Letter to leaders
Most leaders today think in terms of what advantages or benefits any actions on a political, social, economic, business or even religious level will have for the group they belong to (be it a country, an association or other interest group).
It is time to have leaders who think differently and who understand that being selfish and greedy is in the end detrimental to themselves as well.
Charter OCEANS FOR ALL
A new battle is underway to wave the rules or to gain control over vast areas of our oceans and poles. Will the battle ever stop?
Yes it will, when there is nobody left to battle with. Yes, when Nature is completely exhausted. Yes, when most of our leaders continue to think in the way they do. Selfishly and short-
To stop the battle soon and to see to it that everyone is satisfied and living a decent life, economics and politics and even part of religious thought have to change. From mainly money-
Instruments that aim at the common good: the welfare of the entire planet, not just of its people, but also of Nature.
Various countries are claiming incredibly vast areas of land at the bottom of our seas and oceans, as well as the poles. Going way beyond the 200 mile continental shelf limit. Never satisfied and wanting to safeguard or increase their political and economic weight for generations to come. In their countries.
What about the countries that have a small coastline or none at all? Is it justified to claim thousands of miles of ocean land starting from just a pinprick of an uninhabited island?
Will the battle for oil and other minerals continue to cause damage our planet Earth cannot sustain?
Have we had to come to the 21st century to decide to start everything over again? Or to let it happen? Waging wars and battles to rule the waves or rather to have a “superior” welfare system in one country while utter misery in another.
Sorry, but that is surely not the way to go. It is time to change gears. And yes, drastically, in reverse.
Going at the speed we are going today, the probability is there will be very few future generations left.
Declaring the entire bottom of our oceans outside the 200 mile limit and the poles the property of Humanity. That is the right direction to take.
May we ask you to take a world vision? And battle for our oceans and poles to safeguard the future of all and to save our planet. Please send the “letter UNEP” to United Nations Environment Programme or UNEP to express your support for the Oceans for All Charter (www.oceansforall.org).
Many thanks for your valued support and for the action you take to make it happen.
