Historical Resolution #161
A resolution to repeal previously passed legislation.
Historical Resolution #23 “Replanting Trees” (Category: Environmental; Industry Affected: All Businesses - Strong) shall be struck out and rendered null and void.
The United Nations,
UNDERSTANDING the good environmental intentions of resolution #23, "Replanting Trees,"
EMPHASISING that this repeal is not an attempt to make it easier for companies to deforest trees wantonly,
NOTING that trees are measured by a numbered count and not in acres making the proposal very vague and ineffectual,
FURTHERMORE NOTING that it only states that the responsibility of replanting the trees is held by the person or the enterprise who cut them down and makes no obligation for the individual or the enterprise to ensure that the replanted trees are able to grow and that there is no power to enforce that the trees are able to grow,
CONSIDERING that there may not be ample land to replant the required amount of trees available,
ALSO CONSIDERING that no reason is given as to why the trees should be replanted and that all this resolution achieves is wasting the money of each nation,
NOTING that the resolution makes no allowances for any trees cut prior to the resolution passing,
CONSIDERING that, under this resolution, it is possible to cut down small batches of trees numbering below five acres and not replant, thereby rendering the resolution virtually useless,
STATING that the resolution makes no allowances for different varieties or types of trees grown, thus allowing companies to destroy biodiversity,
NOTING that no allowances are given for the deforested area to recoup in certain nutrients after the deforestation,
DEEMING Resolution #23 to be an ineffectual and inconsiderate resolution which fails to accomplish its goals,
REPEALS Resolution #23: Replanting Trees.
