A brief philosophy from the Founder
In an address at Carnegie-Mellon University
in 1971, Revelle outlined the philosophy that epitomized his life:
- We must work to improve the quality of
the social environment created by human beings . . .
- We must stem the deterioration of our
natural environment by preserving its wonder, beauty, and diversity
. . .
- We must face the facts of world population
growth . . .
- We must re-inspire our universities .
- We should work for the abolition of atomic
weapons . . .
- To create a new world, we must first create
within ourselves a higher concern for good, a stronger will for
right action, and a deeper sense of brotherhood . . . .
