Destroying Biodiversity

The Soviet Union’s demise ushered in manmade catastrophic global warming as the new “central organizing principle of civilization.” Now, global warming hysteria is giving way to a growing recognition that: climate change is primarily natural, cyclical and moderate; China, India and other poor countries will not sacrifice CO2-generating economic growth on the altar of speculative climate disaster; and carbon taxes strangle competitiveness, destroy jobs and send families into fuel poverty.

The EU habitats directive

Few, have heard of the European Union’s Council Directive on the Conservation of Natural Habitats and of Wild Fauna and Flora and what the aims and obligations of this EU Directive are.

Better known as the Habitats Directive of May 21, 1992, the main aim of the Habitats Directive is to promote the maintenance of biodiversity and to ensure the restoration or maintenance of natural habitats and species, that are important to the EU, at a favourable conservation status. Natural habitats and wild species of flora and fauna are under continuous threat from development and agricultural intensification.

To pursue such an aim, EU member states are obliged to designate special areas of conservation (SACs) so that a coherent European ecological network known as Natura 2000 is created.
