The UN’s Global Green Law is going nowhere for now

It may have taken a knock, but it’s by no means the last we’ll hear of it, as CFACT explains.

The first major meeting of the UN’s (take a breath) “Ad hoc Open-ended Working Group towards a Global Pact for the Environment” or simply OEWG, convened on Monday, 14 January 2019 at the United Nations Environment Program offices in Nairobi, Kenya.

During the week-long session, delegates considered the report of the United Nations Secretary-General (UNSG), titled “Gaps in international environmental law and environment-related instruments: towards a global pact for the environment.”

This is the newly hatched grand green dream, for a binding set of new global laws that both encompasses and surpasses all of the existing multinational environmental treaties and agreements (MEAs). I am not making this up.

Not surprisingly this wackiness originated in France, where President Macron wants to be the green king of the world.

Introduced at the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly in 2017 by Macron, the pact began its voyage through the UN system, and UN General Assembly resolution 72/277 subsequently established the OEWG with a mandate to submit its recommendations in the first half of 2019.

About 300 participants attended the meeting, especially government delegates from many countries, including the U.S., plus representatives of various international and UN organizations.

The good news is that the meeting turned into something of a fiasco. It turns out that the countries are not excited about surrendering their treaties and agreements.

The issue is so-called “gaps” in the existing legal system, at least according to the Secretary-General’s contentious report. Many delegates, including America’s, said they were biased wishes, not gaps. In fact they were seen by many countries as attacks on existing laws and agreements.

The Trump team was quite aggressive, but so were many others.

    Defund and disband the open ended group.
    Fire or retire or transfer the leaders to Greenland or Antarctica.
    This group otherwise will be like a dangerous cancer cell, just waiting to go malignant.

    …. Sorry, hit post too fast.
    It is disgusting but not surprising that Macron Napoleon pushed this terrible anti-human idea through.
    I wish the Yellow jacket freedom fighters great success.

    I always enjoy your post very much. However, I was woundering why you have not mentioned the Marshall Medoff story recently featured in a segment of 60-minutes on CBS. It seemed to me to be the biggest energy-related related story of the decade. What am I missing?

    Thanks,
