ICJ Receives 91 Statements On Whether “Climate Polluting” Nations Must Pay

Obviously, these are pretty much all 2nd and 3rd World nations who are looking for some sweet, sweet, no strings attached moola

International Court Receives 91 Written Statements In Climate Change Opinion

The International Court of Justice has announced that a record high 91 member states and organizations have submitted written statements on its advisory opinion on the Obligations of States in respect of Climate Change. At the request of the United Nations General Assembly, the ICJ will determine the existing financial liability of countries for their contribution to climate change. Parties have until June 24 to submit responses. The Court states that the written statements will not be made public until the beginning of oral arguments. This is the first time the Court has indicated that oral arguments will occur on this opinion.

On March 29, 2023, the UNGA asked the ICJ to issue an advisory opinion on the legal obligations of countries in preventing climate change. The opinion, while non-binding, will give an indicator of how the Court may interpret future climate related litigation and guide future legislative development.

The UN sent an initial package of relevant laws and treaties. The Court determined that members states and international organizations should also be given the opportunity to weigh in on their legal arguments and opinions through written statements.

Last time I check, the UN had no sovereignty over the United States and other 1st World nations, so, they can all go jump in a lake.

It is unknown what international organizations were denied the opportunity to submit written statements, as the Court only announced organizations that were approved. The Court has authorized the African Union; the Alliance of Small Island States (AOSIS); the Commission of Small Island States on Climate Change and International Law; the European Union; the Forum Fisheries Agency (FFA); the International Union for Conservation of Nature; the Melanesian Spearhead Group (MSG); the Organisation of African, Caribbean and Pacific States (OACPS); the Organization of the Petroleum Exporting Countries (OPEC); the Pacific Islands Forum; the Parties to the Nauru Agreement Office (PNAO); and the World Health Organization to participate in the proceedings.

Hmm, they denied some organizations the opportunity to submit statements? Weird, especially since the ICJ is keeping most of this secret. Anyhow, notice that most of these groups, outside the EU, would be attempting to get the US and the other 1st World nations to pony up. And the EU high muckety mucks couldn’t care less how this affects the European peasants.

    Fortunately, the United States is not a member of the International Court of Justice!

    The UN has wanted an independent revenue stream since it was created. It burn them every time the USA reminds them that every time we get a Republican controlled government, we can reduce their take-home pay. They see climate change as their ticket to financial independence from American politicians. You think they are Marxist dictators now? Just wait until they are “sovereign” themselves.
