Skip to comments.New UN Proposal – Put ‘Ecocide’ and ‘Deniers’ on Par With ‘Genocide’ and ‘Crimes Against Humanity’

Britain's left-of-center daily - "The Guardian" - has reported that former international environmental lawyer Polly Higgins has launched a new campaign urging the United Nations and the International Criminal Court to deem environmental damage on par with genocide and crimes against humanity in international courts.
"Supporters of a new ecocide law also believe it could be used to prosecute climate deniers' who distort science and facts to discourage voters and politicians from taking action to tackle global warming and climate change," Juliette Jowit, "Guardian's" environmental editor wrote April 9.
"Higgins makes her case for ecocide to join that list with a simple equation: extraction leads to ecocide, which leads to resource depletion, and resource depletion leads to conflict. The link is if you keep over-extracting from your capital asset we'll have very little left and we will go to war over our capital asset, the last of it,' adds Higgins, who has support in the UN and European commission, and among climate scientists, environmental lawyers and international campaign groups."

Global Warming is a LIE.
But the supporters won’t f**king listen....
No right to free speech where she comes from?
No understanding of it either???
Who is to determine what speech is “arguing with settled science”?
Who is to determine who is a “denier” ???
No First Amendment where she comes from?
Then I guess no Second Amendment either ...
Didja read that 91% of UK burglaries are done when the homeowner is IN the home???
They know that you don’t have a gun inside.
So they knock on the door and if you open it up WHAM! A punch to the face, and then the robbery starts.
Or the torture of your family.
Or the rape.
I’d rather die than live like that.
They better think about how much pollution will be produced when the UN building is in flames.
man..the “elite” really mustn’t remember Marie Antoinette..1789...”let them eat cake”.....
Here ya go UN - I am putting it on record right here and now- I am a climate change denier and I eat animals and plants every day, I drive a car and use electricity and so am by these people’s standards guilty of Ecocide.
My intentions are to never change my beliefs or actions so come and get me as soon as you have the balls to do so!
See ya in the camps brothers and sisters!
Go ahead, declare me a criminal over my well-founded belief that the climate panic is based on a hoax. Make my day.
Sad how total wackadoos have become the accepted intellectual elite in Western Europe.
Criminalization of “incoerrect” attitudes-thought crime.
