Unsustainable UN planning in Kuala Lumpur

While many are focused on getting kids to school, themselves to work, paying bills and simply trying to live their life, too many are completely unaware that regularly (sometimes in remote areas of the world) the UN, NGOs, and partnering bureaucrats are collaborating — deciding our fate. Rooted in “Limits to Growth” and anthropogenic global warming ideology, they decide how and where we should live, what we should and shouldn’t eat, and the types of energy and transportation we should be using, for example. Then, they roll out a media campaign to the world stating “consensus” shows ”this is the future we want.” Some of the more UN elite (including current and former US politicians) regularly fly around in private jets, stay at five star hotels or private resorts eating lavish meals fit for a king, meanwhile creating “behavior change” policy so the rest of us can save planet earth. They attend UN meetings to discuss and then strategize on things like: how to limit human consumption, how to ration water, food, energy use, and how to educate lifelong learners into a “Sustainable Development” lifestyle.

Everyone SHOULD have access to these UN meetings and have a “seat at the table,” however, too many cannot afford to spend the time or money: hundreds of hours sitting in meetings, international travel and conference costs. That’s why CFACT is on it once again and sending a mystery team to cover the upcoming Kuala Lumpur UN Habitat and World Urban Forum #9 (WUF9) Conference February 7-13, 2018. Widely applauded by the “green” movement, WUF9’s major conference goal is to put into global action the New Urban Agenda (“a common vision and global standards for urban development in the coming decades” that the Obama Administration fully agreed to and so far Trump has not undone).

According to WUF9.org, the focus will be on “Cities 2030, Cities for All: Implementing the New Urban Agenda” – placing “the Forum’s focus on the New Urban Agenda as a tool and accelerator for achieving Agenda 2030 and the [UN’s] Sustainable Development Goals.” They will be discussing “Sustainable Urban Development for Social Inclusion and Ending Poverty”, “Sustainable and Inclusive Urban Prosperity and Opportunities for All”, “Environmentally Sustainable and Resilient Urban Development.” One US company out of Sacramento, CA (Mutual Housing — a low-income rental property for “migrant farm workers” subsidized by the US Department of Agriculture and US taxpayers) will receive a “green” award at WUF9. But, pouring through the extensive program, there are no posted lectures, talks, discussions or meetings on how rural areas fit into this 21st century agenda. Recall, the focus is “Cities for ALL” (emphasis on all).

Just a few thoughts to ponder:

So, what does that mean for people who don’t want to live in “Cities for All”? What if one wants a home in the country? In the city, can you have a swimming pool if you wanted one? It’s difficult not to notice that over the past few years, new building construction across the United States is eerily similar: multi-use with commercial space on the ground floor and apartment-style living above.

Is it your dream to live in an apartment and tote your groceries home on a bus or a bike?

Are you curious about how these global planners plan to “end poverty”? Does it have anything to do with you? If so, how? In the New Urban Agenda, which also seeks “social justice” (aka, evening the playing field), will everyone get paid the same whether or not they work or if they dig ditches or perform brain surgery? What would be the incentive to study for years, as a student learner, if there was no incentive or financial benefit?

The media isn’t very interested in what the UN is planning for us but we need to be. We are going to find out and can’t wait to report back to you.

    WUF9 (pronounced woof 9) is a hoot. If anyone wants to follow it, blowing by blowing, there are daily reports here:

    I see there is a climate change aspect to this nonsense:
    “URBAN DIMENSION OF CLIMATE CHANGE ACTION: Moderator William Cobbett, Cities Alliance, introduced the session, saying cities will be key to implementing the global agendas of sustainable development, climate action and the New Urban Agenda (NUA). Ministers from Botswana and Kiribati co-chaired the session.

    In a keynote, Zaini Ujang, Ministry of Energy, Green Technology and Water, Malaysia, presented his country’s Green Technology Master Plan that identifies 16 sectors as areas with high potential to transition the economy towards sustainability. He stated that to move from reform to delivery capability requires boldness and quality of execution.

    Aisa Kirabo Kacyira, UN-Habitat, identified strategies to scale up city climate action plans, including: strengthening mid-level governance; building networks of local officials such as the Global Covenant of Mayors; and providing the scientific basis for climate action through giving local officials understandable tools.

    Nonofo Molefhi, Minister of Infrastructure and Housing Development, Botswana, reiterated the call for decisive leadership and noted that the brief ‘shelf life’ of politicians leads to expedient rather than bold decisions on issues that really matter.

    Kobebe Taitai, Minister for Internal Affairs, Kiribati, said addressing climate change will involve changes in people’s social values, ethics and morals. He urged achieving ‘the bold scenario’ envisioned by the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development and the Paris Agreement on climate change.”

    Note this preposterous statement: “…addressing climate change will involve changes in people’s social values, ethics and morals.”

    Woohoo!

      What an utter waste of time and money. I’m beginning to believe that the UN is completely useless and the USA should just pull all of our funding out. Let the rest of the world support these elite idiots.
