Agenda 21 was formally announced by the United Nations at the 1992 Rio summit on the environment. It has been the operating agenda for world economic control ever since.
The USA never ratified the Kyoto Accord. Officially, the government does not hold to the land-use planning program of Agenda 21. But this is a cover. It is being implemented by the Environmental Protection Agency, an organization never voted for by Congress. Nixon created it with an executive order.
The states and counties have begun to resist. But the EPA is the main ramrod agency. The key word is sustainability.
The EPA paid the National Academy of Sciences $700,000 to produce a report, Sustainability and the U.S. EPA. also known as the “Green Book.”Here are a few excerpts.
“The [UN’s World Commission on Environment and Development] called upon the UN General Assembly to transform its  report into a global action plan for sustainable development. The nations of the world did precisely that at the 1992 UN Conference on Environment and Development, or ‘Earth Summit,’ in Rio de Janeiro. These nations, including the United States, endorsed a global sustainable development action plan, known as Agenda 21, and a set of 27 principles for sustainable-development, called the Rio Declaration. Together, these agreements modify the definition of development by adding a third pillar — environmental protection and restoration — to the economic and social pillars of development.”
“First, the committee recommends that EPA formally adopt as its sustainability paradigm the ‘Three Pillars’ approach of ‘Social,’ ‘Environment,’ and ‘Economic’ dimensions of sustainability.”
“Sustainability impact assessment is used to analyze the probable effects of a particular project or proposal on the social, environmental, and economic pillars of sustainability.”
What would this mean for you and me? Poverty.
Maurice Strong, who was the Secretary-General of the UN Earth Summit in Rio in 1992, announced this in his opening speech to the attendees: “Current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class — involving high meat intake, the use of fossil fuels, electrical appliances, home and work-place air-conditioning, and suburban housing — are not sustainable.”
The UN is a democracy. There are mostly poor nations in its voting membership. The representatives want to get their hands on Western wealth. The plan is to do this by way of environmentalism. The bureaucrats have worked to promote “a sustainable environment,” which means land use planning.
The plan is not working. First, a few voters know about it and are organizing political resistance. Second, the plan never has had any system of funding. Voters in hard-hit Western nations are not interested in sending money to Third World dictatorships. They are also not interested in funding Agenda 21.
