General Assembly: Repeal "Renewable Research Commitment"

Recommended Posts

GENERAL ASSEMBLY RESOLUTION AT VOTE

Repeal "Renewable Research Commitment"
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.

Category: Repeal
Resolution: GA#18
Proposed by: Alchemic Queendom

Description: WA General Assembly Resolution #182: Renewable Research Commitment (Category: Environmental; Industry Affected: All Businesses) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: The World Assembly,

 

Supporting the general principle of developing sustainable energy sources,

 

However:

 

Taking issue with World Assembly Resolution #182, “Renewable Research Commitment”, which:
 

  • Requires each individual nation in the WA to separately research renewable energy sources, creating the probability of overlaps and conflicts,
  • Ignores the potential for collaboration among nations to allow for specialisation of research interests,
  • Fails to recognise that advances made in one nation and shared to other nations, through trade, mutual assistance, or other forms of partnership, may be of significant value to the world community,
  • Suggests an arbitrary “5%” commitment from fossil-fuel power plants with no indication of how this number was arrived at or whether it will be sufficient to produce meaningful results,
  • Appears to disregard environmental science in favour of bland political platitudes of little substance,
  • Takes no account of issues relating to sustainable energy development, such as grid modernisation or energy conservation,
  • Permits nations to completely disregard renewable energy research regardless of any advances made,
  • Places absolutely no requirements on nations to implement any renewable energy research measures whatsoever,

 
And further:

Acknowledging that this resolution prevents the World Assembly passing meaningful legislation on sustainable energy,

Believing that this impediment to world cooperation in sustainable energy research and development should be removed,

Hereby:
Repeals World Assembly Resolution #182, “Renewable Research Commitment”.
 

Voting Ends: in 3 days 10 hours
