The environmental movement is trying to take over the world.

Yes, it is. In a proposal that can only make a sane human being exclaim, "Hell no!", the new idea is for an international environmental court that would punish nations that don't protect the environment enough:
Stephen Hockman QC is proposing a body similar to the International Court of Justice in The Hague to be the supreme legal authority on issues regarding the environment.

The first role of the new body would be to enforce international agreements on cutting greenhouse gas emissions set to be agreed next year.

But the court would also fine countries or companies that fail to protect endangered species or degrade the natural environment and enforce the "right to a healthy environment".
Short of appointing a global economic czar -- and giving him the powers of a Romanov Czar -- its hard to imagine a more profound transfer of sovereignity from nation-states to a global governing body. Unfortunately, the proposal gets worse (my emphasis):
As well as providing resolution between states, the court will also be useful for multinational businesses in ensuring environmental laws are kept to in every country.

The court would include a convention on the right to a healthy environment and provide a higher body for individuals or non-governmental organisations to protest against an environmental injustice.
The proposal not only wants to centralize sovereignity in a one-world governing body; it wants to give the radical, Marxist, eco-radical fringe an absolute veto over the global economy. Objectively speaking, this is totally insane.
