If you like your electricity, refrigeration, and air conditioning, you should pay careful attention. Most readers are by now familiar with Smart Meters that read electricity, gas, and water consumption from a remote location. They are mandated and forced upon us by the United Nations Agenda 21 through its octopus arms of the EPA, the federal government, NGOs, and local and state governments in the name of saving the planet. The Utility Mother Ship can turn off your power during peak consumption, very hot or cold days, and adjust your thermostats and appliances from far away.
Most readers are also familiar with this administration’s war on coal and their intent to bankrupt the coal industry and replace our electricity derived from coal (49%) with its underperforming and expensive cousin, electricity derived from green and renewable energy. Most know that this energy cannot deliver all the electricity that our large economy needs, hence rationing of electricity will have to take place. How will that be accomplished? The power companies will have the power and authority, with or without your expressed consent, but the blessing of our government, to cut off your power whenever they deem necessary.
Is this happening because our government really cares about the planet and alleged global warming? No. Is it happening because they want to transfer your wealth to poorer countries in the name of social justice, reduce your consumption deliberately, and control your health, travel, where you live, and what you do in your everyday life? Yes.
My grocery store advertises their Sustainability plan with a huge globe logo as 16 million pounds of food donated to food banks that did not have to go into landfills, 103 million pounds of cardboard and office paper recycled, saving 530,000 trees, and 1 reusable shopping bag eliminating over 160 million plastic bags (I have not verified the veracity of these claims). I have no problem with any of these savings because they are voluntary, people understanding that we share in keeping a clean environment and donating to those in need at the same time.
What I do have a problem with is forced government re-distribution of wealth to third world nations and rationing of our energy and electricity, bankrupting our economy in the process, making life so miserable unnecessarily, all in the name of saving the planet from an alleged global warming based on “consensus” and a climate change that varies anyway independently of man-made activity.
The latest assault on our freedom is the Environmental Protection Agency’s “optional” requirement for customers to connect refrigerators and freezers to a “smart grid” utility provider. The utility will regulate appliances power consumption, “including curtailing operations during more expensive peak-demand times.” An easy translation, your appliances will be cut off and your food and medicine stored therein will spoil.
Manufacturers of appliances are “encouraged” to add this connectivity feature; if they do, the bribery is a credit towards meeting the Energy Star efficiency requirements. How far of a stretch is it that in the very near future, an executive order will make it mandatory to connect everything to a smart meter and a smart grid? An IBD editorial is quoting former EPA director Carol Browner who told U.S. News and World Report in 2009, “Eventually, we can get to a system when an electric company will be able to hold back some of the power so that maybe your air-conditioner won’t operate to its peak.” http://news.investors.com/ibd-editorials/070513-662691-epa-pushes-refrigerator-smart-grid-connections.htm#ixzz2YDp3VXL2
Proponents of Sustainable Development, the keystone of U.N. Agenda 21, are worried that Americans are finally understanding that daily controls over land development/grab and energy policy are rooted in the global governance policy called U.N. Agenda 21 ratified in 1992 at the Earth Summit in Rio with the blessing of President George Bush Sr. and subsequently advanced through legislation and executive orders by Presidents Bill Clinton, George W. Bush, and Barack Obama.
Supporters of U.N. Agenda 21 dismiss the truth by saying that this document has no teeth, is 20 years old, and has no enforcement power. The American Planning Association, the EPA, the Club of Rome, Greenpeace, World Wildlife Fund, Green Cross International, World Watch Institute, Environmental Defense Fund, Planetary Citizens, Global Alliance for Transforming Education, Earth First, Sierra Club, ICLEI, and other non-governmental organizations (NGOs) say that they have “no connection to U.N. Agenda 21 and no hidden agenda.” There are thousands of statements, documents, quotes, and videos on the web that confirm their true agenda and connection to U.N. Agenda 21.
Tom DeWeese, one of more active speakers around the country against U.N. Agenda 21, found an article/commentary by Robert Odland, “How Sustainable is Our Planning” (Northern News, April 1994). Paragraph 5 was most revealing - “Vice President Gore’s book, Earth in the Balance addressed many of the general issues of sustainability. Within the past year, the President’s Council on Sustainable Development has been organized to develop recommendations for incorporating sustainability into the federal government. Also, various groups have been formed to implement U.N. Agenda 21, a comprehensive blueprint for sustainable development that was adopted at the recent UNCED conference in Rio de Janeiro.” (The Earth Summit) According to Tom DeWeese, this one paragraph ties together The American Planning Association, U.N. Agenda 21, UN’s Earth Summit, Al Gore, Sustainable Development, the President’s Council on Sustainable Development, NGO groups, and the “comprehensive Blueprint” for Sustainable planning. http://americanpolicy.org/2013/06/05/here-it-is-the-smoking-gun/#sthash.uEu4usay.UqCdIShE.dpuf
All these NGOs, APA, and the EPA are pushing sustainability because they believe “planning should be a tool for allocating resources… and eliminating the great inequalities of wealth and power in our society… because the free market has proven incapable of doing this.” The exact quote is found in the PlannersNetwork.org of which APA is a member. http://www.plannersnetwork.org/about/statement-of-principles/
We have to be careful stewards of our planet. We have been wasteful at times with our natural resources and we have affected knowingly and unknowingly biodiversity along the way. We fixed some problems and nature took care of others. It is easy to see how people would be duped into believing the environmental groups that are calling for a “green revolution.” But is this really their true intent, “greening the planet?” Here are two quotes of environmentalists that should give us all pause.
“We must make this an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects. We must reclaim the roads and plowed lands, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness millions of acres of presently settled land.” (David Foreman, co-founder of Earth First) http://www-formal.stanford.edu/jmc/progress/quotes.html
“The extinction of Homo Sapiens would mean survival for millions, if not billions, of Earth-dwelling species. Phasing out the human race will solve every problem on Earth – social and environmental.” (Ingrid Newkirk, former President of PETA) Newkirk, Ingrid, as quoted in Eco-terrorism: radical environmental and animal liberation movements by Don Liddick) http://books.google.com/books?id=kV4umgkiilcC
