Other Motivations

Here are some quotes, unquestionably from Maurice Strong (Rio de Janeiro, 3_14 June 1992):

from: http://www.un.org/esa/documents/ga/conf151/aconf15126-4.htm

Central to the issues we are going to have to deal with are patterns of production and consumption in the industrial world that are undermining the Earth life_support systems; the explosive increase in population, largely in the developing world, that is adding a quarter of a million people daily; deepening disparities between rich and poor that leave 75/per/cent of humanity struggling to live; and an economic system that takes no account of ecological costs or damage _ one which views unfettered growth as progress. We have been the most successful species ever; we are now a species out of control.


The concentration of population growth in developing countries and economic growth in the industrialized countries has deepened, creating imbalances which are unsustainable, in either environmental or economic terms. Since 1972, world population has grown by 1.7/billion people, equivalent to almost the entire population at the beginning of this century; 1.5/billion of them live in developing countries, which are the least able to support them. This cannot continue. Population must be stabilized, and rapidly. If we do not do it, nature will, and much more brutally.


Environment must be integrated into every aspect of our economic policy and decision_making, as well as the culture and value systems which motivate economic behaviour.


The industrialized world cannot escape its primary responsibility to lead the way in establishing this partnership and making it work. Up to now, the damage inflicted on our planet has been done largely inadvertently. We now know what we are doing. We have lost our innocence. It would be more than irresponsible to continue down this path.


Then there is his famous quote, apparently postulated as a theme of a novel:

Isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrialized civilizations collapse? Isn't it our responsibility to bring this about?
