Agenda 21 - The Houston Chronicle Comes to the Rescue

By
Real Estate Agent with Keller Williams Ocean County 1005238

There has been some talk lately about "Agenda 21" and even legislation in Alabama over it's supposed plan of destroying private property rights of Americans.  I think the Houston Chronicle answers these conspiracy theorists correctly.

Excerpt:Conspiracy

"We'll call this campaign against Agenda 21 exactly what it is: a misguided conspiracy theory that lowers the level of dialogue and distracts from real issues. Texas deserves better. In reality, Agenda 21 is a creature with no teeth, only policy recommendations. It falls upon local voters and governments to decide whether they want to implement any of its points. Concerns about Agenda 21 should be up there with worrying that fluoridation is a Communist plot.

If politicians are concerned about the effects of sustainable development, they should talk about it in terms of policy rather than secret schemes. As for Houstonians, a city councilmember is probably a better resource than a YouTube video to learn about local sustainable development. And a conversation costs less than some groups' $195 "Stop Agenda 21" packet.

The Agenda 21 report may in its entirety have some good ideas, and some bad ones. As with any urban planning recommendation, cities have the ability to decide what is best for them. Despite the rumors, Houston isn't about to get rid of golf courses or paved streets."

Karl - Assuming the claim is true, what is the logical conclusion of preventing an anthropogenic climate change??  ;)

Jason - There is a book called "None dare call it a conspiracy". You can read it for free online, but I recommend finding a copy to look at the graphs and charts. Was written in 1971 and it talks about a global government. Very interesting read. It was funny that the author was trying so hard to show examples how the federal reserve was designed to help the banking cartel when that is so evident today.

OK - ONE MORE TIME: Agenda 21 is NON-BINDING!!!!!  What Alabama has done, in their paranoia, by passing this LAW is to take a 20 year old list of recommendations and made it the most important document in property development in the state. The legislation basically says that "any policy recommendations that are traceable to Agenda 21" will not be acceptable.  That could be interpreted to mean almost ANYTHING as the recommendations in Agenda 21 are fairly wide-ranging. And here I thought Republicans were against unnecessary laws and regulations....sheesh.

IMHO, there is no 'new world order' there is only the old world order of oligarchies that have been around for generations....hi Jason!

Satar, the debate about what to do about Anthropogenic Climate Change is the one we should have, not whether or not it exists.

Thank you Laura...I just think we should be passing laws to help smart-sustainable development, not legislation that could cause all kinds of unforeseen ramifications that use a 20 year old non-binding resolution as a new boogeyman.

"Satar, the debate about what to do about Anthropogenic Climate Change is the one we should have, not whether or not it exists."

I think we should talk about climate change and determine whether it is a natural cycle or caused by the inhabitants of the planet. Is there any other solutions to anthropogenic climate change other than population stability or depopulation?

I also agree with your stance on the Alabama law. I believe the law might create unintended consequences while trying to establish a political stance on a non-issue.
