biodiversity as priceless while we learn to use it and come to understand what it means to humanity.

    We all know the science judging from the evidence presented over the past few years and days, we know the problem is growing worse…The world is watching us. The next generation is counting on us.

    We must not fail. Together, we face two crises: climate change and the global economy. But these crises present us with a great opportunity—an opportunity to address both challenges simultaneously.

    Managing the global financial crisis requires massive global stimulus. A big part of that spending should be an investment—an investment in a green future. An investment that fights climate change, creates millions of green jobs and spurs green growth. We need a Green New Deal.
