Yes, and this is may be rather disquieting. The organisation has 192
member states, but I am having trouble with locating voting stats for TF
460-6. The prime mover for the new UTC definition is the US and if my
senses are not too dulled I would say that the primary reason is money.
Could they buy enough votes to pass their rag as do the Japanese in the
International Whaling Commission?
> Redefining UTC and contingent changes will directly or indirectly impact 7 billion people. Why would the ITU-R seek to "play it" anything other than safe? It is the ITU that will be left holding the bag, none of the other alphabet soup of organizations.
Does anyone have a source for the votes on ITU resolutions?
