Agenda 21, nothing to see here

- August 27th, 2012

David Suzuki, a man that wouldn’t have any money were it not for his never ending series of taxpayer funded gigs is out misrepresenting a poll on climate change. Suzuki in his latest posting at the far left Rabble.ca claims that Canadians overwhelmingly accept man made climate change.

“Most North Americans know that human-caused global warming is real, even if political leaders don’t always reflect or act on that knowledge.”

Suzuki then cites this poll, as reported on by the state broadcaster to back his claim up. But even CBC notes that only 32% believe that climate change is a man made phenomenon while 54% believe that human activity and natural changes are to blame. Funny, that’s not part of Suzuki’s official dogma. How did people get to that conclusion? How dare they!

A little later in the column Suzuki points to another matter that I have been giving some attention to, Agenda 21.

“There’s also a subset of deniers who see some nefarious conspiracy in climate science and “Agenda 21” (a nonbinding, voluntary UN agreement on sustainable development) to impose a world government or something, but their irrational arguments aren’t worth the time of day.”

Agenda 21 is indeed a non-binding UN agreement but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t have teeth. It guides the actions of the UN and leads to national governments acting on its plans. More worrisome, a number of cities and towns have joined ICLEI – International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives. See if your town below has signed on and ask yourself if you heard any debate about this.

Agenda 21 is a bureaucrat to bureaucrat method of foisting UN approved environmental plans on local communities without the UN needing to deal with national governments. Sound undemocratic to me.
