On June 29, 1993 President Clinton signed Executive Order 12852. The Order established the President’s Council on Sustainable Development. Appropriately, Gore was given authority over the Council and would aid in selecting its twenty-five ultraist members, which included:
- Co-Chairman, Jonathan Lash, President, World Resources Institute; an organization dedicated to “putting environmental issues on the international agenda.”
- John Adams, Executive Director, Natural Resources Defense Council; their Mission Statement declares the “NRDC strives to help create a new way of life for humankind.”
- Michelle Perrault, International Vice President, Sierra Club, whose goals include, “Creating the domestic conditions needed for the U.S. to lead in negotiating and implementing an international climate treaty.”
- John Sawhill, President, The Nature Conservancy, an organization that “is working with world leaders to build support of an international climate change agreement,” which will include “funding…to help buffer the impacts of climate change on people.”
Also on the Council were key members from the Clinton administration, representing a coalition in keeping with the pillars of the economy, social issues and the environment:
- Bruce Babbitt, Secretary of the Interior. Babbitt is now a Director of the World Wildlife Fund, a radical, environmental group that is hostile to humankind and seeks “to be the voice for those creatures who have no voice.”
- Carol Browner, Administrator, Environmental Protection Agency. Browner stepped down as President Obama’s Director of the Office of Energy and Climate Change Policy in 2011.
- Andrew Cuomo, Secretary, Department of Housing and Urban Development. Cuomo is a career politician who is currently the Governor of New York. In 2008, as New York’s Attorney General, Cuomo filed a lawsuit against the George W. Bush administration’s EPA for “refusal to control pollution from oil refineries.” Cuomo claimed Bush had “a do-nothing policy on global warming.”
- William Daley, Secretary, Department of Commerce. Daley was also appointed to the board of government mortgage giant Fannie Mae. He went on to Chair Al Gore’s 2000 Presidential campaign. After several lucrative years in the elite banking industry, he became Obama’s Chief of Staff in 2011.
- Bill Richardson, Secretary, Department of Energy. Richardson ran for President in 2008, proposing to cut US oil demand 50-percent by 2020 and mandate a 90-precent reduction on carbon dioxide emissions by 2050
The Sustainable Development Council soon cranked out its goals in a statement entitled, “We Believe,” which clearly scores well with the ambitions of the United Nations, flies in the face of the foundations of American liberty. Please note my personal comments, which I have italicized.
Economic growth, environmental protection, and social equity are linked. We need to develop integrated policies to achieve these national goals. Once again we see the economy, the environment and government-mandated handouts to those deemed less fortunate, bonded together. To the rational citizen, these should be three distinctly separate issues, but in this case the goal is to create policies that effect all levels of government, business and education, to see the “national goals” through.
The United States should have policies and programs that contribute to stabilizing global human population…
No we should not! There is certainly nothing in the Unites States Constitution that would allow the federal government to enter into population control. My God! This is a goal that in the hands of a madman could require gross extermination.
Even in the face of scientific uncertainty, society should take reasonable actions to avert risks where the potential harm to human health or the environment is thought to be serious or irreparable.
“Even in the face of scientific uncertainty”? I understand that at some point we all are required to make decisions based upon uncertainty, however, big decisions based upon a lack of facts end up relying on Las Vegas-like luck in order to succeed. Additionally, such uncertainty would naturally allow for ones personal bias to factor into the decision that is ultimately made. This is no way to create policy for 300 million citizens.
May I ask you, is this what you believe? Gore’s Council was cleverly convened to push a plan inconsistent with the constitutional principals of life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
But it gets worse.
In addition to putting aside certainty in making policy decisions, the Council also determined that there would be no debate regarding global warming:
The Council should not debate the science of global warming, but should instead focus on the implementation of national and local greenhouse gas reduction policies and activities, and adaptations in the U.S. economy and society that maximize environmental and social benefits, minimize economic impacts, and are consistent with U.S. international agreements.
Game. Set. Match. As far as this key council was concerned, there was no need to debate the hottest issue of the day.
Now you understand why, to this day, Al Gore repeatedly make statements like, “there’s no legitimate debate,” or that those who do not believe in the theory of human-caused global warming are “like the ones who still believe that the moon landing was staged in a movie lot in Arizona and those who believe the earth is flat.”
Gore is using junk science to push an agenda designed to destroy America and make himself rich.
