Earth Summit ’92 – Have we done anything since?

I share with you a very moving speech delivered over 16 years back during the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development in Rio de Janeiro aka the Earth Summit, which also produced the Rio Declaration. A 13 year young girl Severn Suzuki from Canada addresses the gathering with some heart touching words.

A well written speech and I feel the impact was greater since it was delivered by a young girl talking about her future. The words were true then, and remain ever so true even today.

In the 16 years since, have we done anything different to change our world !!! Take a moment to think about it, is the world a better place for our children and our children’s children? I fear to say NOT, in fact it may at best be worse.

    I wish America changes its policies and should have sympathy with this poor World. Earth can only be saved with change in attitude of America.
