Agenda 21 was an idea environmentalists thought up to leave the earth a better place than they found it for the 21st Century. Many years ago extremists flipped this idealistic pipe dream over and turned it into Earth Day Gone Wild. If implemented as designed, national sovereignty and private property rights will disappear forever, and a tight set of controls will remain - forced down your throat by a more knowledgeable elite. Those who resist this form of rigid control are called Agenda 21 Enders, or Agenders.
They are certainly not ‘The Avengers,’ but who are the Agenders? Dr. Ileana Johnson Paugh, in a post entitled ’Agenders’ and Right Wing Conspirators, on the Canada Free Press web site on Feb. 12, 2012, examined an article written by Andrew Cohen (no relation) in The Atlantic about a week earlier. She accurately pointed out that Mr. Cohen, like most Agenda 21 supporters, completely misrepresented not only U.N. Agenda 21, but why many oppose it. In his piece, Is the UN Using Bike Paths to Achieve World Domination?, Andrew Cohen implied the Agenders are extremists. In fact, they are not out of the main stream, but informed citizens. Many Americans will not stand for the radical U.N. rules (termed ‘guidelines’) which, if ever set in stone, would remove many freedoms we take for granted. We, too, love our planet, but we don’t agree with the ‘save the earth - or die’ mentality. That is what is too extreme for us.
Mr. Andrew Cohen, it's not the science or stewardship of the earth we oppose. It's the politicization of the environmental movement. For example, if the earth is warming, great, we can all agree if the evidence presents itself. But scientists who tell us it's man-made have already manipulated their statistics to support a favorite outcome. Why? It’s due to politics, but as odd as it may seem, this is not a left-right issue!
A few years ago, some reporters revealed in secret e-mails that global warming scientists in Europe admitted exaggerating / making up data to prove their points. The fact that their goal is more important than science is what makes it political. Look at the people who profit from selling items from the scare. Al Gore is one who spoke against large carbon footprints. Yet, videos surfaced showing him boarding private jets, which ‘exhale’ many times the carbon per person than commercial flight. Why do the alarmists use these gas guzzlers? Perhaps they don't believe that carbon as a poison, either, especially if they have to sacrifice, too!
