I read with interest Terri Lovell’s column in the March 20 paper. I have been following Agenda 21 for a number of years and Terri’s letter was spot-on. Glenn Beck published a book, “Agenda 21” in 2012, which I have. Agenda 21 is all about turning over our sovereignty to the U.N. and giving up our freedoms for the sake of the environment.
In the late 1990s, the Sierra Club had as their goal to take us out of our automobiles by 2025 because fossil fuels were causing global warming. In the San Francisco Bay Area they had what was called One Bay Area. Its purpose was to take us all out of our autos, put everyone in stack-and-pack housing next to public transportation and bring low-income people into wealthy suburban areas to be fair.
Oh, and those communities could be given the privilege of deciding where the low-income housing could be. So nice of these unelected bureaucrats, after all, we have to be fair.
Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s Green New Deal is right out of Agenda 21 and would bankrupt this country and turn it into a socialist utopia — everyone equally miserable. Americans must be very leery of the unobtainable promises of socialism and educate themselves about Agenda 21.
