Earth is not at the center of the universe.

We do not own Earth or any other part of the universe.

We are now a spacefaring civilization, but we will not reduce our efforts towards creating an Earth that’s sustainable for all life it hosts.

We have learned many lessons from our brief inhabitation of planet Earth. We will take these lessons into account and apply them to future planets we visit.

The Environment is not limited to that of Earth, our definition and understanding of The Environment as a concept must be expanded.

As far as we know, any planet has the potential to host life. We shall therefore treat any extra­terrestrial environment in such a manner as to avoid hindering any life-forming processes.
