Towards a Global Green Constitution

A flood of other materials came into my possession in 1995, much of it circling around environmentalism as a paradigm changer.

One was the report from the 1990 World Environment Energy and Economic Conference (WEEEC), also known as World ‘90. Sponsored by the Government of Manitoba, UNESCO,[29] and the International Council of Associations for Science Education, the theme for this event was telling; “Sustainable Development Strategies and the New World Order.”[30]

Over 3000 delegates and high-level representatives from around the world attended to flesh out economic, management, and educational themes in relationship to sustainable development. The purpose? To finalize an official Manitoba protocol on the environment and thus influence the then upcoming United Nations Rio Earth Summit, and to identify curriculum goals and teaching strategies for proper global citizenship, which would be forwarded to the UNESCO 2000+ project.

The title of the final report mirrored the conference theme, Sustainable Development for a New World Agenda. Chapter two chilled me: “Towards A Global Green Constitution.”

“The issues are not about if a global politics is necessary. The question is how do we achieve binding agreements in Law complete with effective pro- grams for applying sanctions against non-compliance that would oblige each nation, regardless of size, to abide by a set of principles that are required to guarantee the survival of life on this earth. Perhaps we will find that there is no other alternative to a system of rigid controls that some would equate to a police state. Unfortunately, in order to save the planet from biocide, there have to be very powerful constraints from doing the ‘wrong’ things. The constraints must transcend national boundaries, be world-around and enforceable…”[31]

A globally accepted enforcement agency, the chapter explained, “would need the power to act without being invited by the offending nation.” Non-compliance would invite sanctions, but “if sanctions do not work, then physical occupation and the installation of a World Trusteeship would be imposed upon the offending nations.”

The heart of Chapter 2 was the idea of a “Global Green Constitution,” an ethical and legal contract for global citizenship; “The Constitution would need to be the world- around political expression of a radical new value system; values that ensure a sustainable society…”[32]

Under the subheading of “Social Justice,” it was explained that this new ethic would enshrine the “principle of global economic equality” through a system of “Energy Ac- counting” with engineered, predetermined amounts of energy allocated to each human being. Resources such as oil have peaked, it was said, and an innovative green ac- counting system was needed for the planet – roughly paralleling what the Technocracy movement from the 1930s advocated.[33] Moreover, if we want to make this architecture of “Social Justice” efficient and feasible, then a “global policy of one child per family” would have to be implemented.[34]

Protecting the planet was paramount; dehumanized wilderness zones would have to be established, after all, “it is the human population that needs management, not wildlife.”[35] And tolerance, according to this section of the WEEEC report, would be imposed as a “Human Right,”

“Popular or not, green governments will oppose any culture if it proves to be prejudicial by reasons of gender, age, colour, race, religion, belief, sexual orientation, mental or physical condition, marital status, family composition, source of income, political belief, nationality, language preference, or place of origin.”[36]

It was suggested that this Global Green Constitution would be signed by nation states and the United Nations, with the UN given management powers over “the global commons” – oceans and offshore fisheries, sea mounts, and trans-boundary fresh water, the atmosphere, and space.

Chapter 2 also placed a heavy emphasis on educating children.

“A massive and persuasive educational effort is required to develop a global perspective among the people of each nation state. Each nation’s degree of dedication to educating the people would be the first indication of green government.”[37]

Other parts of the report echoed the importance of education; “Curriculum needs to emphasize values education, incorporating – on a need to know basis – knowledge, conceptual learning and skills.”

The task of educators would thus have to be re-configured; “The role of the teacher will inevitably have to change. They will become more involved in facilitating changes of attitudes and guiding students to gain values…”[38]

Here at the WEEEC was an introduction to the concept of One World. It was the by-product of a Oneness worldview, fashioned as a coercive-styled global government operating under the pretext of stemming a planetary environmental breakdown, complete with a Technocracy-oriented green-energy economic order, wealth redistribution in the name of Social Justice,[39] enforced political correctness under the guise of “human rights,” and the modification of beliefs and values to fit this New Age.
