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.”
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 [...]

Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow ADVISORY FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Thursday June 21, 2012 CONTACT: Russell Cook, 602-753-9141, [email protected] Rio+20: 'Sustainable development' = the new 'climate change' CFACT exposes the UN's latest ruse de guerre Shows a constructive path to rescue Rio+20 CFACT Press Conference -- Thursday, June 21, 10:30 AM, Pavilion 3, Room 8 (P3-8) (Rio de Janeiro) Having failed to secure a binding climate treaty and with the public increasingly skeptical about climate pronouncements of doom, the UN and its allied Green pressure groups hope to rebrand their multi-billion dollar eco-enterprise in Rio. “Follow the money,” said CFACT [...]
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 [...]
ADVISORY FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE: Wednesday June 20, 2012 U.S. Senator Inhofe to level strong criticism of Rio+20 – Will Ask ‘Where is President Obama?’ ABIDES Event -- Wednesday, June 20, 2 PM, Major Groups - Pavilion T (Rio de Janeiro) U.S. Senator James Inhofe will deliver an important message to the Rio+20 summit that will both answer and raise important questions. Where does the U.S. Senate stand on Rio+20? What will American policy be? What will America spend? Where is President Obama? The United States has always been a principal funder of the UN and understanding America’s policy response [...]
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!
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. Be on the lookout for our next video blog, or subscribe to our YouTube channel for instant notification.
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 [...]
If someone were to ask you to rattle off some of the not-so-pleasant thoughts that occupy your mind day to day, nagging back pain, getting the kids to soccer practice on time, your old clunker about to go kaput, or your baseball team being fifteen games back at the All-Star break might be some of the things you would mention. But whether or not there'll be enough food to buy tomorrow -- well, that's hardly something over which you or anyone you know probably loses any sleep.
