What is Agenda 21?
The US Report ^ | Nov. 16, 2011 | Chris Carter

Posted on 11/16/2011 9:17:25 AM PST by FatMax

The UN plan referenced by Newt Gingrich is a real threat to private property and US sovereignty.

“Agenda 21 proposes an array of actions which are intended to be implemented by every person on Earth…it calls for specific changes in the activities of all people… Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all humans, unlike anything the world has ever experienced… ” - Agenda 21: The Earth Summit Strategy to Save Our Planet (Earthpress, 1993).

Presidential candidate Newt Gingrich stated during a recent campaign event that the United Nations was seeking to create an “extraconstitutional control” over the US with programs like Agenda 21. Gingrich's remarks are featured in a YouTube video. But what is Agenda 21, and why has it taken nearly 20 years before this subject got national recognition?

Agenda 21 seeks to control populations through zoning and seizure of private property, strip national sovereignty, reduce the world population, even control our consumption of meat and air conditioning ... all in the name of the environment. And who can be against the environment, right?

Many Americans cringe at the mention of “global government” or “conspiracy.” And often, conspiracy theories have little basis in fact. But we must recognize that it is a basic element of human nature to seek the acquisition of wealth and power, and that people throughout human history have conspired together to do so. Not all conspiracies are real, but they do exist. And Agenda 21 is a perfect example.

From the report produced by the United Nations Conference on Human Settlements, which was a predecessor to Agenda 21: “Land...cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of...

It's about the global ruling-class conspiring to starve 6.5-billion people to return Mother Earth to a "sustainable" population of 500,000,000 with them in charge of their remaining servants.

What business is it of any person or group to dictate how many people are to be allowed to live on the planet? The number of people on the planet doesn’t have as much of an impact as the behavior of those people. We just have to live sensibly, and our economies don’t have to be destroyed and our liberties sacrificed to corrupt, power hungry people in order to do so.

Agenda 21 is strongly adhered to by Obama and his team with the long range goal of eliminating private property and controlling all land water and human activity. Many gullible people sign on to the gentle sounding ideas like, parks, wild lands and bike paths without understanding the bigger game behind the incremental creep of the international socialist movement.

THIS HAS ALMOST NOTHING TO DO WITH THE ENVIRONMENT.

That is simple the vehicle they use because it is something everyone can support in one way or another.

“Land…cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth, therefore contributes to social injustice.”

Let me know if you want to be included on my Agenda 21 ping list.

Having researched Agenda 21 for years, I am glad to see that it has moved from tinfoil hat conspiracy territory to legitimate threat. So much so that a top-tier candidate is mentioning it. If only the threat was considered legitimate when it was signed nearly two decades ago.

The Agenda 21 is much further along in this country than people realize. The roadless public lands are a big part of it, along with all the “Gateway” corridors that are being planned around the country.

They call it the Wildlands Program. It’s intended to herd the population into urban centers, leaving vast swathes of rural land, roadless and off limits to human activity. The urban centers will be connected by multi-modal transportation corridors, known as “Gateways”, which will carry both people and cargo through rural areas, limiting the incursions into the rural lands, which are to be returned to their natural state and returned to their rightful owners, the Indians (the only Native Americans).

It seems that about once a month, we are reading that the Obama administration has added more land in some state to the roadless wilderness, but today, we heard that there is a proposal to ban guns from much of the federal land.

The European Union is the model. Create a supreme government that allows individual countries to keep their identities and constitutions, but is the final arbiter in disputes (which nullifies your identity and constitution).

As you see, no nation is allowed to leave the European Union.

The same will happen after a worldwide economic collapse.

The US, EU, Canada, Mexico, etc will all end up under a single government that allows each to retain their identity. It allows the US to keep its Constitution, but that is only to prevent an immediate revolution.

In return, our debts are erased, our economy is combined with others (we are told the lie that this is like uniting the 50 states), our military is combined with others, reducing our share of the burden and our future is secure.

What's truly tragic about the plan is that when they have achieved their "goals" they won't have enough of the people left who know how to care for the planet. These idiots think "Nature takes care of itself," all the mounting evidence to the contrary. Nobody I know who does any kind of stewardship work believes it. Nature doesn't know or care what it becomes. It is not a self-optimizing system.

Here is your Green movement. From Chapter 4.

Any of this sound familiar?

“Section I
Social & Economic Dimensions
Chapter 4
Changing Consumption Patterns


4.1. This chapter contains the following programme areas:

(a) Focusing on unsustainable patterns of production and consumption;

(b) Developing national policies and strategies to encourage changes in unsustainable consumption patterns.

4.2. Since the issue of changing consumption patterns is very broad, it is addressed in several parts of Agenda 21, notably those dealing with energy, transportation and wastes, and in the chapters on economic instruments and the transfer of technology. The present chapter should also be read in conjunction with chapter 5 (Demographic dynamics and sustainability).

PROGRAMME AREAS


A. Focusing on unsustainable patterns of production and consumption
Basis for action
4.3. Poverty and environmental degradation are closely interrelated. While poverty results in certain kinds of environmental stress, the major cause of the continued deterioration of the global environment is the unsustainable pattern of consumption and production, particularly in industrialized countries, which is a matter of grave concern, aggravating poverty and imbalances.

4.4. Measures to be undertaken at the international level for the protection and enhancement of the environment must take fully into account the current imbalances in the global patterns of consumption and production.

4.5. Special attention should be paid to the demand for natural resources generated by unsustainable consumption and to the efficient use of those resources consistent with the goal of minimizing depletion and reducing pollution. Although consumption patterns are very high in certain parts of the world, the basic consumer needs of a large section of humanity are not being met. This results in excessive demands and unsustainable lifestyles among the richer segments, which place immense stress on the environment. The poorer segments, meanwhile, are unable to meet food, health care, shelter and educational needs. Changing consumption patterns will require a multipronged strategy focusing on demand, meeting the basic needs of the poor, and reducing wastage and the use of finite resources in the production process.

4.6. Growing recognition of the importance of addressing consumption has also not yet been matched by an understanding of its implications. Some economists are questioning traditional concepts of economic growth and underlining the importance of pursuing economic objectives that take account of the full value of natural resource capital. More needs to be known about the role of consumption in relation to economic growth and population dynamics in order to formulate coherent international and national policies.

Objectives
4.7. Action is needed to meet the following broad objectives:

(a) To promote patterns of consumption and production that reduce environmental stress and will meet the basic needs of humanity;

(b) To develop a better understanding of the role of consumption and how to bring about more sustainable consumption patterns.

Activities
A) Management-related activities
Adopting an international approach to achieving sustainable consumption patterns
4.8. In principle, countries should be guided by the following basic objectives in their efforts to address consumption and lifestyles in the context of environment and development:

(a) All countries should strive to promote sustainable consumption patterns;

(b) Developed countries should take the lead in achieving sustainable consumption patterns;

Developing countries should seek to achieve sustainable consumption patterns in their development process, guaranteeing the provision of basic needs for the poor, while avoiding those unsustainable patterns, particularly in industrialized countries, generally recognized as unduly hazardous to the environment, inefficient and wasteful, in their development processes. This requires enhanced technological and other assistance from industrialized countries.

4.9. In the follow-up of the implementation of Agenda 21 the review of progress made in achieving sustainable consumption patterns should be given high priority.

B) Data and information
Undertaking research on consumption
4.10. In order to support this broad strategy, Governments, and/or private research and policy institutes, with the assistance of regional and international economic and environmental organizations, should make a concerted effort to:

(a) Expand or promote databases on production and consumption and develop methodologies for analysing them;

(b) Assess the relationship between production and consumption, environment, technological adaptation and innovation, economic growth and development, and demographic factors;

(c) Examine the impact of ongoing changes in the structure of modern industrial economies away from material-intensive economic growth;

(d) Consider how economies can grow and prosper while reducing the use of energy and materials and the production of harmful materials;

(e) Identify balanced patterns of consumption worldwide which the Earth can support in the long term.

Developing new concepts of sustainable economic growth and prosperity
4.11. Consideration should also be given to the present concepts of economic growth and the need for new concepts of wealth and prosperity which allow higher standards of living through changed lifestyles and are less dependent on the Earth’s finite resources and more in harmony with the Earth’s carrying capacity. This should be reflected in the evolution of new systems of national accounts and other indicators of sustainable development.

C) International cooperation and coordination
4.12. While international review processes exist for examining economic, development and demographic factors, more attention needs to be paid to issues related to consumption and production patterns and sustainable lifestyles and environment.

4.13. In the follow-up of the implementation of Agenda 21, reviewing the role and impact of unsustainable production and consumption patterns and lifestyles and their relation to sustainable development should be given high priority.

Financing and cost evaluation
4.14. The Conference secretariat has estimated that implementation of this programme is not likely to require significant new financial resources.


B. Developing national policies and strategies to encourage changes in unsustainable consumption patterns
Basis for action
4.15. Achieving the goals of environmental quality and sustainable development will require efficiency in production and changes in consumption patterns in order to emphasize optimization of resource use and minimization of waste. In many instances, this will require reorientation of existing production and consumption patterns that have developed in industrial societies and are in turn emulated in much of the world.

4.16. Progress can be made by strengthening positive trends and directions that are emerging, as part of a process aimed at achieving significant changes in the consumption patterns of industries, Governments, households and individuals.

Objectives
4.17. In the years ahead, Governments, working with appropriate organizations, should strive to meet the following broad objectives:

(a) To promote efficiency in production processes and reduce wasteful consumption in the process of economic growth, taking into account the development needs of developing countries;

(b) To develop a domestic policy framework that will encourage a shift to more sustainable patterns of production and consumption;

(c) To reinforce both values that encourage sustainable production and consumption patterns and policies that encourage the transfer of environmentally sound technologies to developing countries.

