The U.N. General Assembly voted Thursday to take a first step toward establishing a Global Pact for the Environment, a decision the United States opposed.
The 193-member world body approved the resolution on a vote of 143-5 with seven abstentions. The U.S. was joined in voting against the resolution by Russia, Turkey, Syria and the Philippines.
The resolution asks Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to produce a report for the next General Assembly session starting in September that identifies and assesses possible gaps in international environmental law and related legal instruments. It also establishes a working group to discuss possible options for addressing any gaps with a view to making recommendations to the assembly in 2019 that could include holding a conference "to adopt an international instrument."
Of course, we should say no to such nonsense, but you can tell by the ridiculous regulations of the Environmental Protection Agency, regulation I might add that were not authorized by Congress, that America has been following certain climate change policies.
This is not unusual seeing that all across the US, the UN's Agenda 21 has been advancing in practice even though we never entered into a treaty that agreed to it.
French Ambassador Francois Delattre was one of those who promoted the lie of climate change (at least how the Communists present it) and how it is responsible for hundreds of thousands of deaths while remaining silent on the issue of child murder, ie. abortion, that has resulted in the deaths of hundreds of millions of babies throughout the world.
"The unprecedented deterioration of our environment is already causing hundreds of thousands of deaths due to planetary warming, water and air pollution, and the deterioration of biodiversity and soils," Delattre said. "These attacks on the environment are affecting the most vulnerable populations first. If we don’t act decisively, we are exposing ourselves to dire consequences: the exhaustion of natural resources, migrations, and an upsurge in conflicts."
He went on to add, "Given the urgency of this issue, the international community must assume new responsibilities and take another step forward. The adoption of the 2030 Agenda and the early entry in force of the Paris Agreement showed that it is possible to act concretely and ambitiously on environmental issues. By developing a new mechanism designed to strengthen our environmental commitment, we show that we are up to current and future challenges."
