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 [...]
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.
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.
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 [...]
Yesterday was our first day attending the Rio+20 pre-conference, and boy did we have an interesting time! The radical Greens are out in force, calling for rights for "Mother Earth" and for billing individuals, governments and corporations for their eco-debt. Watch the video to see what CFACT has been up to at this conference. CFACT is back at the conference today as well, documenting the radical policies they want to impose on you through their "The Future We Want" document.

If you want to learn what farmers think (and need), talk to African farmers – not to bureaucrats, environmental activists or politicos at the Rio+20 United Nations summit in Rio de Janeiro. You’ll get very different, far more honest and thoughtful perspectives.
If you want to learn what farmers think (and need), talk to African farmers – not to bureaucrats, environmental activists or politicos at the Rio+20 United Nations summit in Rio de Janeiro. You’ll get very different, far more honest and thoughtful perspectives. The recent (May 24) Food, Agriculture and Natural Resources Policy Analysis Network conference in Pretoria, South Africa brought together delegates from agricultural communities in many African countries. FANRPAN’s primary objective is to improve food security in Africa, by ensuring that small-scale farmers can become more productive. Their obvious enthusiasm and commonsense views were heartening. FANRPAN chair Sindiso Ngwenya of [...]
The future we dread: Marked-up draft of UN Rio+20 agenda reveals shocking “sustainability” wish list
Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Tuesday, June 12, 2012 CONTACT: Russell Cook, 1-602-753-9141, [email protected] The future we dread Marked-up draft of UN Rio+20 agenda reveals shocking “sustainability” wish list. An American family of four could owe the UN $1,325 per year. The United Nations plans to make its Rio+20 Sustainable Development Conference “the most significant environmental conference in history.” A draft planning and agenda document, “The Future We Want,” marked-up by myriad ultra-liberal NGOs, provides an unvarnished look at what lurks behind Rio+20. “Americans, their free world partners and people in developing nations who hope to lift themselves [...]
C F A C T Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow ADVISORY FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Friday, June 8, 2012 CONTACT: Russell Cook 602-753-9141 [email protected] What's not to like about sustainable development? For starters, UN Rio+20 Conference threatens people, prosperity, and nature too. CFACT will be there: exposing, debunking and offering constructive solutions. Rio+20 is the next, huge, misguided, harmful Green push. Radical environmentalists hope the Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development can carry on where climate change left off (after the public saw through the propaganda). It is the same agenda, the same exaggerated crises and cataclysms, the same anti-hydrocarbon, anti-development [...]
