United Nations: Law of the Rights of ‘Mother Earth’

And you probably thought the world couldn't get any crazier ...
Bolivia has drafted a United Nations treaty giving "Mother Earth" human rights, and also establishes a Ministry of Mother Earth.
That's right. Our favorite big rock hurling through space even gets it's very own ombudsman!
UN document would give 'Mother Earth' same rights as humans
UNITED NATIONS — Bolivia will this month table a draft United Nations treaty giving "Mother Earth" the same rights as humans — having just passed a domestic law that does the same for bugs, trees and all other natural things in the South American country.
The bid aims to have the UN recognize the Earth as a living entity that humans have sought to "dominate and exploit" — to the point that the "well-being and existence of many beings" is now threatened.
That document speaks of the country's natural resources as "blessings," and grants the Earth a series of specific rights that include rights to life, water and clean air; the right to repair livelihoods affected by human activities; and the right to be free from pollution.
It also establishes a Ministry of Mother Earth, and provides the planet with an ombudsman whose job is to hear nature's complaints as voiced by activist and other groups, including the state.
Don't laugh. Remember that the United Nations already has an Office for Outer Space Affairs, complete with a paid physicist in the post of Ambassador to Aliens. I mean, once you're talking to aliens, "rights" for Mother Earth is hardly a stretch.
