“A leading proponent of Earth Ethics, Henderson has been one of the critics to point out that the definitions of reality devised by natural and social scientists often pertain to the realities they are paid to study — raising questions as to who has funded these investigators and theoreticians, and why? Who deems certain research grants to be worthy of funding? Which questions crop up in the first place? Henderson believes that the various threats to peace, community security, and good environment have led us into a new era in which we are obliged to look for values, information, and know-how that we seemed to be able to do without until recent decades.
“To accelerate and incentivize the good in human societies, leaders at all levels and sectors need to promote and exemplify higher standards of behavior, based on “The Golden Rule” and teach higher levels of awareness of human interdependence. We humans now need to evolve as a species toward maturity and accept the scientific knowledge of how our home planet functions in relation to our “Mother Star” the Sun, and our interdependence with all other life forms in the biosphere.” ~ Hazel Henderson
