Its all bout about control. Unfortunately this is but a small issue of the global power grab, For example : Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, Governments, and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment. Agenda 21, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, and the Statement of principles for the Sustainable Management of Forests were adopted by more than 178 Governments at the United Nations Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) held in Rio de Janerio, Brazil, 3 to 14 June 1992. The Commission on Sustainable Development (CSD) was created in December 1992 to ensure effective follow-up of UNCED, to monitor and report on implementation of the agreements at the local, national, regional and international levels. It was agreed that a five year review of Earth Summit progress would be made in 1997 by the United Nations General Assembly meeting in special session. . ...

ENVIRONMENTAL MANAGEMENT by Antonio C. Antonio November 22, 2012 Environmental Management refers to the deliberate human action to influence a certain number of conditions of the environment usually to favor particular human needs. As all resources are finite, they need to be managed, protected and carefully nurtured to ensure that they continue to provide long-term and sustainable support to man. To be more effective, there should be a partnership between government and private sector. This partnership could be compared to a bird in flight… both left and right wings working together for a specific purpose. Anything less will simply not work at all. Environmental management is universal… meaning, a global concern and not only a particular country. All countries in the world must have an environmental management agenda (like the Philippine Agenda 21[PA 21])… On the global level, all countries could adopt the principles and objectives of the Earth Summit; On the country level, like in the Philippi ...
The 12 year old girl that silenced the world for 6 minutes! Below is the full text of Severn Cullis-Suzuki’s speech before the UN Earth Summit in Rio, Brazil in 1992. Too bad the world listened, applauded, and shed an emotional tear, but did not do anything substantial, as the likes of all the leaders of every country decided it would be too restrictive on their accustomed way of life, and would cost their industrial cronies too much and so with our country - Philippines whose leaders are so concentrated not on preserving / protecting the environment... but on selling our territories plus resources, moreso with graft and corruption. * Hello, I'm Severn Suzuki speaking for E.C.O. - The Environmental Children's Organization. We are a group of twelve and thirteen-year-olds from Canada trying to make a difference: Vanessa Suttie, Morgan Geisler, Michelle Quigg and me.

"Isn't the only hope for the planet that the industrialized nations collapse". Maurice Strong Chairman 1992 Earth Summit.
Dear Editor: While most people reading the news release in the March 29, issue of your paper "Plans announced for 8th Annual Greenovate Awards" probably didn't give it much notice, it was little more than the the promotion of Agenda 21. Agenda 21 came out of the United Nation's 1992 Earth Summit. It can be summed up by Daniel Sitarz: "Effective execution of Agenda 21 will require a profound reorientation of all human society, unlike anything the world has ever experienced- a major shift of the priorities of both governments and individuals and an unprecedented redeployment of human and financial resources." Canadian oilman and billionaire, Maurice Strong, the Grandfather of Agenda 21, regards the United States middle class as the biggest threat to the world. This is the reason why Agenda 21 it is being aggressively promoted in our country. The International Council of Local Environmental Initiative (ICLEI), founded at the UN, was set up to implement Agenda 21 at the local level. The City of Bosto ...

On November 18, 1992, a document titled "World Scientists' Warning to Humanity" was released, five months after the Earth Summit in Rio, the largest gathering of heads of state in history. It was signed by over 1600 senior scientists from 71 countries, including more than half of all living Nobel Prize winners. "Human beings and the natural world are on a collision course. Human activities inflict harsh and often irreversible damage on the environment and on critical resources. If not checked, many of our current practices put at serious risk the future that we wish for human society and the plant and animal kingdoms, and may so alter the living world that it will be unable to sustain life in the manner that we know. Fundamental changes are urgent if we are to avoid the collision our present course will bring about."

