Something’s Wrong with the USA

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

Anthony Freda Art

By Catherine J. Frompovich

What’s wrong with the USA? Isn’t that a question that elicits more answers than we have time to read about here? But, one of the inevitable answers that I want to feature is this: The USA does NOT recognize an individual’s constitutional right to a healthy environment! Are readers aware of that?

Dr. David R. Boyd, one of Canada’s leading experts in environmental law and policy and an adjunct professor at Simon Fraser University’s School of Resource and Environmental Management, points out that fact—rather significantly—in his 2012 article, “The Constitutional Right to a Healthy Environment” [1] wherein he supplies two graphics of countries around the globe, which recognize that right in their constitutions, but the USA is not one of them! Furthermore, there is no proposed Constitutional Amendment trying to work its way around the country or through the constitutional process of adding that right to the U.S. Constitution/Bill of Rights.

Surprisingly, readers will learn upon studying Dr. Boyd’s graphics that there are some countries that recognize that right in legislation or international agreements as of 2012, but when it comes to a constitutional right, there is a difference.

According to Dr. Boyd, of the 193 United Nations countries, only 94 have constitutions that recognize the right to a healthy environment. However, on the basis of regional treaties, 118 UN member nations recognize that right. How does that apply to weather geoengineering and its toxic chemicals? Then there’s this ‘technicality’: “If one includes the Small Island States, who signed the Malé Declaration of the Human Dimension of Global Climate Change, 90 percent of UN nations (174 out of 193) recognize the right to a healthy environment.” [2]

The United States of America—shame on you—is one of the UN countries that does NOT recognize a constitutional right to a healthy environment, regional treaties or international agreements! Check out both graphics Dr. Boyd supplies in his exceptional article. I wonder why! Could the reason be because many of the U.S. Constitution Bill of Rights currently are being trashed and/or gutted? Or, is the actual reason corporate control of our federal and state regulating agencies – and even legislators – through generous lobbying gifts?

Interestingly, and rather ironically, Russia does grant the right to a healthy environment! I guess that’s the reason why Russia has prohibited GMO ‘phood’, seeds, farming, etc. in that country. [3] According to Russia’s Prime Minister Medvedev, “Moscow has no reason to encourage the production of genetically modified products or import them into the country. If the Americans like to eat GMO products, let them eat it then. We don’t need to do that; we have enough space and opportunities to produce organic foods.” [3]

According to J. Barrows, “Environmental rights and responsibilities have been a cornerstone of indigenous legal systems for millennia” [4, 1]. So, what’s happened relatively recently with all the toxins allowed into the environment, especially in the USA?

Where’s the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, or is it a paper tiger without teeth that costs U.S. taxpayers a big chunk of bureaucratic money? [10]

The same can be said for the U.S. FDA’s and Congress’s handling of giving Big Pharma in 1986 a “get out of jail free” card for allowing them to legally put all sorts of neurotoxins, toxic chemicals, foreign DNA, nanoparticles, etc. into vaccines [9] that are injected into newborns, 2-4-6-month-old infants, toddlers, teens, and adults with absolutely no legal recourse against vaccine makers!

What’s going on with the U.S. Air Force, Navy and private airlines that spray the skies with all kinds of weather geoengineering chemicals [11], including aluminum and, supposedly, coal fly ash [5]?

What’s going on with all the health-damaging electromagnetic frequencies (RFs and EMFs) targeted at everyone from cell phones, Wi-Fi, smart gadgets, and especially Smart Meters being installed – mandatorily by some states like Pennsylvania – that emit “dirty electricity”[8] into homes 24/7/365 and are making people sick?

What’s been going on for over 60 years with putting industrial wastes like fluoride into municipal drinking water [6]?

What’s going on with making certain U.S. citizens must eat genetically-modified ‘phood’ [7], all while the FDA does not permit GMO labeling of such edibles?

What’s going on with all the environmental issues that prevent U.S. citizens from enjoying a healthy life by living without environmental rights, but having to pander to corporate dictates?

Isn’t it about time we wake up, start a grassroots, citizen-action at local, state, federal and congressional levels to demand our rights to a healthy environment, just like 94 other countries enjoy. We need to imitate what the LGBT folks, the blacks and other oppressed individuals have done to secure what they thought were their rights. Why are U.S. citizens so blasé about being poisoned?

Now that we have most of the rights that humans have fought for, let’s not forget the one that just may be the most important.

Can we roll out a Constitutional Right to a Healthy Environment Amendment?
