TNA @ Rio+ Agenda 21 ~ Lord Monckton Breaks Down the Rio Conference (Video)

Liberty In Our Time | June 23 2012

Lord Christopher Monckton, chief policy advisor to the Science and Public Policy Institute and former science advisor to Margaret Thatcher, tells The New American from Rio that the just-concluded Rio+20 conference was not about saving the planet or eradicating poverty, but about shackling the plant under global government. He also optimistically stresses that the “pointy heads here in Rio” have failed despite their declaration of success and that “the game is up.” Video produced by http://www.libertynewsnetwork.tv

Michael McGuire ~ Nations Reach Agreement On Agenda 21 (Thanks, asp)

Examiner | June 19 2012

Leaders throughout the world have reached an agreement on a document specifying the goals of the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development.

The document, named by UN officials by such titles as Rio+20 and Agenda 21, is a global agreement to “shape new policies to promote prosperity, reduce poverty and advance social equity and environmental protection.”

Alex Newman ~ Science Group: UN Rio+20 Summit Must Reduce Global Population

The New American | June 14 2012

Funds vaccination programs to reduce world population

Governments and dictators assembling in Rio de Janeiro for the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development must adopt even more stringent policies to reduce the number of people in the world and make sure that those who remain stop consuming so much, a taxpayer-funded network of more than 100 science institutions demanded in a newly released statement.

Meanwhile, new economic models are also needed, claimed scientists associated with the IAP Global Network of Science Academies. Politics and ethics — in other words, the will and morality of the people — cannot be allowed to stand in the way of the UN “sustainability” regime any longer; at least not if the world is to be saved from its primary enemy: humanity.

“For too long, population and consumption have been left off the table due to political and ethical sensitivities,” complained U.K. Royal Society fellow Charles Godfray (pictured next to IAP logo), chairman of the IAP working group, in a bizarre attack on humanity and prosperity. “These are issues that affect developed and developing nations alike, and we must take responsibility for them together.”

The draft UN agreement being developed by national governments and environmental activist groups already deals with population control and reducing consumption, according to statements issued by the global body. But to the anti-population scientist coalition, whose controversial joint statement is being widely touted in the global media, more must be done.

Alex Newman ~ Media Hypes UN Fear-Mongering Before Rio+20 Sustainability Summit

The New American | June 12 2012

As governments and dictators around the world prepare for the upcoming “Rio+20” United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, the establishment press is hyping — rather than questioning — a dubious new UN report claiming that humanity’s failure to adopt so-called “sustainability” schemes threatens the Earth. Among the global entity’s controversial recommendations: less people, less consumption, “lifestyle modifications,” and a “shift” toward new “equity-based values.”

According to the UN report, dubbed the fifth “Global Environmental Outlook” (GEO-5), the Earth is in danger – and as always, it’s your fault. Humanity is the enemy. There are simply too many people consuming too many resources, and it will eventually bring about a cataclysm, the paper claims. However, if the global population promptly submits to the international body’s myriad demands, the UN implausibly alleges, it might still be possible to save the world.

Of course, it will not be easy. Or cheap. Individual liberty, self-governance, national sovereignty, and the human population — that means you and your family — will all have to be curtailed, according to the report. Meanwhile, the fortunate people who remain will have to consume a lot less — in other words, become much poorer — to be what the UN considers “sustainable.”

“Africa, Asia and the Pacific and Latin America and the Caribbean share the common problems of population growth and increasing consumption,” noted the UN, bizarrely attacking human beings and decreasing levels of poverty as “problems” to be solved by the global bureaucracy. In the developed world, meanwhile, more poverty is needed as well: “Europe and North America continue to operate at unsustainable levels of consumption,” the global entity claimed in its report.

To hide the fact that the planetary central-planning schemes will, if adopted, be making everyone except the elite and UN bureaucrats poorer, the report suggests ditching traditional indicators of progress and well-being such as Gross Domestic Product (GDP). Instead, governments must adopt new measurements: “a redefinition of wealth … to a more sustainable metric,” as the UN puts it.

“Scientific evidence shows that Earth systems are being pushed towards their biophysical limits, with evidence that these limits are close and have in some cases been exceeded,” the global body alleged. “International cooperation is essential, since environmental problems do not follow national boundaries.” In other words, the world is doomed unless nations submit to the UN — immediately.
