Enviro-whackism Uber Alles?

It seems that they want a world court to deal with "environmental injustices."
Gordon Brown, the Prime Minister, has agreed the concept of an international court will be taken into account when considering how to make these international agreements on climate change binding. The court is also backed by a number of MPs, climate change experts and public figures including the actress Judi Dench.

[Whenever I want some hard scientific facts to back up my arguments, I naturally turn to Judi Dench--don't you?? --ed].

Mr Hockman said an international court will be needed to enforce and regulate any agreement.

"The time is now ripe to set this up and get it going," he said. "Its remit will be overall climate change and the need for better regulation of carbon emissions but at the same time the implementation and enforcement of international environmental agreements and instruments."

According to the piece, the court may very likely be staffed by the high priest of the Church of Global warming himself:
The court would be led by retired judges, climate change experts and public figures. It would include a scientific body to consider evidence and provide access to any data on the environment.
Hmmm... I wonder if their court will look something like this:

I'll tell you one thing, if these socialist pea brained whackos do hold a world court for "crimes against the environment," perhaps they should feature themselves as their first defendants:
Staging a global forum on climate change is a dilemma, as it adds to the very problem it is trying to solve.

Around 13,000 tonnes of carbon dioxide (CO2) will be added to the Earth's greenhouse effect from the December 1-12 meeting of the UN Framework Convention on Climate Change, the UNFCCC said.
Heh. Yet another case of "Do as I say, not as I do!"
