Claim: China Weaponising UN Protection For Australia’s Great Barrier Reef

Great Barrier Reef

China’s ongoing effort to punish Australia for opposing their South China Sea territorial ambitions has now allegedly extended to stacking the UN Heritage Committee.

A secret push by China to have Australia’s Great Barrier Reef declared ‘in danger’ could cripple the Far North’s multi-billion dollar tourist economy and affect over 64,000 local jobs.

Beijing has been plotting with a China-chaired United Nations committee to have the environmental health status of the world-renowned coral reef downgraded, in a blatant effort to bypass the normal channels of the World Heritage Committee.

This has happened without proper scientific scrutiny or consolation, it is claimed, with any downgrading likely to threaten tourism and jobs. 

The ploy took Australian government officials by surprise, who first learned about the clandestine scheme on Friday, The Australian reported.…

This alleged abuse obviously has wider implications. If the United Nations ever receives greater powers to police global CO2 emissions, or if there are any other transfers of sovereignty to the United Nations, I think we now have a good indication of who will wield those new UN powers.
