There is already an article on the UNCED, you might want to think about merging this one with that one (or vice versa). --Lexor 11:51, 23 Sep 2003 (UTC)

Thanks for pointing this out. Done. -- Viajero 16:47, Sep 23, 2003 (UTC)

'Critics' point out?[edit]

Can we have a source for this? As it stands this is definitely POV

conflict with United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change page[edit]

Page Earth_Summit says: "Both Convention on Biological Diversity and Framework Convention on Climate Change were set as legally binding agreements."

Page United_Nations_Framework_Convention_on_Climate_Change says: "The treaty as originally framed set no mandatory limits on greenhouse gas emissions for individual nations and contained no enforcement provisions; it is therefore considered legally non-binding"

Not sure which is right. 03:56, 20 April 2007 (UTC)

Hunt is critical[edit]

Hunt is an environmentalist who attended several of the congress meetings.

This video supposedly includes excepts of the congress meetings as well as philosophical position discussions.

  • Can any of this criticism be included in this wiki article?

A quotation from the NY Times International Edition was mentioned / displayed in this clip.

BFI, the garbage collection company, is mentioned at a point about 22 minutes into the clip. Initially this comment was added for a Wilderness Conference article Oldspammer (talk) 04:35, 17 May 2010 (UTC) but I have copy pasted it here now. Oldspammer (talk) 20:05, 8 June 2010 (UTC)

Earth Summit or Earth Summits?[edit]

I understood that the Earth Summits were recurring events that started in 1972 2.1 1972 Stockholm 2.2 1982 Nairobi 2.3 1992 Rio de Janeiro 2.4 2002 Johannesburg 2.5 2012 "Rio+20" place is still to be determined

The french language wikipedia is much detailed on this:

Shall we start translating and copy/pasting that?�SvenAERTS (talk) 14:26, 19 October 2010 (UTC)

Do Nairobians talk in French? — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:51, 9 October 2012 (UTC)

Resource in The Guardian currently[edit] (talk) 23:24, 20 September 2011 (UTC)

Maybe United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio 2012) would be a better location. (talk) 06:14, 21 September 2011 (UTC)

What is to be done with this?[edit]

It is related, but not central to a simple article. (talk) 19:22, 24 September 2011 (UTC)

Sources modified on Earth Summit[edit]

Hello fellow Wikipedians,

I have just attempted to maintain the sources on Earth Summit. I managed to add archive links to 2 sources, out of the total 2 I modified, whiling tagging 0 as dead.

Please take a moment to review my changes to verify that the change is accurate and correct. If it isn't, please modify it accordingly and if necessary tag that source with {{cbignore}} to keep Cyberbot from modifying it any further. Alternatively, you can also add {{nobots|deny=InternetArchiveBot}} to keep me off the page's sources altogether. Let other users know that you have reviewed my edit by leaving a comment on this post.

Below, I have included a list of modifications I've made:
