Now that the Agenda 21 Dream Team is officially in place, “Mother Earth’s” rights and yours could get swapped- at least that’s the mission.
Last week it was announced that Van Jones has officially become a board member of the Pachamama Alliance. To ignore the progression of Agenda 21 and “sustainability” is to ignore a potentially major change in global power that will affect the lives of everyone worldwide.
If they are able to gain the rights they seek, this could apply to just about everything we do and would certainly gain them total control of land and resource use at the very least.
You need to know just what Agenda 21 and Pachamama Alliance are and why you should care.
Pachamama’s stated purpose:
to empower indigenous people of the Amazon rainforest to preserve their lands and culture and, using insights gained from that work, to educate and inspire individuals everywhere to bring forth a thriving, just and sustainable world.
Van Jones has been very close to founder Lynne Twist for years, working on many of the same projects, so why is this the time they would choose to “officially” bring him on board at Pachamama? Looks like it’s full steam ahead for Agenda 21.
Along with the announcement, it was stated that they are working toward a proposal for the 2012 UN Rio Summit for “rights” for Mother Earth, otherwise known as sustainable development and/or Agenda 21. Agenda 21 came out of UNCED in Rio back in 1992:
The Johannesburg Plan of Implementation, agreed at the World Summit on Sustainable Development (Earth Summit 2002) affirmed UN commitment to ‘full implementation’ of Agenda 21, alongside achievement of the Millennium Development Goals and other international agreements.
Agenda 21 has the potential for complete global control, as it calls for sustainable development. According to the American Policy Center:
…the objective of sustainable development is to integrate economic, social and environmental policies in order to achieve reduced consumption, social equity, and the preservation and restoration of biodiversity. Sustainablists insist that every societal decision be based on environmental impact, focusing on three components; global land use, global education, and global population control and reduction.
“Every societal decision” made by the UN’s Agenda 21 policy; that is pretty all encompassing. With this policy, we can be told we must live by their idea of social justice, redistribution, population control, elimination of private property ownership and lack of sovereignty. Property is considered to belong to the community and be controlled by the government. It seems that Agenda 21 is one big Marxist wish list come true.
If it sounds far fetched to you, you haven’t been paying attention. Federal, state and NGO groups have been hard at work implementing these policies, often under the radar. Implementation comes under many names and many groups to disassociate it with the phrase “Agenda 21” and can usually be identified whenever you see “sustainability,” “smart growth,” “biodiversity” or “habitat” in the wording of the effort.
In some cases, it is proposed as a voluntary plan, but that is just a step in the process. Citizens can already dedicate their land use on a voluntary basis, so there is no reason to legislate it unless it is merely the beginning of a process.
Among hundreds of efforts nationwide, just this week we have seen the agenda in action is happening in West Texas. U.S. Fish & Wildlife is working to shut down oil and gas production due to their grave concern over the dunes sagebrush lizard, which the Obama administration is working to add to the endangered list. (I guess BP wasn’t available to shut things down in the desert, so they had to go for an endangered lizard to get the job done.) Investors.com commented:
When Obama recently addressed the current energy crisis, he told Americans not to worry:
We’ve been down this road before.
But we should worry — and for that very reason. We’ve seen the spotted owl kill logging and create ghost towns in the Northwest. The ESA’s listing of the delta smelt created 40% unemployment in California’s San Joaquin Valley and turned America’s food basket into a dust bowl.
Already you will see plans of how the UN agenda is being used to relocate populations to where they want them. Referring to Nigeria, Sidney Clouston of Clouston Energy Research writes:
The Top Down services are to meet with the Bottom UP activities which are to be Contract Growing contracts for the poor rural people. Employment opportunities can be promoted in urban slums so voluntary relocation to jobs and a better future may be the result.
China has been very active in the manipulation and movement of its’ people as well, following the Agenda 21 game plan. The Daily Bell describes the empty ghost towns of China as the government builds a mega city where they can concentrate population, and they suggest a possible link to Agenda 21 planning:
To us the entire plan as enunciated, seems to mimic the worst features of the USSR, where sterile, crumbling planned developments still dominate local landscapes. The Chinese may do it better but the spirit is no more laudable. The powers-that-be will decide where and how average Chinese will live, and obviously most of them will live in cities.
No wonder Van Jones wants a bigger piece of this action.
Coming soon to a metro area near you? Starting on a local level, as many citizen groups are already doing, every effort must be made to stop this in its tracks. Check out what’s going on in your state. It’s time to educate others and speak out loud and clear wherever you see this happening.
For those who would write them off as a bunch of environmental crazies; crazy, yes. Crazy like a fox, and the fox is already in the hen house.
