Right to life
David Orr, writing in Ocean Arks International's Annals of Earth:

It is time to expand our political horizons in ways commensurate with the extent of our effects on the future and the community of life. It is time to adopt the right to life writ large enough to grant standing to our posterity whose lives, liberty and property are imperiled by our actions. The principle involved draws from our own revolutionary experience simply states that:

No generation and no nation has the right to alter the biogeochemical cycles of Earth or impair the stability, integrity, and beauty of natural systems, the consequences of which would fall as a form of intergenerational remote tyranny on all future generations.
