København: Saving the Planet or Stealing our Sovereignty?

Lord Christopher Monckton gave a presentation in St. Paul, MNO on October 14. The subjects of his talk were global warming, the proposed/coming "Copenhagen Treaty" and U.S. sovereignty. In this 4-minute excerpt from his speech, he warns Americans that the United Nations Climate Change Treaty, scheduled to be signed in Copenhagen in December, will subject the U.S. to external rule.

Lord Christopher Monckton explains climatology.

A couple of key excerpts of concern:

  • Page 18: Section 38 of the "Share vision for long-term cooperation action plan" contains the text for forming the new government.
  • Page 44-45: Section 46 "Objectives, scope, and guiding principles" contains the text for enforcement and establishment of the rule of law.

These folks are deciding your future...for you.

For what it’s worth, there has been considerable debate raised about Monckton's conclusion that the Copenhagen Treaty would cede U.S. sovereignty. His comments appear to be based upon his interpretation of the The Supremacy Clause in the U.S .Constitution (Article VI, paragraph 2). This clause establishes the Constitution, Federal Statutes, and U.S. treaties as the supreme law of the land. Concerns have been raised in the past that a particularly ambitious treaty may supersede the U.S. Constitution. In the 1950s, an amendment, known as the Bricker Amendment, was proposed in response to such fears, but it failed to pass.

Monckton served as a policy adviser to Margaret Thatcher. He has repeatedly challenged former Vice President and Nobel Laureate Al Gore to a debate to which Gore has refused. Monckton sued to stop Gore's film "An Inconvenient Truth" from being shown in British schools due to its inaccuracies. The judge found in-favor of Monckton, ordering nice serious errors in the film to be corrected. Monckton travels internationally in an attempt to educating the public about global warming.
