Ecocide Act–the next step toward international environmental protection? « Public Health Perspectives

From the blog item by Allison Marron

I recently came across another WordPress blog which covered the concept of ecocide, a movement that would make environmental destruction a crime recognized  at the international level. Although I’m unsure of how this would be enforced, how well this could be enforced,  or how much of a priority this would be to counties compared to other international crimes (such as genocide), I think it’s an incredibly interesting and worthy concept for environmental health. Perhaps this is something that could be successful with a grassroots effort (one example being the grassroots campaign Eradicating Ecocide), or legislation starting at the state and country level before it gains support at the international level. Read the original WordPress blog post here.
