Have you heard there’s a U.N. agency going around getting local governments to sign “Agenda 21” into ordinances that will take away your private property through eminent domain? If not, you’ve avoided the propaganda put out by fossil fuel companies to subvert sustainability. If you have, here’s why it’s bunk.
There is an organization that promotes measures for sustainability to local governments. Sustainability as in arranging for local resources to be available for us and our children and grandchildren. Clean air, clean water, forests, education, and private property rights including not letting developers or big corporations damage your private property. Are you against any of those things?
An organization promoting sustainability with local governments is called ICLEI–Local Governments for Sustainability. ICLEI says it is:
the leading global network devoted to local governments engaged in sustainability, climate protection, and clean energy initiatives. The organization was formerly known as the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives.
ICLEI has heard about the conspiracy theories and has written up a rebuttal. There’s no point in quoting it here, because people who believe the propaganda won’t believe it anyway. I would go dig up some independent third-party evidence, but wait!
I already have dug up enough evidence about the fossil fuel company funding of the “Agenda 21” talking points propaganda. Those companies have the motive: strip mining, pollution, and gouging pipelines to the sea to export LNG are not sustainable, so sustainability cuts into their profits. They have the money, which they got from those profits from strip mining and pollution. And the evidence says they’re behind those anti-sustainability talking points.
Given that I’ve never seen anyone who repeats those talking points ever actually provide any evidence for any part of the propaganda being true, that’s enough for now.
Here’s the rest of the articles I’ve written about the “Agenda 21” paranoia.
Now I’m getting back to working for sustainable clean air and water.
