UN Agenda 21: Environmental Piracy
...It was not until 1992, after numerous United Nations conferences around the globe spanning decades and a concerted effort by third world governments led by individuals like Maurice Strong and Gro Harlem Brundtland that the UN Agenda 21 became reality at the UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) in 1992 in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
This conference produced three documents: The United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (an international treaty), the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (an international treaty), and UN Agenda 21 (not a treaty but a “soft law”).
President Herbert Walker Bush signed along with 178 countries but refused to sign the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity because it required transfer of technology without recognition of proprietary rights. However, President Bush said, “It is the sacred principles enshrined in the UN Charter to which the American people will henceforth pledge their allegiance.” I am sure the American people were very surprised or perhaps totally unaware that a U.S. President would pledge allegiance to a foreign body instead of the U.S. Constitution.
UN Agenda 21 is a “soft law” document, not ratified by Congress. Parts of it have been incorporated into other laws passed because Congressmen do not read the bills they pass or do not understand the full scope of the UN Agenda 21. The 40-chapter document limits the behavior and freedoms of individuals and firms, involving every facet of human life.
A video dated October 2, 1992 and taken from C-SPAN archives shows discussions on the House floor about Agenda 21 in which both Democrats and Republicans are in favor of conforming fully to the recommendations of UN Agenda 21 in spite of the oath they took to defend the U.S. Constitution and the sovereignty of our country. A much younger and stuttering Nancy Pelosi introduced a bill to follow the 1992 Rio Earth Summit to conform to UN Agenda 21, its local sustainable community practices, and to follow international law.
UN Agenda 21 makes suggestions and recommendations that are adapted into law at the state and local levels through comprehensive land use plans which are voted on and included by the board of supervisors into local zoning codes. Citizens do not understand its damaging ramifications to their private property, the ability to make a living, to use their land, grow food in their gardens, sell their produce freely, and engage in agriculture. Local land owners do not have the opportunity to provide their input into the decision-making process, they are at the mercy of “visioning committees” and the board of supervisors, often plants or paid subscribers to the One World Government’s UN Agenda 21 document.
UN Agenda 21 goals include but are not limited to:
Redistribution of population according to resources
Government control of land use in order to achieve equitable distribution of resources
Land use control through zoning and planning
Government control of excessive profits from land use
Urban and rural land control through public land ownership
Developing rights must be held by public authorities via “regionalist” authorities
President Bill Clinton facilitated President Herbert Walker Bush’s initial commitment by signing an executive order which created the President’s Council on Sustainable Development to translate UN Agenda 21 into U.S. public policy under the guise of ecosystem management.
One World Governance in the name of protecting the environment, racial justice, and social justice/equity is a communist system that redistributes wealth and promotes universal health care as a human right.
Harvey Rubin, the Vice Chair of ICLEI, proclaimed his vision of a communistic sustainable world in which “Individual rights must take a back seat to the collective.”
One World Governance will control:
Energy production, delivery, distribution, and consumption via Smart Grid, Smart Meters, and Renewable/Clean/Green resources
Food growth and production via FDA regulations, and Codex Alimentarius
Education control via a curriculum centered on environment and Mother Earth and global citizenship (i.e., No Child Left Inside Act in Maryland)
Water through irrigation denial in agriculture, home use, recreation activities; destruction of dams and reservoirs; abolishing hydroelectric generation use of water as a contributor to the now discredited theory that greenhouse gases cause global warming
Land control through abolishing of private property
Finances (one world currency to replace the U.S. dollar as the world’s reserve currency)
De-population (restructuring the family unit and reducing population to “manageable levels” through sterilization and eugenics)
No borders/no sovereignty
No national language and culture (a multi-cultural hodgepodge devoid of a nation’s history, and shameless promotion of global citizenship)
Mobility restriction to 5 minutes-walk/bike from work, school, shopping
Longer distance travel through rail use
Homestead by stacking people in high-rise tenements in order to designate formerly privately owned land for wildlife habitat
The One World Governance of the UN Agenda 21 requires that every societal decision be based on the environmental impact on global land use, global education, and global population control and reduction. They have deemed “not sustainable” most human activities that form our modern civilization: private property, fossil fuels, consumerism, farming, irrigation, commercial agriculture, pesticides, herbicides, farmlands, grazing of livestock, paved roads, golf courses, ski lodges, logging, dams, reservoirs, fences, power lines, suburban living, and the family unit.
“Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class – involving high meat intake, use of fossil fuels, appliances, home and work air conditioning, and suburban housing are not sustainable.” (Maurice Strong, Secretary General of the UN’s Earth Summit, 1992)
“We must make this place an insecure and inhospitable place for Capitalists and their projects – we must reclaim the roads and plowed lands, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of tens of millions of acres of presently settled land.” (Dave Foreman, Earth First)
Public Private Partnerships and ICLEI have enabled the spread and encroachment of UN Agenda 21. Public Private Partnerships, programs between the federal government and non-governmental organizations (NGOs), have implemented with tax dollars Sustainable Development policies at the local level such as Smart Growth, Green Growth, Green Building Codes, Going Green, and many others.
The International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) now called Local Governments for Sustainability has channeled grants with the help of the American Planning Association to the municipalities around the country. These grants were badly needed by struggling communities and came with strings attached such as “visioning consensus,” the vision of a third, unelected government tier coming from the United Nations and non-profit foundations who promote the interest of wild animals over those of humans.
There is never a shortage of new converts – the educational system is deliberately dumbing down our students in order to accept the Sustainable Development goals. “Generally, more highly educated people, who have higher incomes, consume more resources than poorly educated people, who tend to have lower incomes. In this case, more education increases the threat to sustainability.”
