International court to PUNISH non-compliant states over AGW

Even though the world is rejecting this global warming nonsense (and rightly so), politicians (read lawmakers and lawyers) are going to make certain they get their required mileage out of the scam, given that there has been a significant investment of time and money in propping it up.

I hope that our new President-elect will reject this stupidity and protect our sovereignty. My guess is that he won't; he has made clear that he believes in the corrupt U.N. and international influence over our country's foreign policy (so that the world will "like us").

Lawyers call for international court for the environment - Telegraph:

A former chairman of the Bar Council is calling for an international court for the environment to punish states that fail to protect wildlife and prevent climate change.

Stephen Hockman QC is proposing a body similar to the International Court of Justice in The Hague to be the supreme legal authority on issues regarding the environment.

The first role of the new body would be to enforce international agreements on cutting greenhouse gas emissions set to be agreed next year.

But the court would also fine countries or companies that fail to protect endangered species or degrade the natural environment and enforce the “right to a healthy environment”.

The innovative idea is being presented to an audience of politicians, scientists and public figures for the first time at a symposium at the British Library.

Mr Hockman, a deputy High Court judge, said that the threat of climate change means it is more important than ever for the law to protect the environment.
