About "Save the Planet"
We are setting up this initiative on your behalf and it will
not stop until we have restored the planet to a civilized
and viable state.
We recognize that we are all divided into separate nations
and this is one of the main reasons we have remained powerless
as we remain subject to the whims of big business, governments,
dictators, multinationals and the host of other organisations
and individuals that facilitate the blind destruction of the
planet, which belongs to us all.
The true path of civilisation lies beyond wars and greed.
They are non-history. It has not started yet, our real history,
our road to enlightenment. We have hardly started the journey
and we've nearly destroyed our only vehicle. It lies in the
path of enlightened wisdom and genuine caring for each other.
The recent bushfires in Australia showed me we can do it.
The outcome of the greatest destruction of lives in this country,
from man-made forces, manifesting as climate change, showed
that when life is at stake, the love and caring for fellow
man and creature was not only the status quo, but the position
the nation aspired to, and the nation felt whole and healed
by giving and helping. The only true joys of life are in giving
- if we were only aware of it. And in a world of giving, we
are all the receivers, and therefore blessed indeed.
But there is much to do everywhere and we all must do it.
Please spread the word and ask your friends in every country

Good luck to all of us in this Final Battle for Planet Earth.

A personal perspective
United Nations Environment Committee
It is clear to everyone who has eyes to see and ears
to hear, that our poor longsuffering Planet Earth cannot
go on without enormous change. We are the most numerous of
the animal species which require food, water, shelter and
air in order to survive.
Our babies are vulnerable and require special care to bring
them into a world of love and health. To our undying shame,
this is not currently the case
The way in which we as a whole community, occupying almost
all corners of the globe, have chosen to treat our resources,
has brought disaster among us. What we believe has become
so divided from any single truth, that we can fight to the
death over inessentials. Yet we do not fight for our children
or for our Planet.
But if we had the chance to fight for the Planet, for the
capacity to take what we have, all the sadness and disaster
and destruction, and through good will turn it all into a
new and brilliant compassionate and happy way of living? If
we had that chance, then what?
We would not fight with guns and knives, with torture and
destruction and cruelty.
We would fight with our minds and our hearts and our vote.
If one billion of us united in our support of the survival
of the Planet, then we would have the right to be heard.
It costs nothing, you will be asked for nothing, except to
visit the website, and by so doing, add another vote for the
turning of our Planet to become a Place of Peace for all.
Then we would become
a (union) of the sensitive,
the considerate and the courageous. (We) are to be found in
all nations and classes and all through the ages. (We) represent
the true human tradition, the one permanent victory of our
race over cruelty and chaos.
