Limiting human activity for ‘protection’.
Almost a third of the world’s land and oceans, from peat bogs to coral reefs, are set to be “protected” by the end of the decade under a landmark international treaty for nature.
The deal, agreed at the United Nations’ COP15 Biodiversity Summit in Canada, sets out “four global goals and 23 targets” all designed to “halt and reverse biodiversity loss” by 2030.
Alongside the so-called 30 by 30 goal, the agreement also includes targets for countries to slash subsidies deemed ‘harmful to nature’, such as those supporting ‘unsustainable’ agriculture or fisheries.
The agreement includes a promise that higher-income nations will, by the end of the decade, provide at least $30 billion a year in “biodiversity financing”.
At the close of the meeting, COP15 president Huang Runqiu said the agreement marked a “historic moment” in world efforts to ‘save nature’, calling the deal “a package we can all be proud of”.
Countries have agreed to establish a new mechanism to “share the benefits” of products built using genetic data from the world’s microbes, animals and plants.
Countries also agreed to formally recognise the rights of Indigenous peoples and their role in delivering the 30 by 30 target, a key victory that campaigners said would “help to reduce the risk of governments evicting people from their land to hit the goal”.
“We have taken a great step forward in history today,” Canada’s Environment Minister, Steven Guilbeault, told the assembled delegates.
Researchers have been calling for this type of action heavily since mid-2022.
So what will this really entail?
‘PARIS AGREEMENT FOR NATURE’
Countries have cheered the achievement of the global deal, likening it to nature’s equivalent of a treaty.
“I think we have enough to declare it the Paris Agreement for nature,” says Espen Barth Eide, Norway’s environment minister.
That should tell you all you need to know about the ideology driving this new agreement.
We first covered these calls in June 2022, where an international team of scientists called for more than 40 per cent of Earth’s land surface ‘to be conserved’ in order to ‘protect biodiversity’.
This message was discussed in a comprehensive analysis of animal habitats in the journal, Science.
The researchers found that a total of 64 million square kilometres, or 44 per cent of the Earth’s land surface, needs “to be protected from development” if we are “to halt the current decline in biodiversity”.
But here’s the catch.
The study reads: “The authors emphasize that much of the needed area is occupied by human populations, emphasizing the importance of improving sustainable cohabitation and ecosystem protection in these regions.”
We aren’t talking about ‘protecting’ much of the beautiful, wild environment that is out there — much of which is already listed under marine and heritage listings.
At present, about 70 per cent of the land on Earth is already considered “ecologically intact”, and includes large swathes of habitat in regions like Australia’s remote interior.
No, the areas that need ‘protecting’ are located where humans occupy.
Remember in George Orwell’s Nineteen Eighty-Four when Winston and Julia must gets permits to travel with permission to the restricted country side?
Really makes you think.
Also another thing to note is the fact the UN, in 2019, called for an international “green deal” and overhaul of the world’s financial order to deliver on the Agenda 2030 plan.
First corona lockdowns upheaval the world’s financial and trade systems, and now this deal.
The dreams of the UN are starting to come true! They must be pleased!
All roads ahead to Agenda 2030.
