An international court for the environment has been proposed which would be the prevailing authority on all environmental legal matters.
Stephen Hockman QC is proposing a body similar to the International Court of Justice in The Hague to be the supreme legal authority on issues regarding the environment.
The first role of the new body would be to enforce international agreements on cutting greenhouse gas emissions set to be agreed next year.
But the court would also fine countries or companies that fail to protect endangered species or degrade the natural environment and enforce the “right to a healthy environment“.
While “the first role of the new body would be to enforce international agreements”, the UN Climate Change Conference in Poznan, Poland got underway today to force international agreements.
I’m frankly surprised such an international court has not been proposed before; perhaps it has and I just missed it.
I don’t know if this court or any similar court will come into existence in the near future, but I am sure it is on it’s way.
Of course you know well who the worst offender of these international environmental agreements will be, America. You then also know which nation will be the most heavily fined and, or sanctioned, America.
America, you know that nation that provides the majority of U.N. funding.
America, the nation that brought the modern world to you.
The Enviro-Nazis are gearing up and now they will have a friend in the White House. Our refusal to jump on board with the Kyoto Agreement saved America millions of jobs and likely Trillions of dollars.
Barack Obama is short on ideas when it comes to global warming, but he does believe it does exist and that it is caused by man. He will not be a leader on this issue, he will be a follower of other nations. Basically, where ever the greenies train goes, Obama will be on board.
Think we have an economic crisis now? Wait until we get into the full swing of being ‘green’.
Holding on tight to your job right now? Better grasp it with both hands and tether yourself to it.
A global environmental court, the undermining of the Posse Comitatus Act, don’t you just love the smell of fascism arriving in the morning.
