The United Nations plans to protect water that’s used for bathing; water that’s used for developments; water that’s home to sea life; water that’s used for transportation. So the up-and-coming controls would likely focus on residential limits to water usage, and costly increases to access that water; on bans on agricultural usage, and costly increases on farmers; on strict controls on the types and numbers of ships that can sail the seas and rivers and channels, and costly increases for this form of transportation. … as with carbon offsets, the U.N. water czars will demand trades of activities to offset the supposed pollution of the waterways.
So much for jet skiing. So much for fishing on the weekends with the family. It’ll be too expensive — and regulated.
“Natural resources crises, including for water and food, come within the top 10 biggest risks facing humanity in the coming decade,” the World Economic Forum wrote. … “[A]s global warming continues to take effect, ordinary weather is becoming a thing of the past, exacerbating our water crisis,” the World Economic Forum wrote.
The United Nations is holding its first-in-five-decades conference on water in New York, a gathering that some say could be a “Paris moment” — meaning, the global body could soon do for water what it’s sought to do, via treaty, for climate. Meaning, the United Nations is coming for control of the world’s water sources.
A Paris-like global agreement on water? Make way for the regulatory nightmares.
This conference, hosted by the governments of the Netherlands and Tajikistan, is the latest U.N. quest to accomplish its 17 sustainable development goals, a list that if realized, if fully achieved and enacted, would give a select band of elitist bureaucrats a total control of all human activities, from flying the skies to determining company pay scales to fishing the seas and sailing the oceans and building homes and businesses.
Good health — both physical and mental — for everybody.
And now, clean water and sanitation.
Those are the first few sustainable development goals, a project of the U.N. Department of Economic and Social Affairs.
And while they sound notable, the devil’s in the details. It’s one thing for, say, Christians to offer up aid to the hungry, the tired, the poor via tithes and charitable outreach. It’s one thing for, say, a nonprofit with a charitable mission to supply the needy with much-needed needs. It’s one thing for Joe Q. Taxpayer to reach into his own pocket and proffer some cash for a poor soul in obvious distress.
“[T]he conference aims to raise awareness of the global water crisis and decide on action to achieve internationally agreed water-related goals,” the World Economic Forum wrote in a recent post.
