Repeal "Ban Single-Hulled Tankers"
A proposal to repeal a previously passed resolution


Category: Repeal
Resolution: #11
Proposed by: Jey

Description: UN Resolution #11: Ban Single-Hulled Tankers (Category: Environmental; Industry Affected: All Businesses) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.

Argument: The General Assembly of the United Nations,

APPLAUDING the attempts of Resolution #11: "Ban Single-Hulled Tankers" to prevent serious environmental damages involving oil tanker ships;

NOTING WITH REGRET that Resolution #11 makes no legislative effort to actually prevent the oil spills referenced to, only providing the rhetoric that the United Nations "must unite to ban single-hulled tankers and endorse the use of double-hulled tankers";

CONVINCED that serious environmental issues such as oil spills should be addressed by the United Nations with legislation that contains actionable language to fulfill its intent;

UNDERSTANDING that it is in the interests of the United Nations to eliminate legislation that contains nothing more than rhetoric;

BELIEVING that more comprehensive and effective legislation can and should be enacted to eliminate serious environmental hazards;

REPEALS Resolution #11: "Ban Single-Hulled Tankers."

Votes For: 297

Votes Against: 43

[Delegate Votes]

Voting Ends: Sun Mar 30 2008

I had a quick look at the original resolution, and I noticed that to support its case, it makes reference to a damaged tanker off the coast of Spain. Now, try as I might, I can't find any nations named 'Spain' anywhere on Nationstates. Using a fictional country to make a claim is just plain silly, so I'm saying REPEAL AWAAAAAAAAY!!!!

Gentlemen, we can repeal it, we have the technology. We have the capability to make this resolution useful; better than it was before. Better. Stronger. Faster.
