"Sustainability"

by Jerry Bader

For many years the American left and MSM have succeeded in painting as fringe those who warned of the dangers of Agenda 21. Specifically, when conservatives would argue that just about every liberal policy, universal health care, global warming, "smart growth," were all part of the Agenda 21 strategy. Well, perhaps this story will convert a few non-believers.


Their focus would be on meeting “sustainability challenges” in a broad and overlapping number of areas ranging from “natural resource domains (air, fresh water, coastal oceans, land, forests, soil, etc.), built environments (urban infrastructure such as drinking water and waste water systems, transportation systems, energy systems), and the social aspects of complex human systems (such as public health, economic prosperity, and the like).”

In other words, matters that touch upon just about everything in the U.S. -- perhaps the ultimate in government mission creep.
