Understand that I appeal to your prominence and influential leadership asthe 33rd national president of the Boy Scouts of America.I appeal to you as a fellow Eagle Scout, whose ideals include “leaving our campsitecleaner than we found it” and being
to God, our environment, and each other.Today, more than ever, we must do more thansimply respect “
.” We mustconserve the “livability” or “survivability of “
” because civilization is dependentupon the 12,000-year stable climate that allowedcivilization to develop to the level we now enjoy.Repeating a statement in my March 25th letter:Celebration of the 100th anniversary of the
Eagle Scout Award
, for me, is about this:
Passing our legacy to future generations,within our families, and far beyond.
I appeal to you as a fellow father and son ofEagle Scouts. I appeal to you as a father ofchildren of child-bearing age who will give youcherished gifts of beautiful grandchildren.I appeal to you -- as a most prominent Captain of business and industry -- to emulateCharles Grant whose action as Chairman of the British East India Company 200 yearsago led to the abolition of slavery in the British Empire (seehttp://bit.ly/Charles_Grant).Your bold and courageous
within your industry can set an exampleand be the turning point for society and governments which are paralyzed in stalemate.
