Have you wondered why your children lecture you about the environment and where they get their misinformation? The answer is critical to fulfilling your parental responsibility to rightly educate your children and to protect them from a cruel scheme.
You need look no further than the United Nations as the source of fanatic environmental views using labels like "sustainable development" and "global warming/climate change" in treaties and action plans that trickle down into every classroom and into every level of government â€” national, state and local.
Under the guise of protecting the environment through "sustainable development," the UN is leading the world's regression to primitive reverence of the earth, even capitalizing the first letter of the word: Earth. This same earth-centeredness prevailed before Abram was called from the Ur of the Chaldees, until the God of Abraham, Isaac and Jacob proved His superiority over nature. Our Western Civilization is based upon this Judeo-Christian worldview that sets man apart from bugs and trees, and gives him the responsibility to care for the earth.
The proposed UN treaty to give rights to "Mother Earth" as well as other environmental treaties are fatally flawed because they equate God with nature, and aim to supplant God's directive to man to care for the earth with government dominion.
Earth-centered "sustainable development" was first introduced at the UN's 1987 "World Commission on Environment and Development," and carried forth in its 1992 "Earth Summit" that produced an action plan called "Agenda 21." "Sustainable development" is bad policy because it supplants liberty with a framework of rules and regulations that grant government dominion over the behavior of individuals, businesses and organizations.
In 1993, former President Bill Clinton's Executive Order created the President's Council on Sustainable Development that has rammed Agenda 21's radical environmental agenda into every classroom and every level of American government. Even though the PCSD sunset in 1999, government grants have kept it alive.
The following lyrics of "Earthlings Unite" are not educational, but an example of classroom abuse: More: http://www.eagleforum.org/un/2011/11-05-12.html