Thinking for one's self Suicide is not a species issue Luckily the dialectical reality allows for movement: there is no need for a right opinion to be static, in fact the opposite. Life is change and opinions must change too. So it is now time for me to recognise again, officialy, that actually the human species is not committing suicide. On the other hand Obama, Merkel and the OECD countries generally, sure are. We, the Group of 77 and China countries, as well Russia and the other ex-communist countries that are aptly styled 'countries in transition', are not implicated in the suicide that the OECD countries are presently committing. We were bamboozled into speaking of 'the suicide of the human race'. But no more. Since we were told to put a break on development after the Earth Summit at Rio in the name of the environment all of us did as best we could and played ball. But since then we have been delivered a series of military and poison blows from Yugoslavia to Syria to Fukushima, Iran, Libya, Sudan, Eg ...

Cullis-Suzuki was born and raised in Vancouver, British Columbia. Her mother is writer Tara Elizabeth Cullis. Her father, geneticist and environmental activist David Suzuki, is a third-generation Japanese Canadian. While attending Lord Tennyson Elementary School in French Immersion, at age 9, she founded the Environmental Children's Organization (ECO), a group of children dedicated to learning and teaching other youngsters about environmental issues. In 1992, at age 12, Cullis-Suzuki raised money with members of ECO to attend the Earth Summit in Rio De Janeiro. Along with group members Michelle Quigg, Vanessa Suttie, and Morgan Geisler, Cullis-Suzuki presented environmental issues from a youth perspective at the summit, where she was applauded for a speech to the delegates. The video has since become a viral hit, popularly known as "The Girl Who Silenced the World for 5 Minutes". In 1993, she was honoured in the United Nations Environment Programme's Global 500 Roll of Honour. In 1993 ...
"[P]roponents of the Sustainable Development policy are alarmed and working feverishly to counter our claims that such controls over local development and energy policy have their roots in international policy. In particular, our claims that these planning policies come from the United Nation’s Agenda 21, that was introduced to the world at the Earth Summit in Rio in 1992. Their most often used description of Agenda 21 is an “innocuous, 20 year old document that has no enforcement power.” Continuously we hear that local planning programs, especially from such groups like the American Planning Association (APA) have no connection to Agenda 21 or the UN. It’s all local – or as the APA says in its document, Glossary for the Public, “There is no hidden agenda.” In its “Agenda 21: Myths and Facts” document found on the APA website, the group goes to extreme measures to distance itself and its policies from Agenda 21, specifically saying “The American Planning Association has no affiliation ...

I have two families here on earth: my earthly family and my spiritual family which are you. I hope that one day my earthly family come to join us. But today I address to you, my spiritual family. Brothers and sisters, God knows all the things from which I give thanks to Him, but I want to share this with you. You know very well, that I have been really sad all this past year. My tears weren’t hidden from your sight, but only few of you really know the reason for them: God has placed me under His discipline and He has done so because I have sin. He put me on trial and I failed. I didn’t follow Abraham example. I didn’t fear the Lord, I was proud, rebellious and “tempted” Him. If I haven’t been consumed and if I’m here, writing this is for His grace and mercy. I failed (and have fail many times), but Christ obeyed till dead and again today, I say to God before you: Thank you for our Lord JesusChrist. After a tortuous path to the true gospel, after getting out from a world of misery and conf ...
(May 5, 2013) Scientists say Alaska’s Cleveland Volcano is undergoing a continuous low-level eruption. The activity began with an explosion early Saturday morning, followed by two other explosions hours later. The Alaska Volcano Observatory and U.S. Geological Survey say satellites and cameras suggest low-level emissions of gas, steam and a small amount of ash. Satellites detected highly elevated surface temperatures at the summit. The Federal Aviation Administration said there are no flight restrictions as a result. The volcano in the Aleutian Islands is 940 miles southwest of Anchorage. Its most recent significant eruption began in February 2001 and featured three explosive events that sent ash clouds as high 39,000 feet above sea level. It also produced a rubbly lava flow and hot avalanche that reached the sea.

