Agenda 21 is not a voluntary program. The smoking gun is Bill Clinton’s Executive Order # 12852 in 1993, creating the President’s Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD). Clinton’s executive order bypassed Congress and forced taxes and restrictive policies on the American people.
Agenda 21 is the action plan to implement “sustainable development”, a term coined by the United Nations that they define as “development that meets the needs of the present without compromising the ability of future generations to meet their own needs.”
Sustainable development may sound nice, but in practice it aims for totalitarian control and depopulation as Clinton’s President’s Council on Sustainable Development (PCSD) documents prove. Global warming is the excuse that is used.
Members of Clinton’s PCSD advisory included representatives from these groups:
Executive agencies: EPA, USDA, Department of the Interior, Department of Energy, Department of Defense, Department of Commerce, Department of Transportation, HUD, Department of Education and the Small Business Administration.
Big business: Ken Lay of Enron, BP Oil, Dow Chemical, General Motors, and more.
Extreme environmental groups: The Sierra Club, The Environmental Defense Fund, The Nature Conservancy and Natural Resources Defense Council.
The mission of Clinton’s PCSD was for members to advise him on forging environmental and other policies, creating strategies for implementation and propagandizing the public about sustainable development.
Clinton’s PCSD was preoccupied with locking down regulations, with complete disregard for the validity of global warming (see #4 in the Charter):
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…
This is alarming because in 2009 alone, an estimated $51 billion in taxpayer money was spent on ‘green stimulus’ subsidies in the US, which was used primarily for ethanol and alternative energy schemes (like Solyndra). Over $3 billion in stimulus money was spent to force Smart Meters on Americans for centralized control over individuals’ energy usage. Agenda 21’s implementation through taxation and policy is coercive; it is the very opposite of voluntary participation.
Clinton’s PCSD lists “population stabilization” as a primary goal.
The PCSD’s report on ‘Population and Consumption’ calls for slowing population growth and curbing US consumption.
There are 2 ways to “slow” and “stabilize” population: reduce the birth rate or reduce immigration.
While the PCSD used soft words like “reproductive health” to refer to contraception and abortion, Clinton’s record speaks for itself as his policies supported abortion on demand, federally funded abortion, late-term abortion and nullifying state limitations on abortion.
In 1993, Clinton introduced the “Health Security Act” (HR 3600) that is very similar to Obamacare and would have mandated that abortion be a covered expense, which Planned Parenthood described as a “watershed event just as significant, just as vital as Roe v Wade.”
While Clinton and his Council pretended to support limiting immigration and cracking down on illegal immigration, his record is contrary to those goals…
Clinton opposed English as the official language and strengthened bilingual education. He claimed to be strict on illegal immigration, but he actually granted amnesty to millions of illegal aliens, encouraging more to enter the US illegally.
Clinton’s Council recommended combating US consumption rates by reducing use of natural resources, reduction in economic development and land use restriction. However, they failed to mention any real constructive measures that could improve the environment, like using hemp to replace plastic and as a fuel source, or returning to traditional farming and crop rotation to reduce the need for fertilizer.
While the PCSD has disbanded, it got the ball rolling toward the implementation of Agenda 21 through soft law in the US that continues today.
