Green Climate Fund Deserves Double 0 Status
Posted by Jeff Id on March 23, 2012
You have to wonder why Fox News would make a big deal about a UN created international fund of a hundred billion dollars per year, having complete immunity from national law. This shouldn’t even be news IMHO. The fund is to protect the Earth, it shouldn’t have to pay taxes, or operate inside the whims and quirks of national governments.
The Green Climate Fund, which is supposed to help mobilize as much as $100 billion a year to lower global greenhouse gases, is seeking a broad blanket of U.N.-style immunity that would shield its operations from any kind of legal process, including civil and criminal prosecution, in the countries where it operates.
Mother Earth has rights too and so far, nobody is standing up for them. The Fox News idiots act like the earth doesn’t own its own property.
In the case of something like the GCF, this is “an issue of extending privileges and immunities to property rights,” in the opinion of Allan Meltzer, a distinguished professor of political economy at Carnegie Mellon University. “And these privileged people will not necessarily protect the property rights of others,” he adds.
It is for the good of the planet though. If we don’t take a stand to protect the Earth, the Earth has no reason to protect us. This is only 0.15 PERCENT of global GDP. We can do better people! We must do better.
Why shouldn’t those tasked with protecting the Earth, be properly protected from human laws?! They are doing the good work for all of mankind, giving guidance, funding, and technology, to the poor nations who are most affected by climate change. We cannot expect Zimbabwe to stand up on its own, without the help of rich nations, to the problems created by those same RICH nations.
The propaganda spread by Fox News drives me crazy.