Yet with all your beauty you're a person Like me in need of sympathy and love. Your thoughts of me would not, I dare hope, worsen If I in some way tried your heart to move. There's pleasure, surely, drawn from the reflection That someone, somewhere, worships your sweet face, Thinks you are the summit of perfection, Wants nothing more of life than your embrace. The danger is you'll think it couldn't be; So I suggest you see yourself through me.(desconheço o autor..)

Shield volcanoes are large volcanic forms with broad summit areas and low-sloping sides (shield shape) because the extruded products are mainly low viscosity basaltic lava flows. A good example of a shield volcano is the Island of Hawaii (the "Big Island"). The Big Island is formed of five coalesced volcanoes of successively younger ages, the older ones apparently extinct. Mauna Loa, one of the main volcanoes, has a higher elevation than any mountain on Earth -- 9090 meters (30,000 feet) from the floor of the ocean to its highest peak. Shield volcanoes have summit calderas formed by piston-like subsidence. Subsidence occurs when large volumes of lava are emptied from underground conduits; withdrawal of support leads to collapse. Many smaller pit craters also occur along fissure zones on the flanks of the volcanoes. These form by collapse due to withdrawal of magma along conduits.

Thanks to Kevin Bennetts for this: The Truro-Falmouth branch of Mebyon Kernow is confused by recent comments from Prince Charles at the Rio 20 Earth Summit in Mexico. In a video address to the Summit, the Duke of Cornwall warned the world about the dangers of destroying the environment saying: “We need to be much more informed about the actual state of the planet … wiping out so much of the world's vital biodiversity and removing our chances of storing carbon naturally …” Alan January, Chair of MK Truro-Falmouth Branch couldn't believe the comments. “The hypocricy of Prince Charles is unbelievable. He is the man responsible for the development to the East of Truro which will put acres of green farmland under a mass of concrete, drastically reduce the biodiversity of the area, and expand the urban sprawl of Truro even further.” Conan Jenkin, a Truro City Councillor is appalled by the duplicity of Charles' comments. “People of all shades of political opinion rallied together to fight the East ...

interessante president in Uruguay momenteel, nog niet helemaal de weg kwijt.. verder quote: 'Here are a number of interesting quotes, but I'd recommend reading the rest of the article as well: "... Uruguayan President Jose Mujica laments that so many societies consider economic growth a priority, calling it "a problem for our civilisation" because of the demands on the planet's resources. In a speech to UN Earth Summit in Rio De Janeiro last June, he insisted that "the challenge ahead of us… is not an ecological crisis, but rather a political one". Pointing to a "model of development and consumption, which is shaped after that of affluent societies", societies ruled by the dictates of the capitalist market, Mujica said it was "time to start fighting for a different culture". Arguing that the assault on the environment was a symptom of a larger disease, he asserted that "the cause is the model of civilisation that we have created. And the thing we have to re-examine is our way of life". Continue reading ...

They, meaning SEVERAL nations, have been quietly implementing this for over 20 YEARS! And the most incidious part is this is being done, to start, at the community level!

"Communio et Progressio" Just to remember the Pope, the Papal environmental legacy …..and what His Holiness Benedict XVI cherished from"communio et progressio"on the means of social communication to His most recent encyclical, Caritas in Veritate. Benedict XVI discusses the duty to protect the environment. He argues that ―Nature is at our disposal not as “a heap of scattered refuse”, the central tenet of Catholic social teaching, Care for Creation. In my opinion….I re-echo for you to spread; The world is running out of time to summon the political will necessary to solve the climate crisis. 2015 looms large as a critical year when we must act swiftly and strongly if we are to have any chance of limiting global warming to below 2 degrees C, let alone get back to the 350 parts per million of atmospheric CO2 that scientists say is necessary. The Rio+20 Earth Summit in June of 2012 was meant to be the starting point for a three year push to 2015, but the summit ended in a whimper rather than a bang. ...
Brave Politician Ann Bressington posts: In 1992 Maurice Strong, Secretary General of the UN Earth Summit and member of the Club Of Rome said: “It is clear that current lifestyles and consumption patterns of the affluent middle class involving high meat intake, consumption of large amounts of frozen and convenience foods, use of fossil fuels, ownership of motor vehicles and small electrical appliances, home and workplace air conditioning and suburban housing are not sustainable”. Put those statements together and it must become clear that Agenda 21 is about controlling every aspect of our lives – how we eat, how we move around, food production, the amount of food we eat and where we live.

