The UN Conference on Sustainable Development has wrapped up in Rio de Janeiro and the overwhelming consensus among participants is that the human population, left unchecked, is set to force a mass extinction of species.
The reason? Human’s are consuming the world’s resources at an alarming rate and are throwing the earth out of balance, say the eco-activists. Unless drastic protocols are emplaced, this terrestrial ball will experience a complete species meltdown, much like the cataclysmic event that killed off the dinosaurs millions of years ago, they contend.
The gathering of representatives from virtually every nation (and environmental organization) on the planet, was held to further the goals presented at the original UN Rio “Earth Summit” in 1992, via a detailed plan known as Agenda 21—the global political agenda for the 21st Century. The 1992 conference was unique in that it made global warming a household term, introduced the planet to Al Gore, and presented the details of a term conjured up by UN masterminds nearly 10 years earlier: “sustainable development.”
In short, sustainable development insists the human species is no more significant than any other species on the planet, and in fact should be discriminated against because, left unabated, the human population will do great harm to, or even destroy, all other species. Sustainable development is described by its architect, Maurice Strong, founder of the UN Environmental Program, as akin to “putting our planet, Earth Incorporated, if you will, on a sound business basis.”
That “business plan” sees liberty-loving humans as carriers of a plague. Its prescribed cure is liberty-sapping, heavy-handed regulations and laws designed to control human behavior and reproduction.
As for Agenda 21 (as I thoroughly explain in Eco-Tyranny), it’s sustainable development’s highly detailed action plan and it’s designed to move the nations toward a brave new world. The Agenda begins with a preamble that speaks to “the fulfillment of basic needs, improved living standards for all, better protected and managed ecosystems and a safer, more prosperous future. No nation can achieve this on its own; but together we can—in a global partnership for sustainable development.”
With such a dreamy, left-tilting, pronouncement it should be no surprise that Agenda 21 deems universal health care a “right.” It also redefines wealth, insisting on “the need for new concepts of wealth and prosperity.” The Agenda also encourages government-sponsored societal brainwashing, stating, “Achieving the goals of environmental quality and sustainable development will require…changes in consumption patterns.” Indeed, “Governments themselves [can] also play a role in [determining] consumption… and can have a considerable influence on both corporate decisions and public perceptions.”
Of course, Agenda 21 also heralds the abolition of private property rights; something Maurice Strong began pushing via the UN in 1976, at the Conference on Human Settlements, aka “Habitat I.” At that event Strong proclaimed,
As the Agenda states, governments shall “formulate appropriate land-use policies and introduce planning regulations specially aimed at the protection of eco-sensitive zones against physical disruption by construction and construction-related activities.”
This plank from Rio has provided the tyrannical inspiration to institute laws, regulations, and policies to mitigate physical private property rights here in the United States.
Coinciding with its plan to usher us into global socialist paradigm, Agenda 21 is responsible for promoting “green jobs,” as well as high speed rail and other mass transit projects which “promote the use of labor-intensive construction and maintenance technologies which generate employment in the construction sector for the underemployed labor force found in most large cities.”
And we can’t forget the hidden crown jewel of the sustainable development scheme: population control. Agenda 21 brashly reveals that the preferred tool for population repression is abortion. Cloaking their message with terms such as “curative health facilities,” (a deceptive alias for abortion clinics), the Agenda declares, “Governments should take active steps to implement programs to establish and strengthen preventive and curative health facilities that include women-centered, women-managed, safe and effective reproductive health care and affordable, accessible services, as appropriate, for the responsible planning of family size.”
But wait, there’s more.
Along with the UN doubling down on their sustainable development scheme in Rio last week, they now also insist that the “greatest threat” facing the planet is the extinction of species—due to the presence of too many people sucking up too many of the earth’s resources.
Trouble is, just like with global warming, extinction of species is not a problem.
The massive species losses cited at Rio are based on sloppy extrapolations, wild guesses and unfounded presumptions—all force-fed into biased, non-validated, virtual reality computer models that assume increased carbon dioxide levels will raise global temperatures so high that plants, birds, reptiles and animals will be exterminated.
Like their ridiculous global cooling, global warming, climate change scenarios, there is no evidence to support any of these bizarre extinction scenarios.
As I’ve stated on radio, TV, in my books, and my blogs: the environmental movement is not about clean air and clean water: it’s about killing capitalism, destroying free markets, and assaulting mankind.
