Today’s World Is Inter-dependent.
UK Prime Minister Tony Blair says: We know the problems. A child in Africa dies every three seconds from famine, disease or conflict. We know that if climate change is not stopped, all parts of the world will suffer. Some will even be destroyed, and we know the solution – sustainable development. So the issue for this summit is the political will. We know one other thing. The key characteristic of today’s world is its inter-dependence. Your problem becomes my problem. One country’s war becomes another country’s asylum seekers. One country’s pollution becomes another country’s floods. (09/02/02) [Synergic Earth News]
