Letter: The lunacy of legal rights for Mother Earth
Did you know that you might get sued in a court of law by a pile of dirt because you disturbed it? Have I lost my mind? No, not me. But I could argue that those who propose it have.
The movers and shakers in the environmentalist "Greenies" have as their goal to give legal standing to "Mother Earth" so just that can happen.
Don’t take my word for it. From their own words: "Join a global campaign to create a worldwide, grassroots movement calling forth the universal acceptance of Right of Nature." And, "the worldwide acceptance and implementation of the Universal Declaration of The Rights of Mother Earth." Go to http://www.rightsofmotherearth.com for more information.
The many projections and assertions of the Global Warming/Climate Change promoters have been disproved by reliable scientists time and again. But the audacity of the Agenda 21 advocates know no bounds. Now they are calling for thousands of letters to heads of state in support of giving "Mother Earth" legal standing so objects in nature have the same property rights as you or I.
Is it not enough that we have local boards of supervisors and local authorities intent on taking away our property rights? And the Middle Peninsula Planning District Commission. And the state of Virginia, the federal government and its many agencies and the United Nations. Now we also have to contend with Mother Earth!
