HERE YOU WILL FIND CONCLUSIVE EVIDENCE THAT PROVES VENEZUELA'S SOVEREIGNTY IN THE ESQUIBA GUAYANA
THE PEOPLES OF LATIN AMERICA AND THE CARIBBEAN MUST ORGANIZE THEMSELVES TO BE AT THE FOREFRONT IN THE FIGHT AGAINST CLIMATE CHANGE.
Germany is preparing before the end of January the eviction of the village of Lutzerath to extract the coal found in its subsoil. Climate activists are digging trenches and erecting barricades ahead of the announced action of the authorities for the eviction.
This fact is very serious and probably presages the beginning of a brutal growth in the burning of highly polluting fuels such as coal, which considerably increases the emission of greenhouse gases, causing the increase in the planet's temperature and the lethal consequences of climate change.
The fight against climate change and to defend life on Earth requires preventing States from acting irresponsibly in environmental matters. That is why we maintain that the solution for humanity to successfully face the terrible challenge of climate change is political. This will only be possible with the joint action of all the nations of the world, directed and coordinated by a global organization.
Unfortunately, the United Nations, with its current structure, is incapable of assuming this role.
It is imperative to change it before it is too late.
Latin American and Caribbean countries must take a leading role in this task.
But the current political dynamics of the region make this impossible, thanks to the very serious convulsions and political confrontations it has been facing for several decades, a consequence of the inability of the current economic model, based on the export of agricultural and mineral products, reinforced by the mirage of international tourism, to meet the needs of a population that has grown rapidly, from about 150 million inhabitants in the region in the fifties of the last century to the current 650 million.
No country on its own can successfully face the challenge of generating the necessary wealth to bring prosperity to the population.
As long as this problem is not solved and we do not work together, we will continue to experience serious crises of instability, which will make the unity of our peoples impossible.
One element that conspires against this is the stubbornness of some leaders to try to achieve it through entelechies such as the OAS, due to the presence in its midst of the main environmental predatory power, or CELAC, with the chimerical idea of unanimity to undertake actions, which is impossible to put into practice.
Alternative paths must be sought.
The recent summit of the North American countries (Mexico, United States and Canada) can serve as an interesting example in this regard.
In effect, these countries reached agreements in a meeting of presidents that lasted only a few days, on such important issues as migration, drug trafficking, energy, etc. By the way, without taking into account at all the rest of the Latin American and Caribbean countries, neither the OAS nor CELAC, despite the fact that the problems discussed directly affect the rest of the countries of the continent.
This experience should be taken into account and advantage should be taken of the current presence of progressive governments in Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, and Bolivia, as well as any others that may wish to join (which together account for nearly 440 million inhabitants, 70% of the region) to begin to build a functional regional structure with very precise economic, social, and environmental objectives in an expeditious manner.
And when we speak of progressive governments, we are speaking, fundamentally, of the progressive sentiment of the people who elected them, who have, in addition, a very high degree of awareness of what the defense of our Pacha Mama means, a guarantee of the success of such an action.
