Ted Turner’s 11 Voluntary Initiatives. Real Cowboys Protect the Planet!

Eleven Voluntary Initiatives 

http://www.visionsmc.com/2011/03/25/ted-turners-voluntary-initiatives/

 By Ted Turner

1. I promise to care for Planet Earth and all living things thereon, especially my fellow human beings.

2. I promise to treat all persons everywhere with dignity, respect, and friendliness.

3. I promise to have no more than one or two children.

4. I promise to use my best efforts to help save what is left of our natural world in its undisturbed state, and to restore degraded areas.

5. I promise to use as little of our nonrenewable resources as possible.

6. I promise to minimize my use of toxic chemicals, pesticides, and other poisons, and to encourage others to do the same.

7. I promise to contribute to those less fortunate, to help them become self-sufficient and enjoy the benefits of a decent life including clean air and water, adequate food,  health care, housing, education, and individual rights.

8. I reject the use of force, in particular military force, and I support the United Nations arbitration of international disputes.

9. I support the total elimination of all nuclear, chemical, and biological weapons, and ultimately the elimination of all weapons of mass destruction.

10. I support the United Nations and its efforts to improve the condition of the planet.

11. I support renewable energy and feel we should move rapidly to contain greenhouse gases.

  1. Love #5, Ted. What do your private jet and 28 properties run on? Bison farts??

  2. I love this. LOVE LOVE LOVE this. I’m stealing it, Ted, if you don’t mind, or, to speak more compassionately, I would like to spread your wisdom and I promise not to take the credit for its brilliance. You Rock Mr. Turner!
