Who’s Up For Making “Ecocide” An International Crime?

Gee, what could possibly go wrong?

As the Climate Crisis Grows, a Movement Gathers to Make ‘Ecocide’ an International Crime Against the Environment

In 1948, after Nazi Germany exterminated millions of Jews and other minorities during World War II, the United Nations adopted a convention establishing a new crime so heinous it demanded collective action. Genocide, the nations declared, was “condemned by the civilized world” and justified intervention in the affairs of sovereign states.

Interestingly, a goodly chunk of Leftists/Warmists hate Jews and Israel.

Now, a small but growing number of world leaders including Pope Francis and French President Emmanuel Macron have begun citing an offense they say poses a similar threat to humanity and remains beyond the reach of existing legal conventions: ecocide, or widespread destruction of the environment.

The Pope describes ecocide as “the massive contamination of air, land and water,” or “any action capable of producing an ecological disaster,” and has proposed making it a sin for Catholics.

The Pontiff has also endorsed a campaign by environmental activists and legal scholars to make ecocide the fifth crime before the International Criminal Court in The Hague as a legal deterrent to the kinds of far-reaching environmental damage that are driving mass extinction, ecological collapse and climate change. The monumental step, which faces a long road of global debate, would mean political leaders and corporate executives could face charges and imprisonment for “ecocidal” acts. (big snip)

The campaign to criminalize ecocide is now moving from the fringe of advocacy into global diplomacy, pushed by a growing recognition among advocates and many political leaders that climate change and environmental causes are tied inherently to human rights and social justice.

The effort remains a long shot and is at least years from fruition, international and environmental law experts say. Advocates will have to navigate political tensions over whether national governments or the international community have ultimate control over natural resources. And they’ll likely face opposition from countries with high carbon emissions and deep ties to industrial development.

The environmentalists must also figure out how criminal law would address climate change, which has been driven by practices like burning coal and gasoline that are not only legal, but central to the global economy.

Will they keep the doctrine of innocent till proven guilty, not something present in a good chunk of the world? Or just throw these people in jail? How soon till you driving a fossil fueled vehicle to get a burger is considered Ecocide? Till they can demand you live in a tiny house, only buy certain Approved products, and only travel in Approved ways? Want to use your wood fireplace? Nope. In fact, you have to take it out. Same with that outdoor firepit. Wood pizza ovens? Gone. Same with wood fired smokers. Of course, since meat will be verboten, won’t need them, anyhow? This is all simply applying a Fascist doomsday cult belief set to international law.

Meanwhile, this is not a crime in their eyes

Not a cop in sight till after the property damage was done. That they feel they can do this in broad daylight says quite a bit.

    Teach projected: a goodly chunk of Leftists/Warmists hate Jews and Israel

    Connies profess to “love” Israel while hating Jews. Connies profess to “love” America while hating over half of Americans. Connies have a long history of hating religious groups except connie protestant sects (Baptists, Methodists, Pentacostals, evangelicals, charismatics, etc). Teach attacks the Pope for his understanding of global warming. The conservative KKK famously hated the papists!

    Leftists hate Jews and Israel. Leftists profess to love America while hating and wanting to kill half the population if they don’t conform. Leftists have a long history of hating all religions and persecuting Christians at every chance especially Evangelicals. Leftist have a very long history in America of persecuting and enslaving blacks (and others) and the Democrat KKK famously hated Catholics, Jews and everybody else. It was the Protestants who started the Republican Party to stop the Democrat racists from owning slaves. Today the left supports the mass murder of babies, especially black babies. They support the castration of children because they have sex dysphoria.

    I could go on but the evil depth that the former Democrat Party has fallen to is sad for America and deadly for us.

    Why does Elwood hate Whites?
    He’s afraid to say.
    Why does Elwood hate Christians?
    He is afraid og God.
    Why does Elwood hate America?
    Because as a nazi Freedom is his natural enemy.

    Elwood hides his face, his deviant beliefs and his self hate.
