ABSTRACT
The author reflects on the plan of the administration of U.S. President George W. Bush to bring back the Law of the Sea Treaty which establishes an International Seabed Authority to oversee deep-sea mining and other activities. He looks at the issues raised against the treaty and discusses its implication on the country. The author believes that the effort to bring back the Treaty will just be eventually killed off for lack of support.
