Sen. Jim DeMint (R-SC) warned on Tuesday that the Obama administration is working quietly with the United Nations to ratify the Law of the Sea Treaty (LOST), an international agreement that would force the U.S. to abide by foreign climate regulations.
Not familiar with the Law of the Sea? Here’s a brief refresher:
“Although the treaty is meant to establish a set of rules regarding the oceans, only a few pages of it deal with purely navigational concerns,” longtime LOST opponent Sen. DeMint notes.
“The bulk of the 288-page treaty does things like establish a new international bureaucracy in Jamaica to collect and redistribute royalties on offshore oil drilling and force the United States into international arbitration for environmental disputes,” he adds.
If ratified, LOST would compel states to “adopt laws and regulations” to “implement applicable international rules and standards established through competent international organizations or diplomatic conference to prevent, reduce and control pollution of the marine environment from land-based sources.”
