Resolution GA-03-02

United States, France

 

Understanding that the worldís oil supply is at a shortage, and

 

Believing that the remainder of the oil be globalized and a certain percentage shared, and

 

Noting that oil is a major global and national resource, and

 

Believing that a globalized institution could keep oil from being a war instrument by sharing a percentage of it across the world, and

 

Acknowledging that since this globalized institution is mandated by the U.N. that quells the ability to monopolize the oil industry,

 

Be It Hereby Resolved That:

 

1.      An international institution mandated by the United Nations will conduct and perform the duties of trafficking trade of a percentage of a nationís oil supply.

 

2.      That portion given to this program should not be more than 25% of the nationís oil supply, and the countries participating in this institution shall be by the will and choice of the respective nations.

 

3.      80% - 20% shall be the profit-sharing figure that is negotiable by the nation and the U.N.  (80% profit goes directly to the nation; 20% to the U.N. for humanitarian needs).

 

4.      Each country has the ability to tax and decide upon the drilling methods which are applied within the nation.

 

5.      The receiving nations of oil should be able to receive equal sums of profit due based upon their immediate need for oil.
