The "Earth Summit", held in Rio de Janiero in 1992 had a broad agenda which has since failed to live up to its advance billing. It was an environmental milestone of sorts, however, and saw a number of Earthtrust representatives doing their best to make it all work. Notable among these events was Earthtrust Marine Division Director Jim Logan signing the "Earth Charter" underwater in the polluted bay, in a somewhat peculiar event which probably sums up the Earth Summit well.
