9780856835087: Eradicating Ecocide: Exposing the Corporate and Political Practices Destroying the Planet and Proposing the Laws to Eradicate Ecocide
Review:

"A SIMPLE expedient, yet how revolutionary! A global standard of care would reconfigure the entire edifice of international justice on the foundation of Earth Jurisprudence... Eradicating Ecocide brims with hope and reads like a mystery novel." Sierra Club, BC // "... THE BOOK isn't another wild diatribe against business - rather it is an examination of international law and how environmental protection has somehow been left by the wayside ... [It] asks everyone to re-examine the legal framework within which we are attempting to accomplish this, and provides business leaders with a golden opportunity of making it happen." corporate-eye.com // "... LAYS THE framework for us to lobby our leaders for real environmental laws and contains tips on taking action..." The Observer Magazine // "WITHIN the UN framework, the concept behind the sacred trust is to ask for 'community interests to be placed over private and corporate decisions.'" Amelia's Magazine

From the Publisher:

In Eradicating Ecocide, international environment lawyer and Ecocide law expert Polly Higgins sets out to demonstrate how our planet is fast being destroyed by the activities of corporations and governments, facilitated by 'compromise' laws that offer insufficient deterrence. She offers a solution that is radical yet pragmatic and, as she explains, necessary. Starting with the Mexican Gulf oil spill, a compelling reminder of the consequences of un-checked ecocide, Higgins advocates the introduction of an international Ecocide law. As the missing 5th Crime Against Peace it would hold to account heads of corporate bodies who are found guilty of perpetrating ecocide. The opportunity to implement this law represents a crossroads in the fate of humanity; we can accept this one change and in doing so save our ecosystem for future generations, or we can continue to destroy it, risking future brutal war over disappearing natural resources. This is the first book to examine the power of law to change everything. Higgins provides context by presenting examples of laws in other countries and in earlier times in history which have succeeded in curtailing the power of governments, corporations and banks and have triggered change. Eradicating Ecocide is a crash course on what laws work, what doesn't, and what else is required to prevent the ever escalating destruction. Eradicating Ecocide provides a comprehensive overview of what is required in law in order to prevent ecocide. It is a book unlike any other; based on a principle of 'first do no harm', it applies equally to global as well as smaller communities and anyone who is involved in decision-making. The second edition includes amendments and corrections as well as bringing the book up to date.
