What if the environmentalists organize and create a world-wide movement through the United Nations (U.N.) and recruit local governments to assist them? In order to construct bio-diverse, machine-hostile, and eco-balanced neighborhoods they deem it necessary to gain global consent of dozens of countries. They wish to pass laws which restrict carbon emissions, urban sprawl, halt the growth of roads, and turn the land back to nature and animals - no matter what. “Impossible,” you say? No, welcome to Agenda 21. When I first heard this, I didn’t believe it, either.
Agenda 21, hiding in plain sight, began at a U.N. conference in Rio de Janiero in 1992, referred to as The Earth Summit. The activists held a follow-up meeting every five years, so, they held one in 1997, 2002, 2007, and one is now planned for June 20-22, 2012, in Rio. It is known as RIO+20. The goal of greening the earth – sustaining the forests by planting trees – sounds wonderful. We all enjoy clean air and fresh water - yes, even conservatives do! Protect the atmosphere, combat poverty, sustain agriculture; all supportable aims. That is, until one performs the requisite research on the Internet (I urge you to Google Agenda 21). The sheer amount of information will astound you, I promise!
The implementation plan for Agenda 21 frightens me. Why? I worry because this doctrine upholds “a wide-ranging blueprint for action to achieve sustainable development worldwide.” It urges governmental and other groups to force social and economic changes required for sustainable development. Agenda 21 depends upon “changing patterns of production and consumption,” and approves of community-based partnerships. Sound familiar? If adopted blindly, without thought or care, this program can lead to restrictive laws which will increase business-killing restrictions, squash progress, and limit freedom for individuals. Activists now petition local governments in the U.S. and fight for the right to turn the prosperity of Western Civilization back into the stone age.
The U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), the U.S. Department of Transportation (DOT), and the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) partner with and donate money to the implementation of Agenda 21 in America! A five-county community near Asheville, North Carolina (NC) recently rejected their local Agenda 21 initiative. Whew, but this might reach your area soon.
I reject conspiracy theories in general, but Agenda 21 strikes me as worthy of much more scrutiny and research. I agree with safeguarding our earth and preserving it for future generations, but resist the method of implementation chosen by the global environmentalists – brute force - with every fiber of my being. How dare they!
My thanks to Amy Mitchell for bringing this to the attention of concerned citizens.
