U.N. Prepares to Debate Whether 'Mother Earth' Deserves Human Rights Status

United Nations diplomats on Wednesday will set aside pressing issues of international peace and security to devote an entire day debating the rights of Mother Earth.
A bloc of mostly socialist governments lead by Bolivia have put the issue on the General Assembly agenda to discuss the creation of a U.N. treaty that would grant the same rights found in the Universal Declaration of Human Rights to Mother Nature.
Treaty supporters want the establishment of legal systems to maintain balance between human rights and what they perceive as the inalienable rights of other members of the Earth community -- plants, animals, and terrain.
Communities and environmental activists would be given more legal power to monitor and control industries and development to ensure harmony between humans and nature. Though the United States and other Western governments are supportive of sustainable development, some see the upcoming event, Harmony with Nature, as political grandstanding -- an attempt to blame environmental degradation and climate change on capitalism.

According to the UN, the PLANET EARTH deserves 'human rights' status.
But, according to that same UN, WOMEN do not.
Nuke the UN from orbit. It's the only way to be sure.
Send them the mother earth Uganda.
So, who will have standing to sue on behalf of Mother Earth?
Environuts and Third World dictators.
Poor headline in my opinion. As I posted the other day on the thread about Bolivia creating this as law, and I wrote it was probably a test for the UN as they have been working on this for a number of years.
IOW the UN has been debating this for years. I don't agree they are preparing to debate something they already have in the debate mill.
In a completely predictable twist, it’ll be those leftists who wish to advance control over everyone’s life through the climate agenda.
Al Gore of course.
Sheesh, I think I’ve had my fill of news for today. The whole world has gone mad!
The clear outcome of such an international law is not to elevate mother earth to human status, but to lower human beings so they function within oligarchies as the equivalent of wheat, concrete, oil, and lumber.
At the end of WW II the whole world was owned by basically nine countries. Now something like 130 additional countries have been created. The people of those countries unwrapped the gift of independence, not to find the freedoms they expected, but instead the famines, civil wars, and repressive governments their ancestors suffered under before colonialism. The General Assembly has become a promotion and perpetuation society for aspiring totalitarians.
HUMAN rights? An insult to the millions around the world that WORSHIP Our Mother the Earth.
I hope President Palin will give the UN everything it deserves - hopefully all in her first term.
An attempt to develop legal cause for international atrocities.
They will tolerate genocide and even omnicide for the sake of the person “Mother Earth”.
Mother Earth=Social Justice?
Earth worship is one thing, common sense is another.
The twilight zone Obama and our freaking media want; in which the ultimate goal will be China in charge global communism; is plain as day in four languages.
