"Climate Change" Is "Global Injustice"
"Climate change" is now a "human rights" issue, and rich countries have an "obligation" to help the poorer ones, says ex-UN blowhard Mary Robinson:
More attention to human rights is needed in tackling climate change, former Irish President Mary Robinson will say in a lecture.Robinson must have missed the latest UN memo downgrading human's impact on world climate.
Her speech at Chatham House, a think-tank in London, will argue that climate change is now an issue of global injustice.
The ex-UN high commissioner for human rights will urge policymakers to adopt "a radically different approach".
She will also urge rich nations to meet their climate change obligations.
"We can no longer think of climate change as an issue where we the rich give charity to the poor to help them cope," she is expected to say.
"Climate change has already begun to affect the fulfilment of human rights and our shared human rights framework entitles and empowers developing countries and impoverished communities to claim protection of these rights."
If rich, developed countries were expected to cut emissions, would poor, developing ones be expected to do the same? Slashing man-made pollutants in industrialized countries would only be offset by a rapid and exponential surge from developing ones.
When even the UN admits that the "conclusions" about "global warming"/"climate change" are subject to debate and in need of revision, is there any sense that talk of "global injustice" is not only unwarranted but along the lines of the typical moonbat-enviro nutcase's anti-capitalist logic?
