“Ecocide” Equal to Genocide and Crimes Against Humanity?

13 Apr

NewsBusters reports that “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.”

In case you missed it, Polly Higgins has a website called “Trees Have Rights Too.”  Be sure to check it out!

“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

Why would anyone be a denier of “climate change” or “man-made global warming?”  The debate is over, right?  How could anyone deny it?  Let’s see….there was:

ClimateGate, where hacked emails showed global warming fraud.

* A retraction of a warning by the UN that man-made global warming would destroy Himalayan glaciers in 25 years, when it was found out that instead of conducting the science themselves, they took the word of an activist in an interview an adopted it.

* AmazonGate, where it was shown again that the UN used an environmental advocacy group’s opinion and presented it as “research” or “science.”

* Calls for the head of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) to step down.

So, where are we?  They lied to us about shrinking glaciers, increasing hurricanes, and rising sea levels.  They never bothered to conduct actual science to prove their theories.  Instead they used the opinions of journalists and environmental advocates and adopted them as their own. Then you have Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth,” which was full of errors.  So much so that a judge in Britain ruled that the only way it could be shown in schools is if it comes with a note explaining the NINE scientific errors in the film.

All of this and this lady has the nerve to want to make deniers of “climate change” equal to genocide or crimes against humanity?  Amazing.
