"In October of 1982 one hundred and eleven member states of the United
Nations signed the UN World Charter for Nature. A few nations did not
vote and some abstained, but only one country voted against this
document: the United States.
Currently, the full document for this charter is unavailable on the
United Nations website. If you follow the link to it, you will just
receive a “404 page not found” message, which I find deeply concerning.
As such I felt to raise awareness of this important document, I would
publish it here.
Read this, then check to see if your country signed it. If they have
done so, then they are bound by treaty to abide by its precepts.
Certainly, it may still need ratifying by your federal government in
order to become law. Nevertheless, you have every right to insist that
When we make important international agreements, particularly ones to do
with our collective well-being, it is important to demonstrate we are a
people of our word, we are a country of integrity. Our nation is one
deserving of the world’s respect."
