Marching together for the Earth:
The Earth Charter warns that "For many, climate change can often seem distant and indefinable - a vague and complex issue, far away in time, a problem that our grandchildren will have to solve. But this is only because they are still fortunate enough to be isolated from the imminent consequences. Climate change has genuine effects on people, animals, ecosystems and the natural resources on which we all depend. Left uncontrolled, these effects will rage like wildfire".
