Scholars claim Earth must be saved with more global governance

Steven Bernstein from the University of Toronto is among a group of scholars who are publishing a paper in the March 16, 2012 issue of Science calling for changes in how environmental organizations operate to save the Earth. They claim the focus has relied too heavily on national and international groups when it should be changed to “a more coherent and robust planetary stewardship model” to preserve the Earth. That’s code for “we need you all to move over and let the UN take over your operations worldwide for the good of the planet.”

Their criticism is that the current situation moves too slowly for the rapid decline they claim is happening to the ecosystems. So what are some of their proposals? Here are three:

1. “Reform and upgrade the environmental agencies and programs of the UN to ensure a strong environmental organization with a sizeable role in agenda-setting, norm-development, compliance management, science assessment and capacity-building.” [Or, in plain language, let the UN dictate what national & international groups should do for the environment.]

2. “More strongly integrate the social, economic and environmental pillars of sustainable development from local to global levels and create a new Sustainable Development Council that gives special predominance to the largest economies – the Group of 20 countries – as primary members that hold 50 per cent of the votes, with the rest distributed among smaller states.” [In other words, hand over your resources to the UN so we can create an agency that will re-distribute your resources to where we want them to go.]

3. “Close remaining regulatory gaps at the global level, including in the development and deployment of emerging technology like nanotechnology, synthetic biology and geo-engineering, to ensure transparency, information-sharing, engage multiple stakeholders in policy dialogues and ensure that environmental considerations are fully respected.” [That’s fancy language for “we want all nations to adopt our policies so we can use everything at our disposal to control how you live your lives (what you eat, what you wear, etc.) to ensure you meet our standards and those who don’t will be ratted out to the proper authorities for punishment.”]

And in the latter time of their kingdom, when the transgressors are come to the full, a king of fierce countenance, and understanding dark sentences, shall stand up.  And his power shall be mighty, but not by his own power: and he shall destroy wonderfully, and shall prosper, and practise, and shall destroy the mighty and the holy people. And through his policy also he shall cause craft to prosper in his hand; and he shall magnify himself in his heart, and by peace shall destroy many: he shall also stand up against the Prince of princes; but he shall be broken without hand. Daniel 8:23-25

  1. Just wondered if you were aware of this news story. I received it via e mail and am asking for your prayers for this pastor and his family.
    Yahuah bless and Shalom

    Death Sentence Confirmed for Pastor Nardarkhani
    In a blow to religious freedom, authorities in Iran have confirmed that Youcef Nardarkhani who has been accused of apostasy will now face the death penalty.
    I sponsored a Senate motion last year calling for stronger action on the issue of religious freedom and humans rights abuses against Christian minorities including Youcef (http://www.senator.fawcett.net.au/Religious%20Freedoms041111.pdf).
    I recently co-sponsored another motion in the Senate calling on the Iranian Government to release Pastor Nardarkhani. You can view the motion here.

    You can write to the Iranian Embassy in Canberra at http://www.iranembassy.org.au/english_AU/default.aspx to add your voice.

    1. Yes thanks for this info. I’ve been monitoring developments about this case as well as Asia Bibi’s case in Pakistan. Iran denies they will put him to death but they are known for their ‘lie & deny’ policies.
