Global Greens, Global Governance

Institute of Economic Affairs
$19.95 Paper Original
Over the course of the last 15 years, environmental organizations have become increasingly obsessed with "global" environmental issues such as climate change, ozone depletion and biodiversity loss. In response to lobbying by these organizations, governments around the world have signed many international treaties with a trend to cede power in environmental matters to the United Nations. Given that a few organizations accredited within the UN as Non Governmental Organizations have quite a bit of sway on the matter, this book suggests that the resultant global governance will be undemocratic and policies will be based on dogma rather than sound science.
