EDITOR'S OPENING REMARKS Make no mistake, the world leaders need to make a stand and do what they were elected to do - make tough decisions and lead. Time is no longer on our side. The green revolution is underway and we must continue this growth by involving the civil society. Governments, NGO's, corporate business leaders, their advisors and the public alike need to work together to reach our global commitment. Only when all parties sit down and develop a clear framework that engages all stakeholders, can sustainability be achieved. All that is needed is leadership.The stage is set for the upcoming Rio+20 summit - the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development in Rio de Janeiro on 20-22 June. The responsibility is clear: if we do not have leadership, the legacy we will leave our children and their children's children will be one of shame. Herein, some of the greatest minds in the world explain , "it is not rocket science."Gary Nichols-RothManaging Editor Managing EditorGary Nichols-RothEditorElizabeth RenskiBusiness Development DirectorJames D.
