Foreword to The New Climate Deal, A Pocket Guide, by the WWF:

This is the generation that must stop the spread of pollution

that is slowly killing the planet…

Rolling back the tide of a warming planet

is a responsibility that we have to ourselves,

to our children, and all of those who

will inherit creation long after we are gone.”

-Barack Obama, Strasbourg. April 2009
