Read and sign their original Declaration on Environmental Stewardship. Here is a key part of that declaration:
"While some environmental concerns are well founded and serious, others are without foundation or greatly exaggerated. Some well-founded concerns focus on human health problems in the developing world arising from inadequate sanitation, widespread use of primitive biomass fuels like wood and dung, and primitive agricultural, industrial, and commercial practices; distorted resource consumption patterns driven by perverse economic incentives; and improper disposal of nuclear and other hazardous wastes in nations lacking adequate regulatory and legal safeguards. Some unfounded or undue concerns include fears of destructive manmade global warming, overpopulation, and rampant species loss. The real and merely alleged problems differ in the following ways:
- The former are proven and well understood, while the latter tend to be speculative.
- The former are often localized, while the latter are said to be global and cataclysmic in scope.
- The former are of concern to people in developing nations especially, while the latter are of concern mainly to environmentalists in wealthy nations.
- The former are of high and firmly established risk to human life and health, while the latter are of very low and largely hypothetical risk.
- Solutions proposed to the former are cost effective and maintain proven benefit, while solutions to the latter are unjustifiably costly and of dubious benefit."
