I’ve just learned that John Bolton is meeting with conservative senators, urging them to oppose the Law of the Sea. A Senate Foreign Relations Committee hearing on the convention is scheduled for Thursday.
This is a wake-up call to progressives, moderates, and old-school conservatives: joining the Law of the Sea is absolutely critical to restoring the American tradition of responsible, multilateral global engagement. If you haven’t done it yet, call your senators today.
If any TWN readers are real gluttons for punishment and want to study the Law of the Sea in great, great, great detail, download the 124-page briefing book here. Otherwise, see past posts here and here.
I wonder if Bolton’s recent activity is more damaging to Bolton or to the Convention. Either way, I’m not too worried.
