A CONCURRENT RESOLUTION

ENDORSING THE GOALS AND OBJECTIVES OF THE UNITED NATIONS CONFERENCE ON ENVIRONMENT AND DEVELOPMENT (UNCED), OTHERWISE KNOWN AS THE EARTH SUMMIT, SCHEDULED FOR JUNE, 1992, IN BRAZIL, AND CALLING UPON THE PRESIDENT OF THE UNITED STATES TO JOIN HIS COUNTERPARTS FROM AROUND THE WORLD AT THE EARTH SUMMIT AND TO INSTRUCT UNITED STATES NEGOTIATORS TO WORK WITH OTHER NATIONAL DELEGATIONS IN CRAFTING AN INTERNATIONAL PROTOCOL ON GLOBAL CLIMATE CHANGE.

Whereas, public concern about protecting the global environment continues to grow as evidence mounts of the long-term damage being done to the Earth by global climate change, toxic waste, freshwater and ocean pollution, and loss of biological diversity; and

Whereas, environmental problems are inextricably linked with economic and trade policies; and

Whereas, states have many critical responsibilities with respect to supporting responsible economic development as well as for environmental protection and natural resource management, including land-use planning, transportation, solid and hazardous waste management, and procurement policies; and

Whereas, the General Assembly of this State has also supported national initiatives which enable states to develop and implement successful economic development and environmental protection programs; and

Whereas, the General Assembly of South Carolina recognizes that problems such as global climate change, diminishing biological diversity, and ocean pollution can only be solved with cooperation at all levels of government from the local to the international; and

Whereas, in June of 1992, the world's leaders will gather in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, for the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED), otherwise known as the Earth Summit, to define new and bold steps to achieve solutions to the planet's environmental and economic development problems; and

Whereas, the Earth Summit will pay special attention to concerns regarding global climate change, toxic waste, diminishing biological diversity, and ocean and freshwater resources. Now, therefore,

Be it resolved by the House of Representatives, the Senate concurring:

That the General Assembly of the State of South Carolina, by this resolution, endorses the goals and objectives of the Earth Summit, particularly with respect to the creation and adoption of global agreements which will result in policies and mechanisms to protect the global environment and enhance the ability of nations to develop equitably their natural and human resources.

Be it further resolved that the General Assembly of this State calls upon the President of the United States to join his counterparts from around the world at the Earth Summit and to instruct United States negotiators to work with other national delegations in crafting an international protocol on global climate change that would reduce this nation's emissions of carbon dioxide by twenty percent by the year 2000 and thus reestablish the role of the United States as a leader in managing the planet's resources for present and future generations.

Be it further resolved that copies of this resolution be forwarded to the President of the United States, the President of the United States Senate, and the Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, all at Washington, D.C., and to the United States Ambassador to the United Nations, at the United Nations, New York City.
