    Critics say it would put 70% of Earth under control of global bureaucracy

    In a January 1999 speech, Borgese declared, "The world ocean has been, and is, so to speak, our great laboratory for the making of a new world order."

    In an article titled, "The New International Economic Order and the Law of the Sea," she argued that the pact could "reinforce" the goals of the NIEO by giving Third World countries a role in managing access to the oceans.

    Her ideas included recognizing the oceans as the "common heritage of mankind" and creating an International Seabed Authority to charge U.S. and foreign companies for the right to mine the ocean floor.

    Perhaps these folks should put the moon, other planets, our sun, and all galaxy's under UN control, just in case American ingenuity finds a way to mine them.