By George Monbiot, published in the Guardian 1st January 2013 It was the year of living dangerously. In 2012 governments turned their backs on the living planet, demonstrating that no chronic problem, however grave, will take priority over an immediate concern, however trivial. I believe there has been no worse year for the natural world in the past half century. Three weeks before the minimum occurred, the melting of the Arctic’s sea ice broke the previous record(1). Iconic remnants of the global megafauna – such as rhinos and bluefin tuna – were shoved violently towards extinction(2). Novel tree diseases raged across continents(3). Bird and insect numbers continued to plummet, coral reefs retreated, marine life dwindled. And those charged with protecting us and the world in which we live pretended that none of it was happening. Their indifference was distilled into a great collective shrug at the Earth Summit in June. The first summit, 20 years before, was supposed to have heralded a new age of en ...
Just returning from the UN last week for the last intersessional of the UNCSD to discuss and prepare the outcome of Rio+20 Earth Summit. Women's Earth and Climate Caucus was very honored to be advocating with Women's Major Group ( WMG) colleagues. Amazing Women! With Sascha Gabizon of Women in Europe for a Common Future, Bridget Burns of WEDO, Nozipho Wright of ENERGIA, Rosa Lizarde of the Feminist Task Force and others. Read further to see one of the powerful interventions the WMG delivered to the UN delegates during intersessionals. Thank you Ms Thompson, Mr Lalonde, for this opportunity of interaction. I am Doris Mpoumou (with the International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region), and I speak on behalf of the women’s major group. We, the Women’s Major Group, are deeply concerned, about the pace and state of the negotiations of the past week. Let me reword this: we are scandalized! You have asked us to prioritize 3 points, and we want to focus on: 1. Gender equality and Women’ ...
Day 23: On June 23,2012, the long awaited Rio+20 Earth Summit came to an end. Critics called it a "complete failure."

Believe it or not, today is International Mountain Day! Yes, Mountain Day! :D The International Mountain Day strives to achieve a stronger engagement of actors/institutions and the civil society in sustainable mountain development. It is also a concrete opportunity to mobilize resources to improve the livelihoods of mountain communities. Special attention will be given to the involvement of youth in global Sustainable Development, as they will be the future actors. Additionally, the process will focus on the linkages between rural and urban development with an eye to the implementation of a green economy in line with the Rio+20 Earth Summit. Commitment and the will to advance this cause were strengthened during the International Year of Mountains in 2002, and mountains have gained an increasingly high profile on agendas at all levels. The Year also led to the adoption of resolution 57/245, in which the General Assembly designated 11 December as International Mountain Day, and encouraged the international ...

Brief on Pakistan Environmental Protection Act, 1997 Pakistan’s Environmental Policy is based on participatory approach to achieving objectives of Sustainable Development through legally, administratively and technically sound institutions. The Federal Environment Ministry was established in Pakistan in 1975 as follow up a Stockholm declaration of 1972. The Ministry was responsible for promulgation of the environmental Protection Ordinance of Pakistan in 1983. It was the first comprehensive legislation prepared in the country. The main objective of Ordinance 1983 was to establish institutions i-e to establish Federal and Provincial Environmental Protection Agencies and Pakistan Environmental Protection Council (PEPC). In 1992 Pakistan attended the Earth Summit in state of Brazil (Rio-De Janeiro) and thereafter became party to various international conventions and protocols. This political commitment augmented the environmental process in the country. Same year, Pakistan prepared National Conservation St ...

