Thinking Globally, Acting Locally How Sustainable Rule Took Over Your City

Tom DeWeese

Solar and wind farms to eliminate gas and oil; 15 Minute Cities; eliminating single-family homes; eliminating gas-powered cars; stop eating beef; no more warm water showers; ban ice cubes and electric stoves; Sustainable! How did these radical ideas become official policies in our once great American cities, now on the verge of collapse? Here’s the story.

San Francisco is the birthplace of the United Nations. On June 5th, 2005, it was also the location for a major effort by the UN to circumvent national and state governments in order to reorganize human society. This time the UN was targeting mayors to enlist them to be soldiers in the Sustainable war.

Like a scene from Michael Crichton’s landmark novel State of Fear, all the usual suspects, our self-appointed saviors, were there. There were UN bureaucrats seeking to increase their power and influence, NGOs with their private agendas, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, the host committee, including San Francisco Mayor Willie Brown and Senator Diane Feinstein. Walking among the crowd were actors Robert Redford and Martin Sheen. As everyone fawned over them, singer Judy Collins could be heard inspiring the gathering with her emotional lyrics. Of course, representatives from ICLEI and the Natural Resources Defense Council were joined by corporate sponsors including Federal Express, Toyota Prius, and Mitsubishi International Corporation Foundation, all dedicated to capitalizing on Sustainable Development practices.

As the cheerleading and drum circles faded, the gathering got down to the serious business. The mayors were pressed to commit their communities to specific legislative and policy goals by signing a slate of United Nations accords. Two documents were presented for the mayors’ signatures.

The first document was called the "Green Cities Declaration,” a statement of principles which set the agenda for the mayors’ assigned tasks. It said, in part, "Believing as Mayors of cities around the globe, we have a unique opportunity to provide leadership to develop truly sustainable urban centers based on culturally and economically appropriate local actions.” The Declaration detailed exactly how the UN intended to implement a very specific agenda in every town and city in the nation. The final line of the Green Cities Declaration was the point of the whole affair: "Signatory cities shall work to implement the following Urban Environment Accords. Each year cities shall pick three actions to adopt as policies or laws.”

The second document, called the "Urban Environment Accords,” included exactly 21 specific actions (as in Agenda 21) for the mayors to take, controlled by a timetable for implementation.

Here’s a quick look at a few of those agenda actions called for. Under the topic of energy, action, item number one called for mayors to implement a policy to increase the use of "renewable” energy by 10% within seven years. Renewable energy includes solar and wind power. Not stated in the UN documents is the fact that to meet the goal, a community would have to reserve thousands of acres of land to set up expensive solar panels and even more land for wind turbines – way beyond the two to five acres needed for a gas-fired generating plant. The cost of such "alternative” energy to the community would be vastly prohibitive. Yet, such unworkable ideas became the environmentally -correct order of the day that the mayors were being urged to follow.

One of the actions offered in the Urban Environmental Accords dealt with the topic of water. Action item number twenty called for adoption and implementation of a policy to reduce individual water consumption by 10% by 2020. Interestingly, the document began by stating: "Cities with potable water consumption greater than 100 liters per capita per day will adopt and implement policies to reduce consumption by 10 percent by 2015.”

However, according to the U.S. Geological Survey, Americans actually need about 100 GALLONS per day to perform their basic functions. Consider also that there is no specific water shortage in the United States. Such restrictions, as outlined in the Urban Environment Accords, are really nothing more than a dishonest campaign by the UN to control water consumption. Control the water, control the people.

Perhaps the most outrageous promise was action number sixteen in which the mayors were to agree: "Every year identify three products, chemicals, or compounds that are used within your city that represents the greatest risk to human health and adopt a law to eliminate their sale and use in the city.” There you have it. Every year, our nation’s mayors were to promise to ban something!

What was to be each mayor’s reward for destroying private property rights, increasing energy costs on less consumption, and banning something useful every year? He would get Green Stars! According to UN documents, if your mayor could successfully complete 8 to 11 of the prescribed 21 actions, the town would get a green star and the designation, "Local Sustainable City.” Twelve to 17 actions completed would garner two green stars and the designation, "National Sustainable City.” Fifteen to 18 actions completed would bring in three green stars and the title, "Regional Sustainable City.” Finally, the energizer bunny mayor who completed 19 to 21 actions completed would get a full four green stars and the ultimate designation of, "Global Sustainable City.” Certainly, he or she would also get a plaque and get to sit at the head table at the next UN Sustainable Development conference.

Sustainable Development is truly stunning in its all-encompassin g reach to transform the world into feudal-like governance by making nature the central organizing principle for our economy and society. It is a scheme fueled by unsound science and discredited economics that can only lead modern society down the road to a new Dark Ages of human misery. It’s a policy of banning goods and regulating human action. There is no place in the Sustainable world for individual thought, private property, or free enterprise. It’s the exact opposite of the free society envisioned by this nation’s founders.

Again, the UN’s meeting with the mayors took place in 2005. Do the dictates of the Green Cities Declaration still guide the process? Well, as usual, over time the names change, but the policies become more targeted and radical.

Fourteen major American cities are part of a globalist climate NGO known as the "C40 Cities Climate Leadership Group.” The goal of the group is "0” meat and dairy consumption by 2030. Also included in the goals are "0” private vehicles owned by citizens, only "one” short-haul air flight per person every 3 years, and "3” new clothing items per person per year.

The group is funded mainly by Democrat billionaire Mike Bloomberg, and nearly 100 cities across the world are members. In the U.S. members include Austin, Boston, Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, New Orleans, New York City, Philadelphia, Phoenix, Portland, San Francisco, Washington, D.C., and Seattle. Most recently Ohio cities, Cleveland, Cincinnati, and Dayton have joined.

Most notable, in the current era, is the "Circular Economy,” leading to "Circular Cities.” The main force promoting the Circular Economy is the World Economic Forum (WEF) and its Great Reset. The WEF actually provides instruction for local elected officials to help them impose the very same plans as outlined in the Green Cities Declaration.

One of the main policy goals of the Circular Economy is the elimination of cash money, to be replaced with digital currency. Once digital currency is in place imagine the control each mayor will then hold over every citizen. Every action will be monitored. Break the sustainable rules and every dime you have in bank accounts will be confiscated from such an unworthy citizen. As the WEF’s head, Klaus Schwab said, "Own nothing and be happy!” Right out of the Green Cities Declaration. Freedom dies at the whim of a mayor competing for his next plaque.
