Yesterday I met one veteran Green Party activist who remonstrated against the language of the 10 steps. I want to request your opinion on two questions regarding step 2, which formerly read: I understand that carbon emissions are a threat to life on Earth.
In response to the criticism I've added the word "excessive" before emissions. Is this a good change?
Should we qualify "life" in that statement, eg. "present life," "life as we know it," "current species"? Or is it unnecessary to spell it out? My original idea was to keep the steps short, and spell things out on a separate sheet.
While we're at it, are there any other comments, suggestions, criticisms of the language in the "Steps?" My hope is to have this material as clear and concise as possible by Earth Day.
