Here is a bill to stop Agenda 21 in Arizona.
This was created for the Legislature to enact but it is obvious that our government has sold out to let Agenda 21 slide. They must be getting paid off. If they cared about the people of the U.S. and our Constitution, Agenda 21 would be thown under the bus. No one wants a foriegn government to be in control of OUR natural resources, and to implement policy that designed to increase living costs to us, and increase profits to fake “environmental” businesses. We must stop Agenda 21, save the environment ourselves, and stand up for our constitutional rights.
SB 1507 prohibits the state and its political subdivisions from adopting or implementing the United Nations Rio Declaration on Environment and Development (Declaration).
The Declaration was adopted at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNED) in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in June 1992. 172 governments, including the United States, participated in UNCED. The goal of UNED was to establish a new and equitable global partnership toward international agreement to protect the integrity of the global environmental and developmental system. The International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) is an association with the mission “to build and server a worldwide movement of local governments to achieve tangible improvements in global sustainability with special focus on environmental conditions through cumulative local actions” (www.iclei.org). Countdown 2010 was a network of active partners who worked together towards the 2010 Biodiversity Target to tackle the causes of biodiversity loss (www.countdown2010.net). Local Action for Biodiversity is a global urban biodiversity program coordinated by ICLEI that is focused on developing a local government network for biodiversity action to promote a better understanding of local government biodiversity issues, leading to the implementation of appropriate measures within the participating local governments(www.iclei.org/lab). European Center for Nature Conservation is an independent organization working for the conservation and sustainable use of Europe’s nature, biodiversity and landscape (www.ecne.org). The International Union for Conservation of Nature is a result based, demand-driven plan of action that addresses global issues and incorporates national level priorities by recognizing the continuing need to support biodiversity conservation at all levels, with governments, civil society and the private sector (www.iucn.org). The President’s Council on Sustainable Development was established by President Clinton in June 1993 to advise him on sustainable development and develop “bold, new approaches to achieve our economic, environmental, and equity goals (www.clinton2.nara.gov/PCSD/).
