Bolivia Grants The Earth Human Rights
The Bolivian government have enshrined the rights of mother earth in law with a ceremony at Murillo Plaza during earth day.
The legislation enacted by President Evo Morales puts the earth on equal footing with humanity. In Bolivia the earth now has:
- The right to life including the integrity of ecosystems and natural processes, and the necessary conditions for regeneration.
- The right to biodiversity which should be preserved without genetic modification.
- The right to water in sufficient quantity and quality to sustain life, protected from pollution.
- The right to clean air.
- The right to equilibrium through “maintain[ing] or restor[ing]] the interrelation, interdependence, complementarity, and functionality” of all parts of the Earth.
- The right to restoration of ecosystems damaged by human activity.
- The right to live free of pollution including toxic and radioactive waste.
The earth doesn’t need us arrogant humans to grant it rights under the false construct of law. The earth just is, and will continue long after we’ve gone.
The argument for “saving the earth” has nothing to do with the earth and everything to do with humans wanting to preserve their own survival on the earth. The earth is just fine.
The problem with creating laws to give the earth rights is that law is a concept created by man. Thus the only conscious consequence will be on man themselves.
Now most of this legislation seems fair and noble, but like all law it’s open to interpretation. Who gets to decide when an ecosystem is considered damaged?
The Bolivian leaders and their Eco-Fascist pals in the UN would have you believe that man, through the production of CO2 is causing the earth to warm to a catastrophic level. This however is still a debated issue amongst scientists and the alarmists are still waiting for the sky to fall.