President Jonathan and the floods Written by Reuben Abati Barring any other development of equally impactful effect, the great event of the year 2012 for Nigerians would probably be the floods that submerged many communities across the country, forcing a rude awakening about the reality of climate change and Nigeria’s share of this global phenomenon. Which is ironic in one sense more than any other, for when President Jonathan travelled to Rio De Janeiro to attend the Earth Summit, known as Rio+20, in June, many had criticized him for paying attention to “an irrelevant subject.” The principal lesson lies in how Nigeria shares with the rest of the world, the increasing challenge of climate change and its consequences, described in the Rio+20 document as “an immediate and urgent global priority.” The floods were caused according to the experts by excess rainfall, which resulted in the overflooding of Rivers Benue and Niger and their tributaries, from Taraba, to Adamawa, Kogi, all the way to the st ...
Please read on from last post Diego Pacheco (photo by M Suchitra) On many occasions, Bolivaia has expressed its apprehensions about the implementation of CBD objectives. How do you view the processes of CBD? We are totally against mainstreaming biodiversity and ecosystems with a profit-oriented, pro-market approach. Natural resources are the treasures of the poor. We are against taking biological resources out of the hands of local communities and indigenous people and making natural resources mere commodities. We believe it is not right to move biodiversity conservation and its sustainable use into plain economic terms to achieve the objectives of the CBD. Are you saying that CBD has lost its track? Yes. Why should we conceal the truth? When CBD was concluded for the first time in 1992, before the Earth Summit in Rio, it was considered as something very positive for developing countries. But somewhere along the line CBD has lost its track and now its approaches for implementation of its objectives favour ...

In the Bible we are told it is our duty to seek knowledge,on the day of the vote is the most important place,other than in the Word of God,to put that knowledge to practice.When you read the books of Daniel and Revelations you know this new world order is going to happen.I believe when we vote we have to vote against anything to advance the nwo,to slow it,s progress so The Holy Spirit has more time to spread to the unbeliever.Agenda 21 is going to be inflicted on us all until The Lord calls us home and those that vote blindly are doing not only the nwo a service they are doing a disservice to their families and to those who spread the Good News.We know we can't stop them but that doesn't mean we have to aid and abet them.This paper is an example of what we are in for,believer or not it is fact!Eph.612 AGENDA 21: Here’s what it is.

Agenda 21 remains to many, classic Marxism which must be rejected—as the Alabama legislature did recently. The movement behind Agenda 21 has a long history and isn’t limited to the 1992 Rio Earth Summit. It started with the Ramsar Convention On Wetlands signed in Ramsar, Iran, in 1971.
Mit translation = Obama isn't doing a good enough job with the new world order George HW Bush signed into softlaw in 1992 at the Rio Earth Summit, and the one Clinton Signed in 1993. Mit thinks he can get there faster.

Towards Earth Summit 2002... The question that remains to be answered is whether FDI can be better targeted toward the advancement of developing and heavily indebted countries, whilst ensuring the global security of coming generations. The General Assembly Special Session “Financing for Development” (FfD) in 2001 will consider how to mobilise domestic resources, international private financial flows, international financial cooperation, trade, debt, new financial mechanisms and governance, in the context of increasing globalisation. so dear frndz it has big reason to worry about FDI in india

The monies spent on the 40 cars purchased for Osun State Abuja based "Agbero" taxi drivers, the cost of hosting the so called Earth Summit and that spent on the party loyalists Mecca and Medina trip were enough to rehabilitate the Late Bola Ige administration's Emergency and Accident Ward/Hospital uncompleted projects at Ikire. I wish Aregbesola well but the way he is going about it all is what I detest. He is not a good resource manager. Simple. He arraigned Oyinlola the other time for wasteful spending, unfortunately, he is also committing the same blunder. Let him stop his arrogant posture he inherited from Lagos political God father war Lords and do more like what the Edo State governor is doing in Edo State.
