The Law of the Sea Treaty or L.O.S.T. will introduce international legal complications to the US Navy regarding national security missions. The treaty includes no provision against ships transporting WMD or terrorists to rouge states. It will also complicate deep sea mining, offshore fishing, and would require the US to give the UN Seabed Authority half of ourroyalties from offshore mining and oil drilling. A legal framework would also be created to reduce “thermal pollution” of the oceans. New international bureaucracies would be created to interpret and apply a wide range of rules for the sea, and proceed with those rules despite objections by the United States.
This treaty will create a backdoor to cap and trade and threatens our American economy, homeland security, and power as a nation. IT MUST BE STOPPED. Please sign this petition and contact your representative an express your opinion.
PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION WITH US. WE HAVE SET A GOAL OF 20,000 SIGNATURES. SPREAD THE WORD AGAINST L.O.S.T.
