Dear fellow human being,
Dear inhabitant of this wonderful planet,
Various countries are claiming incredibly vast areas of land at the bottom of our seas and oceans, as well as the poles. Going way beyond the 200 mile continental shelf limit. Never satisfied and wanting to safeguard or increase their political and economic weight for generations to come. In their countries.
What about the countries that have a small coastline or none at all? Is it justified to claim thousands of miles of ocean land and of the poles starting from just a pinprick of an uninhabited island?
Will the battle for oil and other minerals continue to cause damage our planet Earth cannot sustain? Why continue to invest in new oil fields anyway, while oil is too polluting?
Have we had to come to the 21st century to decide to start everything all over again? Or to let it happen? Waging wars and battles to rule the waves or rather to have a "superior" welfare system in one country while utter misery in another.
Sorry, but that is surely not the way to go. It is time to change gears. And yes, drastically, in reverse.
Going at the speed we are going at today, the probability is there will be very few future generations left.
Declaring the entire bottom of our oceans outside the 200 mile limit and both poles the property of Humanity. That is the right direction to take.
Let us convince our leaders to start thinking in a new way with a world vision. And battle for our oceans to safeguard the future of all and to save our planet.
Many thanks for giving this serious thought. And for the action you take to make
Oceans for all
