The United Nations has ensnared the world in voluntary treaties intended to become mandatory later, tricking politicians and the public. The treaties may be vague and open to interpretation over time, using a tactic known as 'incrementalism'. These treaties affect many branches of government. The treaties are designed to deindustrialize and economically break nations, restrict energy resources (especially for electricity and transportation) and implement taxation schemes based on manipulated science from the UN (the EPA has authority to implement Cap-and-Trade).
Agenda 21 Sustainable Development was introduced at the 1992 Earth Summit; it is not a treaty but uses treaties as a tool to implement its action plan for depopulation and total control. Michael Shaw has described Agenda 21 as the head of a monster whose tentacles have infiltrated all levels of government, affecting almost all areas of life, and he says that if you take out the head of the monster (Agenda 21), its tentacles will wither.
The UN avoids using the word 'treaty'. Most people understand that treaties erode national sovereignty and power. Voluntary treaties can be used to slide a foot in the door in order to trample sovereignty later through mandatory regulations.
Conventions, Protocols, Agreements, Covenants and Accords take the form of a treaty, which may be binding international legal instruments or may become binding later when negotiations are completed.An Initiative is a type of referendum in which a proposal is placed on the ballot by way of petition.
A Declaration does not have any legal power to enforce compliance but relies on the moral weight it carries.
UNFCCC: UN Framework Convention on Climate Change is a voluntary treaty ratified by the US in 1992 following the Earth Summit; no limits were set for greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, but the treaty provided for updates (protocols) to set mandatory limits.
The Kyoto Protocol is an amendment to the UNFCCC which is legally binding but the US never ratified this treaty. The Kyoto Protocol expires in 2012, hence the push to ratify it, or a similar treaty like the Copenhagen Accord.SCARY POLITICAL POLICIES:
According to Richard Courtney's article (May 1999) the real danger of global warming is the extreme response that politicians have had to imaginary global warming. Courtney says that the theory of global warming was developed during the Industrial Revolution in the 1880's, but remained relatively obscure until 1979 when Margaret Thatcher became the Prime Minister of the United Kingdom.
Courtney's article explains that Thatcher desired respect and followed the advice of Sir Crispin Tickell, depopulation advocate and UK ambassador to the UN. He pointed out that she could gain international credibility if she promoted the global warming (GW) deception because most politicians are scientifically illiterate (Thatcher holds an undergraduate degree in chemistry). The benefits to the Thatcher Administration GW policies were:• GW fear was used to weaken US power- if all other countries enacted carbon taxes and industrial reductions they could pressure and gain benefit over the US.
• Thatcher belonged to the Conservative Party that held a grudge against the National Union of Mineworkers who were blamed for the Party's prior defeats, so GW provided an excuse shut down many coal mines and eliminate the miners' political power.
• Nuclear energy emits no carbon dioxide (CO2), and many coal plants were replaced with nuclear power plants. Nuclear power, which presents its own risks, was 4 times as expensive as coal-fired electricity.
• The new nuclear power plants were necessary to produce nuclear weapons.
Thatcher established the Hadley Centre for Climate Prediction and Research, the operating agency for the UN IPCC (Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change). Hadley is located at East Anglia University, the focal point of the 'Climategate' scandal.RETURN OF THE GLOBAL WARMING ZOMBIE
UN global warming policies refuse to die because the EPA enforces them and endorses UN IPCC "science". The EPA created the first Cap-and-Trade scheme for acid rain by expanding the Clean Air Act in 1990 that generates billions a year in taxes for a problem that is not serious and this is the model for carbon taxation.
The EPA, through the Clean Air Act and a broad Supreme Court case ruling in 2007, has authority over air pollution that endangers public health. In 2009 the EPA came out with the CO2 'endangerment finding' that determined CO2 threatens public health! Therefore, the EPA appears to have the authority to regulate harmless CO2 and other minor greenhouse gas emissions (Texas is suing the EPA). The EPA has an 18,000 page document with new regulations that includes a Cap-and-Trade scheme, which is the back-up plan because the national bills for Cap-and-Trade failed.
The EPA and other federal agencies have received money from the taxpayer funded $787 billion Recovery Act stimulus program to pursue useless green policies. Over $7 billion dollars has been allocated to the EPA directly; the total amount for all agencies pursuing restrictions on electricty and transportation, in the name of the environment, is not known.DOE
The Department of Energy (DOE) has received over $30 billion from the Recovery Act stimulus program. The DOE is spending this money on perpetuating bad UN policies that include:
Energy Efficiency- this paves the way for licensing your home for energy efficiency (HR 2454).
Modernizing the Electric Grid- this program institutes the "Smart Grid" program that monitors your energy usage: how much is used, when it is used, and it can even track some appliances. Some people fear that the government will use the grid to remotely control personal energy usage. Here's a map of the DOE's consolidation of federal grids across America:
Carbon Capture and Storage- this program is a giant waste of money because carbon is harmless and even if there was 500% more carbon dioxide in the environment, it would be a benefit for agriculture and would not harm the atmosphere or animals and humans.
Transportation: Obama is proud of this program and boasted about creating jobs at a battery plant in Michigan, but $548 million was spent to create 309 jobs (that's $1.4 million per job).
Renewable Energy: this program focuses on biofuels, wind and solar power. Biofuel crops have cut down on food production. Wind and solar are inefficient. Of course, industrial hemp, a plant that is a source of fuel, food, paper and plastic replacement, is not mentioned, nor will it receive any funding because it threatens too many monopolies and is illegal to grow.ECONOMIC VAMPIRES
The centralization of power designed to depopulate and control people is funded by the people. The policies are dreamed up in think tanks affiliated with the UN, like the Club of Rome, famous for this quote:
"In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages, famine and the like would fit the bill....All these dangers are caused by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes and behavior that they can be overcome. The real enemy then, is humanity itself."
The policies are then supported by UN "science" that has proven to be manipulated, if not outright fraudulent. Based on inaccurate UN science, nations fund these programs and implement the policies. The taxpayers fund the governments, so We The People are actually paying for our own demise!
NGOs (Non Governmental Organizations) are deeply rooted in promoting propaganda to implement these programs and over 2400 NGO representatives went to the 1992 Earth Summit, and over 17,000 attended the parallel forum.
Here is a list of foundations that fund global warming propaganda and programs:
Deindustrialization through limiting electricity and transportation is a primary goal of Agenda 21 and the people are funding it. Therefore, the people and a true free market should decide the course of the future. Fossil fuels pollute, but severely reducing them would set us back to a pre-industrial existence. Nuclear power has serious risks. Renewable energy will not sustain an industrialized society.AWAKENING FROM THE NIGHTMARE
Darkness is destroyed by light. Exposure of Agenda 21's dark intentions is the first critical step. Action is essential. The most effective way to get rid of Agenda 21 is to educate your hometown local government officials (both city and county) that have far more power than most people realize.
