Green Foundations: Agenda 21

___I'm a bit late, but it is still worthwhile. RK___

GOP Platform Rejects U.N. Agenda 21 as Threat to Sovereignty
The New American
The official GOP platform approved at the Republican National Convention in Tampa included tough language rejecting the United Nations “sustainability” scheme known as Agenda 21 for the threat it represents to national sovereignty, drawing praise from ...
The UN in particular remains in “dire need of reform,” Republicans said in the document, attacking the global organization’s “overpaid bureaucrats,” its “scandal-ridden management,” and the fact that some of the world’s most barbaric tyrants hold seats on the so-called “Human Rights Council.” Unless and until the situation improves, the platform stated, the UN can never expect the full support of the American people. Some Republicans such as Congressman Ron Paul go further, calling for the United States to get out of the UN entirely.   Some matters, however, are non-negotiable. "We strongly reject the U.N. Agenda 21 as erosive of American sovereignty, and we oppose any form of U.N. Global Tax,” the platform explains. The language echoes a resolution adopted by the GOP earlier this year slamming the planetary scheme to enforce so-called “sustainable development” on the world.

Democrats Oppose Agenda 21 –
 OK, So what is Agenda 21? ... We strongly reject the U.N. Agenda 21 as erosive of American sovereignty…sounds like science fiction, or some conspiracy theior, but it isn’t.   UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is implemented worldwide to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all information, and all human beings in the world.   Inventory and control.  Have you wondered where these terms 'sustainability' and 'smart growth' and 'high density urban mixed use development' came from?  Doesn't it seem like about 10 years ago you'd never heard of them and now everything seems to include these concepts?  Is that just a coincidence?  That every town and county and state and nation in the world would be changing their land use/planning codes and government policies to align themselves with...what?

Sustainability in Business
The Earth Times (blog)
Sustainability - "Humanity has the ability to make development sustainable - to ensure that it meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their needs."

My Take – When you read their “official” explanations about sustainable development you think….well….that makes sense.  The reality is that ultimately it will mean little or no development.
