(LifeSiteNews) — The socialist president of Brazil has called for “global governance” to enforce climate policies worldwide.
Lula made these remarks in an interview on August 8 during the Amazon Summit in Belém, Brazil, an international climate policy event where representatives of eight countries were present.
The president argued that “global governance” is necessary because decisions on climate policy made at international meetings are not binding on sovereign nation states and local legislative bodies might reject the climate proposals.

Lula said that the reason Brazil is “invested in global governance” is because “if you make a decision here in Belém about the climate issue and there isn’t a commitment to comply, it goes back to the national state, and the congresses don’t always approve and then things don’t work.”
“So, we are going to have global governance,” Lula stated, adding that “The U.N. needs to restructured.”
“The U.N. cannot continue with the same structure it was created with in 1945,” he concluded.
Lula appeared to suggest transforming the United Nations (U.N.) into a global governing body that could introduce binding laws on countries, effectively stripping nations of their sovereignty.

The socialist, pro-abortion Lula became president of Brazil after a highly controversial presidential election in 2022 against conservative Jair Bolsonaro. Millions of people took to the streets and protested for weeks in support of Bolsonaro as severe accusations of election fraud emerged.
Lula previously served as president of Brazil from 2003 until 2010. He was convicted in 2017 of corruption and money laundering, for which he was sentenced to nearly ten years in prison. In 2019, he was found guilty of bribe-related charges in a separate case. However, a 6–5 vote by the Supreme Court allowed him to leave prison later that year. In March 2021, a Supreme Court judge annulled the charges against him. Weeks later, the Court decided that he was free to run in the 2022 election.
