~ Idea 4554 ~
On the eve of the year 2000, which will be the 20th anniversary of the creation of the UN University for Peace in Costa Rica I woke up with recollections of how this path-breaking, novel institution came to be born on planet Earth. And I had the following dreams:
1. That the University should become the school or meeting place of all heads of state of this planet;
2. That it should become a place of retirement for UN officials who, like me, would teach and transmit their experience and ideas to the world's younger generation;
3. That the Earth Council, created by the second world conference on the environment in Rio de Janeiro in 1992 should be transferred from San José to the natural grounds of the University for Peace* and help us become the new Athens of the world.
* That dream was fulfilled in 2000.

Chapter 4 - Our Place in Time
The study of organic deposits in the ice layers of our Poles has revealed that the last million years were divided between ice ages of about 100,000 years and warm periods of 20,000 years. The question now arises: are we entering a period of accelerating warming due to our activities or are we coming to the end of the current warm period and heading towards a new ice age?*
In the series of world conferences convened by the UN for a better knowledge of Planet Earth, the first world climate conferences in history met 1979, 1982 and 1989. Opinions were divided among scientists, but a world-wide climate watch and study program was agreed upon. The most vivid proof of human optimism is that means for avoiding a warming up of the planet and techniques for the avoidance of a new ice age are being considered, for example reflection of solar heat by satellite and spraying ice masses with heat-absorbing carbon black! Imagine! A species ready to change the geophysical course of a planet! We are really a tremendous race in the universe! God may even have some admiration for us.
