Four communities have rejected Sustainability since the first of the year. More will surely follow. To confront sustainability in your community you should learn everything you can about it.
More than 600 American communities have entered into agreements with ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives), an international non-government organization created by the United Nations. ICLEI-USA was formed in 1995. ICLEI is a tool of both the U.N. and the federal government, used to transform American cities into Sustainable Communities.
What is, and is not, sustainable is defined in Agenda 21, a 40-chapter document adopted in 1992 by the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development. This document was translated into domestic policy through the Presidents Council on Sustainable Development, created in 1993. Originally, the program was promoted as implementing Local Agenda 21, but soon ran into trouble.
J. Gary Lawrence, Director of the Center for Sustainable Communities at the University of Washington and Chief Planner in the City of Seattle, told a London audience that:
In the case of the U.S., our local authorities are engaged in planning processes consistent with LA21 but there is little interest in using the LA21 brand. Participating in a UN advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy-fixated groups and individuals in our society such as the National Rifle Association, citizen militias and some members of Congress. This segment of our society who fear one-world government and a UN invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to defeat any elected official who joined the conspiracy by undertaking LA21. So, we call our processes something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or smart growth.

... So, we call our processes something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or smart growth.Translation: We lie about what we're doing by hiding behind deceptive descriptions. We don't want anyone to discover what our agenda really is.
It sounds crude, but could simultaneously solve many problems. I think hitler tried a variation of this a few years back.
The Republican majority in my County in Colorado is overwhelmingly in favor of the same land use regs for over 10 years. ...same as Democrats in other counties and states. No-vote.
Very scary stuff, a must read.
Is that pronounced “ickly”?
I’m in favor of sustainability, too. And environmentalism. But I’m talking about the real things, not the politicized combination of hippie idiocy and corrupt political control.
I burn wood in my stove. I buy local when I can do it without much extra expense.
For America to be sustainable, it needs to grow its own food, produce its own oil, gas, coal, and minerals, build its own nuclear plants, manufacture most of its own products, and so forth.
All of that is the opposite of what these NWO types are working toward.
indeed it is.
The only sustainable economy is one based on surplus.
