[GMW #3757] Nurture Creative Crazy Ideas Like The Common Concern Of Climate Change

[GMW #3757] Nurture Creative Crazy Ideas Like The Common Concern Of Climate Change Idea Dream - Robert Muller's Ideas 3001 to 4000
~ Idea 4152 ~
When in the 70's I was Director of the UN Secretary General Office I received letters from scientists who urged the United Nations to look into the climate of the world which they considered to be in danger of warming and leading to a change of direction of ocean currents by the year 2020. I listened to them and obtained the convening of the first UN Conference on World Climate in 1979, but in United Nations circles I was considered crazy to come up with that idea. Well, the next twenty years were spent in denying that there would be major climatic changes on planet Earth. Finally in July 2001 at a conference of 180 governments on that subject in Bonn it was stated that there can be no longer any doubt that there is a danger of climatic changes. The debate moved to what should be done about it. It confirms the old saying that a new idea or concern is first considered crazy, then it is fought noisily and finally it is recognized as common sense. But what precious time this makes us lose in a rapidly and dangerously changing world.

It would be fascinating if the United Nations or the World Health Organization would collect and study the etymology, the meaning of the word death in all languages of the world.
