“Sustainable justice” = redistribution of scarcity

Presidential candidate Barack Obama promised that his Administration would “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” He gave a clue to exactly what he had in mind when he told now-congressional candidate Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher: “When you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.”

Press conference: CFACT’s Mission Rio, Watch now!

The Rio+20 version of "sustainable development" would devastate the world's poor. CFACT rebuked the UN, environmental groups, and Rio+20 delegates for attempting to force their dreadful version of the future on the world. Highlights include Senator James Inhofe addressing the Earth Summit via video; Lord Christopher Monckton explaining that sustainable development is about the radical left's wishlist not the environment; Climate Depot's Marc Morano arguing that sustainable development should be redefined as coal, oil and natural gas; journalist Magnus Gudmundsson's presentation about Greenpeace propaganda; and CFACT President David Rothbard defending political and economic freedom as the only true path towards all [...]

Mission Rio picked up by National Review’s Planet Gore

Keep an eye on National Riview Online's "Planet Gore" for more updates from CFACT's Mission Rio. Planet Gore Twenty years after the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, environmentalists and U.N. bureaucrats are back in Brazil. After a decade of railing about gloubal-warming climate-change “tipping points” — which were always just around the corner, but never arrived — they have changed their tune once again. Now they say the “real threats” involve sustainable development, biodiversity, and widespread species extinction. In Rio, they are hosting the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development — seeking greater power to control national, state, community, and [...]

Can you define sustainability? ICLEI can’t…

The International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) insists we embrace "sustainable development" to save the planet. But when CFACT asked ICLEI members at their "World Congress" in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, we got more "umms" and "uhhs" than anything else!

“Sustainable Justice” á la Rio+20

PAUL DRIESSEN & DUGGAN FLANAKIN Presidential candidate Barack Obama promised that his Administration would “fundamentally transform the United States of America.” One clue to what he meant was his comment to now-congressional candidate Joe “The Plumber” Wurzelbacher: “When you spread the wealth around, it’s good for everybody.” Not necessarily – especially when activists, regulators, politicians and ruling elites do all they can to ensure there is less and less wealth to spread around. Just this week, the Civil Society Reflection Group on Global Development Perspectives released a new report to the United Nations Rio+20 Earth Summit on Sustainable Development. The executive [...]

Sustainability = Pick Your Favorite Leftist Cause

Mission Rio - Day 5 As the first full day of the 2012 ICLEI “World Congress” kicked off, my goal was to listen and learn. In any war, intel on the enemy’s strategies is crucial to success. So with dozens of workshops filled with panels of the world’s foremost “sustainable living” experts there was no better way to truly get the inside scoop on the who, what, when, where, and why of this “crisis.” After all, ICLEI is the organization that literally started the sustainability movement and has implemented sustainability measures in over 1,200 cities in the world. I am here [...]

ICLEI Members Admit “Bait and Switch” to Boost Climate Agenda

Belo Horizonte, Brazil. To advance public action on global warming, participants attending the ICLEI World Congress admitted today that they are deliberately employing new terminology to misdirect opponents and gain acceptance of their efforts to reduce energy use and greenhouse gases. By utilizing terms like “sustainability” and “sustainable development,” the group wants to mask its objectives and disarm would-be critics who might otherwise oppose their agenda, ICLEI attendees confided with CFACT representatives at the conference.

UN’s threat to biodiversity: CFACT — Washington Times

Thousands of politicians, bureaucrats and environmental activists have gathered in Rio de Janeiro for the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development, which runs through Friday. This time, 20 years after the original 1992 Rio Earth Summit, delegates are minimizing references to “dangerous man-made climate change” to avoid repeating the acrimony and failures that came from the United Nations‘ recent climate conferences in Copenhagen; Cancun, Mexico; and Durban, South Africa.

Champagne Flows as Enviros Demand Lower Living Standards

The International Council on Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) is calling for economic "contraction" in America and the rest of the developed world. Their "World Congress" conference in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, however, is a lavish affair replete with rich food, champagne and opulence. The blatant hypocrisy is stunning.

The Most Powerful Local Environmental Initiative Group You’ve Probably Never Heard of

Out of the frying pan and into the fryer.  ICLEI, the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives.  Imagine a large international organization that influences and implements environmental policies locally in over 1,200 cities worldwide.  Well, say hello to ICLEI.  Today, I took a flight from Rio to the city of Belo Horizonte to attend the 2012 World Congress that is put on by these sustainability doom and gloomers. It is truly shocking when you learn just how many internationally, well-funded, groups exist out there whose expressed purpose is to implement environmental rules and regulations about the environment.  The scariest part is [...]

A.K.’s Report: From the Trenches Day 3

Two words: Civil Society.  One meaning: Socialism.  Day three was a day that will be now known in my political world as the day that will live in infamy.  Throughout the day, we went to six events held by groups known as the Civil Society.  All you need to know is that the vast majority of these groups are truly radical, unabashed leftists.   The worse part, they actually get to sit at the table and have a say in resolutions and drafts that will affect our lives in subtle and not so subtle ways. "We should flesh out the idea of [...]

Socialism, taxes & Castro: Mission Rio+20 Day 2

Is Fidel Castro your eco-hero? Do you think we need confiscatory taxation, wealth transfers and socialism? Are you prepared to change your lifestyle and live as Greens gathered in Rio de Janeiro decide? If Europe is not sufficiently progressive and needs to shift further left, what are they planning for the United States? We're still at the planning conference for major groups. This weekend, 45,000 more people are traveling to this UN summit. It is hard to imagine what we are seeing and hearing multiplied by that kind of magnitude, but that is what's coming. Take a look at our video [...]
