Recently, Joyce Albright wrote an anti-government letter and included a reference to Agenda 21.
Agenda 21 is a voluntary action plan developed by the United Nations and national governments at the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, in 1992.
It presents a vision for how all levels of government — especially in the developing world — can take voluntary action to combat poverty and pollution, conserve natural resources and develop in a sustainable manner. Including the U.S. under the Bush administration, 178 nations adopted the agenda.
It is not a treaty or legally binding document, and it does not infringe upon the sovereignty of any nation, state or local government. Agenda 21 does not advocate for abolishing private property or have any bearing on U.S. local and state land use decisions. It isn’t being forced on anybody, anywhere, by any organization.
Never miss a local story.
We’ve got global problems, and it’s going to take governments working together to help find solutions. I don’t understand why that’s a bad thing.
