US Breaches Human Rights on Emissions


The Inuit community of Northern Canada have presented a case before the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights claiming that the USA has contributed so much to climate change that it has violated their human rights.

An Inuit activist and spokesperson said that global warming is "destroying the right [of the Inuit] to life, health property and means of subsistence" adding that "States that do not recognise these impacts and take action violate our human rights."

A UN report last month stated that that "average Arctic temperatures increased at almost twice the global average rate in the past 100 years".

ASSESS this news: BLOCK this news. Reason:
Haven't scientists already admitted this? And why aren't they taking this case to China and Russia as well?

  Question about title..  
Is that title really appropriate? It's a case to be presented and US has not been found to be in breach, yet. No offence Hugo, but I think that's a tad on the sensationalized (or at least inaccurate) side.

How about because the U.S. is the largest contributor in the world to rapid climate change?

  yeah starshadow  
I realised that after posting it needs " " like the source....

The amazing thing is when you put the words "US" and "human rights" in a title together it seems to pull in more interest than say North Korea stopping its nuke programme ...........or something of greater importance, maybe it's because its Saturday .

  @ Hugo Chavez  
"....maybe it's because its Saturday....."

Nah, I've always seen that thought as being because the US has always (supposedly) held itself to higher standards of rights and such, so when these rights are tested, it becomes prominent.

Sadly, it seems that entities holding themselves as being above others, are the first to fail at the task in question.

Damn, did that make any sense? Are you sure it isn't Monday? lol

  What, human rights breach?  
the only protection the US holds is within the borders of the US and to the current generation of voters.

If you're outside of this great nation your on your own and if you're of the future generations then you're also in the back of the line. So put on some waders and hold onto something because expect your going to get shit on for the short term beneficial policies that preserve our glorious way life for the now generation.

I'm glad I'm here now and not being born 50 years from now. What a bunch of suckers!

  I just  
posted a news on this issue too. U.S. gas emissions will increase by 11% in the next ten years. How can this possibly not affect the temperatures?
