Ohio vs. The Gaia Cult

     Throughout the world, including the United States, make places are declaring that “nature” and ecosystems, such as rivers and glaciers. The city of Toledo, Ohio voted to give legal rights to Lake Erie. It turns out the state of Ohio wasn’t having any of that idiocy.

(B) Nature or any ecosystem does not have standing to participate in or bring an action in any court of common pleas.

(C)(1) No person, on behalf of or representing nature or an ecosystem, shall bring an action in any court of common pleas. (2) No person shall bring an action in any court of common pleas against a person who is acting on behalf of or representing nature or an ecosystem. (3) No person, on behalf of or representing nature or an ecosystem, shall intervene in any manner, such as by filing a counterclaim, cross-claim, or third-party complaint, in any action brought in any court of common pleas.

(D) Nothing in this section shall be construed to prevent the state or any of its agencies from enforcing the laws pertaining to environmental pollution, conservation, wild animals, or other natural communities or ecosystems.

     The downside is that just a part of a budget bill, and not a permanent statute. Nonetheless, this is needed pushback to “nature rights” insanity.

    Declaring natural resources “people” to use them as tools to go after your political enemies is dangerous. It’s the entire point of a lot of modern climate legislation.

    Wiser is the path to declare them communal property, and say that the people all have a responsibility to conserve and clean the rivers and lakes… However, you can’t deprive Republican Party representatives from campaign donations doing that. So why would Democrats even bother?
