Cullen328 Let's discuss it

Letter to the Editor, NATURE , “Climate Change”, Vol. 360, p. 292;       
SIR – The Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro and the earlier struggle for a  Convention on Climate Change may serve as a reminder that the 1982  Convention on the Law of the Sea has its tenth anniversary on 10 December. It is  not only one of the most comprehensive  and strongest international treaties ever negotiated but the best possible legal means to protect the global climate. But sadly, there has been little interest in  using it for this purpose. For too long, climate has been defined as the average weather and Rio was not able to define it at all. Instead, the Climate Change Convention uses the term ‘climate system’, defining it as “the totality of the atmosphere, hydrosphere, biosphere and geosphere and their interactions”. All that this boils down to is ‘the interactions of the natural system’. What is the point of a legal term if it explains nothing?  For decades, the real question has  been who is responsible for the climate. Climate should have been defined as ‘the continuation of the oceans by other means’. Thus, the 1982 Convention could long since have been used to  protect the climate. After all, it is the  most powerful tool with which to force  politicians and the community of states into actions.


 Wikipedia is an extreme important and helpful tool, and deserve great support and respect. That requires competent administrators, highest impartiality, impeccable correctness and a good sense of fairness for judging complex matters. That applies also in one of the most controversial issues of modern time, the climate change issue (see WUWT, below), according the

UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon (abc) assumtion that
“Humanity has never faced a greater challenge”.

On the other hand the UN Undersecretary-General Satya N. Nandan (1983-1992)) stated in 1988   (in full HERE) that

“Mr Bernaerts has given to the international community an invaluable guide to the understanding and implementation of the 1982 United Nations Convention on the Law of the Sea.”

It is not up to Mr. Bernaerts to explain to Mr. Cullen328 and Mr. Onel5969  specifically that he regards the 1982 Law of the Sea Convention the most important international legal instrument to organize global actions to understand ocean impact on climate, and protect, at least minimize, man-made climate changes by maritime activities, as he has done so in several books, many dozen articles, uncountable comments and a number of active web-sites, by expressing it as early as 1992 in a Letter to NATURE, which is mentioned in the Biography (full text in left column or at: whatisclimate).

Given the climate change question, Cullen328 and Onel5969 should review their decision, while other persons who are interested in this issue, should make their own judgment.  Coinsider  the whole spectrum,  presented at this site  and discussed  elsewhere.

Cullen328, the author

His most heavily cited
