Bush plan for climate change: Advice to Bush for reducing greenhouse gases and true prosperity

PEJ News - Joan Russow - On September 27, 2007, Bush opened his “International Defiance of International Law” Conference by stating that government should “Reduce greenhouse gas emissions but not undermine economic growth or prevent economic prosperity for its people”

To seriously address greenhouse gas emissions, Bush should begin by initiating an immediate program for true prosperity, and lead the way to call upon governments and the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to call for and support the following.



( ) call upon his 15 odd accomplices to comply with Chapter 33 of Agenda 21, to reallocate military expenses; to acknowledge the inextricable link between climate change and conflict over resources, such as oil, water etc, .and to pledge never to use the policy of pre-emption to justify invading another state for resources, [or for any other reason]

( ) call upon the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change to investigate and estimate the full impact on greenhouse gas emissions by the military and demand that each state release information related to the greenhouse gas emissions from the production of all weapons systems, military exercises, from war games, weapons testing, military aviation, environmental warfare, troop transfer, military operations, waste generation, reconstruction after acts of violent interventions etc.;

( ) support the call for the disbanding of NATO, whose collective activities have contributed to, not only the perpetuation of the scourge of war and the violation of international peremptory norms, but also the substantial release of greenhouse gas emissions.

( )      recognize that the promotion of nuclear energy as a solution to climate change violates a fundamental principle that the solution should never be worse than the problem it is intended to solve

( )      resist fossil fuel and nuclear industry lobbying for voluntary compliance measures and subsidize socially equitable and environmentally safe and sound renewable energy options.

( )       etc.

( )       etc.
