Host: Jim Schneider
Guest: Tom DeWeese
Tom DeWeese is the President of the American Policy Center.
As reported on Crosstalk on October 7th, Tom explained how Agenda 21 is a process that was first introduced at the “Earth Summit” in 1992 and sponsored by the United Nations. The idea is to transform everyone’s way of life through policy control over the way we use water, land and energy. Sustainable development proponents believe in this system because they believe the earth is highly overpopulated.
On that broadcast, Tom also described Agenda 21 as a “soft law” policy and not a treaty that must be ratified by the U.S. Senate. It’s a suggestion, which means that once a nation agrees to implement Agenda 21 programs, it will do it through its own legislative process.
In 1992, President George H.W. Bush signed the U.S. to Agenda 21. A year later, President Clinton signed an executive order to create the President’s Council on Sustainable Development in order to make Agenda 21 American law.
In this update to the October program, Tom describes some eye-opening, Agenda 21 related ideas such as: rainwater runoff taxes; the banning of flush toilets and septic tanks; “benefit corporations” that get favored treatment for agreeing with Agenda 21 policies; a White House rural council and more.
