In the present state of the world, the space age, human beings who are the trustees of the earth have a duty to bequeath a clean mother earth to nurture all living beings. We must rally and inspire a grand effort for earth, and an earth campaign that will eliminate poverty and pollution and bring new freedom, order and opportunity. Climate is changing due to human activity. Unless we act now, our children will inherit a hotter world, dirtier air and water, more severe floods and droughts and more wildfires. Potential increase of about 2.5 to 10 degrees Fahrenheit per year is observed. Air pollution affects everyone. Motor vehicle pollution has been substantially reduced with the help of advanced emission control technologies. A common approach to continuous improvement is needed to build a sustainable earth.