Activities
A) Encouraging greater efficiency in the use of energy and resources
4.18. Reducing the amount of energy and materials used per unit in the production of goods and services can contribute both to the alleviation of environmental stress and to greater economic and industrial productivity and competitiveness. Governments, in cooperation with industry, should therefore intensify efforts to use energy and resources in an economically efficient and environmentally sound manner by:

(a) Encouraging the dissemination of existing environmentally sound technologies;

(b) Promoting research and development in environmentally sound technologies;

(c) Assisting developing countries to use these technologies efficiently and to develop technologies suited to their particular circumstances;

(d) Encouraging the environmentally sound use of new and renewable sources of energy;

(e) Encouraging the environmentally sound and sustainable use of renewable natural resources.

B) Minimizing the generation of wastes
4.19. At the same time, society needs to develop effective ways of dealing with the problem of disposing of mounting levels of waste products and materials. Governments, together with industry, households and the public, should make a concerted effort to reduce the generation of wastes and waste products by:

(a) Encouraging recycling in industrial processes and at the consumed level;

(b) Reducing wasteful packaging of products;

(c)Encouraging the introduction of more environmentally sound products.

C) Assisting individuals and households to make environmentally sound purchasing decisions
4.20. The recent emergence in many countries of a more environmentally conscious consumer public, combined with increased interest on the part of some industries in providing environmentally sound consumer products, is a significant development that should be encouraged. Governments and international organizations, together with the private sector, should develop criteria and methodologies for the assessment of environmental impacts and resource requirements throughout the full life cycle of products and processes. Results of those assessments should be transformed into clear indicators in order to inform consumers and decision makers.

4.21. Governments, in cooperation with industry and other relevant groups, should encourage expansion of environmental labelling and other environmentally related product information programmes designed to assist consumers to make informed choices.

4.22. They should also encourage the emergence of an informed consumer public and assist individuals and households to make environmentally informed choices by:

(a) Providing information on the consequences of consumption choices and behaviour so as to encourage demand for environmentally sound products and use of products;

(b) Making consumers aware of the health and environmental impact of products, through such means as consumer legislation and environmental labelling;

(c) Encouraging specific consumer-oriented programmes, such as recycling and deposit/refund systems.

D) Exercising leadership through government purchasing
4.23. Governments themselves also play a role in consumption, particularly in countries where the public sector plays a large role in the economy and can have a considerable influence on both corporate decisions and public perceptions. They should therefore review the purchasing policies of their agencies and departments so that they may improve, where possible, the environmental content of government procurement policies, without prejudice to international trade principles.

E) Moving towards environmentally sound pricing
4.24. Without the stimulus of prices and market signals that make clear to producers and consumers the environmental costs of the consumption of energy, materials and natural resources and the generation of wastes, significant changes in consumption and production patterns seem unlikely to occur in the near future.

4.25. Some progress has begun in the use of appropriate economic instruments to influence consumer behaviour. These instruments include environmental charges and taxes, deposit/refund systems, etc. This process should be encouraged in the light of country-specific conditions.

F) Reinforcing values that support sustainable consumption
4.26. Governments and private-sector organizations should promote more positive attitudes towards sustainable consumption through education, public awareness programmes and other means, such as positive advertising of products and services that utilize environmentally sound technologies or encourage sustainable production and consumption patterns. In the review of the implementation of Agenda 21, an assessment of the progress achieved in developing these national policies and strategies should be given due consideration.

Means of implementation
4.27. This programme is concerned primarily with changes in unsustainable patterns of consumption and production and values that encourage sustainable consumption patterns and lifestyles. It requires the combined efforts of Governments, consumers and producers. Particular attention should be paid to the significant role played by women and households as consumers and the potential impacts of their combined purchasing power on the economy.”

Talk about creepy....

And if you don’t think the Agenda 21 folk aren’t setting up in YOUR town - via locals - you are mistaken, Even in our little county seat in Maine. They are here, like wood termites. They don’t call it AGenda 21 in the communites...research it.

Name one other candidate that has even mentions Agenda 21 = or even knows about it. (the demRAts have been working with the UN to implement UN over our sovereignty for years.

Our window of opportunity to stop the take over is short - very short.

scroll down to the map showing the uses that they will determine - the red - “core reserves and corridors - litle to no human use”

zone 2: yellow :Highly egulated use
3: lite green (very little of that -”normal use - zones of cooperation” and who determines the ‘cooperation?
4. NAFTA constrolled

The red “reserves and corridors ‘ are interconnected for wildlife to travel from one area to the next.
The zones where people will be allowed to live - mostly in ‘sustainable cities - no need for cars or private transportation - will not be connected and to travel from one to another, you will need permission.

This is just the tip of the iceburg...and if that doesn’t give you a chill, check your pulse. Your dead.

Oh - and our military will be under the control of the UN.

‘Might want to save the sight - do research - and see if you have “substainable developement’ and other innocent sounding groups already digging in to your town.