In some states, the curriculum includes “constructivism,” a teaching method by which “students construct [their own] understandings of reality and [realize] that objective reality is not knowable.”
“The aim of education is the knowledge not of facts but of values.” Whose values will educate our children? Will it be the atheist, Gaia-centric values of government indoctrination?
The New World Order teachers recommend Connected Mathematics because “Mathematics is man-made, is arbitrary, and good solutions are arrived at by consensus among those who are considered expert.” With the right consensus of experts, two plus two may not be four but five.
“The curriculum does not emphasize arithmetic and some students may not do well on tests assessing computational skills… We believe such a trade-off in favor of Connected Mathematics is very much to students’ advantage in… the world of work.”
According to the late Henry Lamb, UNESCO, another tentacle of the United Nations, had taught seminars to teachers and disseminated curriculum materials that promoted the idea that nationalism was bad and had to be replaced with global citizenship. The textbooks of the International Baccalaureate plant the seeds of prejudice against national pride and support the idea that world/global citizenship and world governance are viable solutions to the future of a socially, racially, and economically unjust planet.
As I described in my essays the countless places where I had encountered Sustainable Development, I came to the realization that, because United Nations Agenda 21 is so insidious and so much part of every facet of our society, it will take a miracle to dismantle it.

Agenda 21 like a dragon made of mist with many heads. It is very hard to keep tract of what local, county, state, and federal regulations and laws are influenced by it, or are in-line with it.
We fight it in the places where I do business daily, and most of the time I am discouraged by the results of our efforts.
Abolish the UN!

Bill Gates has called for the same thing.
[10 Years Ago] Sustainable development conference speaker called for 90% reduction in world population
April 8, 2015 (LifeSiteNews.com) - The article published below will help new LifeSite readers better understand some of the seemingly mad trends of today.
In 1995, now Editor-in-Chief of LifeSite, John-Henry Westen, wrote this report on the 1995 State of the World Forum in San Francisco that was hosted by former Soviet premier Mikhail Gorbachev and attended by many of the world's elite. The theme of the conference was "sustainable development".
Comments from a number of the speakers, but especially those from the closing plenary session speaker, philosopher/author Sam Keen, are very revealing about many disturbing trends we see in full force today.
This really did happen. The quotes are genuine. Read on and then relate to today and many items reported on LifeSite in recent weeks and months and years. The last quote and line in the article is especially alarming. One has to wonder if some of the world's elites are indeed working to fulfill that goal. I would not brush it off as ridiculous fiction.
World’s elite gather to talk depopulation
By John-Henry Westen, September, 1995
San Francisco gathering draws all the big names from the world of politics, media, business and entertainment
A few months ago in late September 1995 a group of stellar performers from the world stage got together in San Francisco to discuss the future of the planet.
The “State of the World Forum” was convened by Mikhail Gorbachev, along with co-chairs President Askar Akaev of Kyrgystan, former President of Costa Rica Oscar Arias, former U.S, Secretary of State James A. Baker III, Prime Minister Tansu Ciller of Turkey, former Dutch Prime Minister Ruud Lubbers and Nobel Laureate Rigoberta Menchu.
Over 400 of the rich and famous attended the gala affair which lasted 5 days and cost a whopping $5,000.00 per person. Political notaries included former U.S Secretary of State George Shultz, former U.S, President George Bush, former British Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, Czech Republic President Vaclav Havel, South African Vice President Thabo Mbeki, and even our own former Canadian Prime Minister Brian Mulroney.
The media representatives included such big names as newspaper mogul Rupert Murdoch, anchorman Ted Koppel and cable-TV billionaire Ted Turner.
Big names in big business also attended the affair including Men’s Wearhouse CEO George Zimmer, Archer Daniels Midland CEO Dwayne Andreas, Microsoft wizard Bill Gates, and computer tycoon David Packard.
The main theme of the forum was “sustainable development,” understood by many to be a long-standing euphemism for population control.
The obtrusive promotion of the culture of death began the conference as former “Humanist of the Year” Ted Turner addressed the audience. Given only five minutes for his opening address, Turner couldn’t refrain from blurting out population control slogans in his outspoken style: “But by ending the cold war, and reducing dramatically the threat of nuclear annihilation, we now have the chance to starve to death in a desert. We have given ourselves that opportunity, and it seems that is more difficult to deal with because it requires more forethought, and the benefits of ending the cold war were perfectly clear to everybody. The population problem and the environmental destruction that is going in the world, and will eventually lead to our demise, if it is not reversed, is much harder to see because it happens over a longer period of time.”
When Gorbachev spoke, after being lauded by former Secretary of state George Shultz, he candidly revealed the purpose of the conference: “We have, I believe, to gear consumption to people’s cultural and spiritual needs also through culture and education and within the framework of laws, we shall have to address the problem of controlling the world’s population.
Amid other topics such as global governance, global security, and the information highway, the theme of population control continued. However, no where was the theme more evident than in the discussions around religion. Not surprisingly a conglomeration of Buddhists, Wiccans, dissident “Catholic” theologians, and New Age Spiritualist permeated the conference.
These included Fritjof Capra, Jeremy Rifkin, Willis Harman, Deepak Chopra, Robert Muller, Matthew Fox, Carl Sagan, and Shirley MacLaine. These types had mainly Christianity to blame for the so-called world population dilemma.
In the closing plenary session of the forum, philosopher/author Sam Keen provided a summary and conclusive remarks on the conference. Among the conference participants, said Keen, “there was very strong agreement that religious institutions have to take primary responsibility for the population explosion. We must speak far more clearly about sexuality, about contraception, about abortion, about the values that control the population, because the ecological crisis, in short, is the population crisis.
“Cut the population by 90 percent and there aren’t enough people left to do a great deal of ecological damage", said Keen.
