The Global Biodiversity Assessment Report directed by the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) calls for urgent action to reverse the effects of unsustainable human activities on global biodiversity, including but not limited to the following:

What is "Unsustainable"? by Freedom Advocates Staff
The above list is comprised of summary excerpts from the hard copy edition of the UNEP Global Biodiversity Assessment Report. For more internet information, one can view the UN Global Biodiversity link: http://earthwatch.unep.ch/biodiversity/assessment.php. However, the page numbers referred to above will not match the internet version.
simply means abolishment of private property.
I’m sure Page 730 is referring to rail lines in the off-limits “red zones”. I wish i could get ahold of a hard copy of this.
1000: Liberal reproductivity
Socialism is unsustainable..........
As Dame Thatcher once said, “Eventually you run out of other peoples’ money.”.....
The Democratic Party might want to weigh in on this issue seeing how this affects their voting base...........
That was just numbers 767,782.
IMHO...the most fun one was #733 - "Technolgy Improvement"...that covers a few acres, don't it?
If these people really want to do without all those “problems”, perhaps they could try it first in a more limited scale. I suggest the least developed island in the Aleutians chain.
Since we've done our part to get rid of the massive herds of buffalo, it's up to the Africans to get rid of the large herds of wildebeest.
Liberals “reproduce” by indoctrinating conservative/Christian children in public schools and universities.
“unsustainable human activities”
This will be the excuse for mandatory population reduction...always the lefts primary goal.
OF course all these regulations are directed at the West, as China will tell them to go to hell and the Islam world will threaten ‘jihad’.
Basically humans are unsustainable and they must be regulated by the crooks at the UN.
The list is like saying someone will do just fine without a skeleton and bloodstream.
“Inappropriate social structures” is my favorite. I guess those NFL tailgate partiers are one bratwurst away from the Gulag. :)
Y’all better get on the phones to deal with Senate 1619.
That’s the livable communities micromanaging everyone into high rises and making single family homes unaffordable.
It mimics the UN Agenda 21 “Nodes” which are areas people live, work and shop in and eventually need authorization to leave for other “nodes.”
The Soviets ain’t dead yet.
I’m so glad you mentioned this.
Let me quote from the Education for Sustainable Development Toolkit by UNESCO:
Education: Promise and Paradox:
Two of the major issues in the international dialog on sustainability are population
and resource consumption. Increases in population and resource use are thought to jeopardize a sustainable future, and education is linked both to fertility rate and resource consumption. Educating females reduces fertility rates and therefore population growth. By reducing fertility rates and the threat of overpopulation a country also facilitates progress toward sustainability. The opposite is true for the relationship between education and resource use. 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.
UNESCO IS ONE OF THE MOST VILE ORGANISATIONS ON THE PLANET.
Global Biodiversity Assessment is published for UNEP by Cambridge University Press, as a 1,140 page report (hardback $120/paperback $44.95) and a 56 page Summary for Policy Matters ($14.95). The editorial team comprised R. T. Watson (Chair), V. H. Heywood (Executive Editor), I. Baste, B. Dias, R. Gamez, T. Janetos, W. Reid and R. Ruark.

Actually.... in context I believe they are describing large areas of "monoculture." Such as occur, for example, all across the agricultural landscape of the American Midwest.
Surely it will help us all if we rid ourselves of that unsustainable situation.
