2.2.7 Giving Up Sovereignty to Pooled Control
by Multinational Agreements

 

ATI #21, Q22. Here is a proposal that some people say would allow the UN to do a better job, and I want you to tell me whether you favor or oppose it.

In order to protect and preserve the world’s environment, United Nations resolutions on polluting the atmosphere and dumping toxic wastes in the ocean should have the FORCE OF LAW and rule over the actions and laws of individual countries with weaker environmental laws, even the laws of the United States when our environmental protection laws are weaker.
