ICLEI: Invasive UN Treaty in 600 American Cities

There are over 600 US cities that are members of ICLEI, the International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, now known as Local Governments for Sustainability. ICLEI institutes the UN Convention on Biological Diversity treaty that was withdrawn from a vote on the Senate floor in 1994, so the treaty, designed for UN control, is being implemented in cities.
Here’s the description of the program from ICLEI’s own website:
Our programs, and projects promote participatory, long-term, strategic planning process that address local sustainability while protecting global common goods. This approach links local action to internationally agreed-upon goals and targets such as:
the Rio Conventions:
The UN Framework Convention on Climate Change,
The UN Convention on Biological Diversity,
ICLEI has many carbon reduction schemes that seem harmless, but ICLEI uses small steps to accomplish its goals. Last week Colorado Gubernatorial candidate Dan Maes warned that ICLEI is a UN plot for control at a rally in Denver, which is an ICLEI city. It made international headlines and some people scoffed because Maes used the bicycling program as an example. ICLEI does have programs to limit transportation. Maes’ opponent in the Governor’s race is John Hickenlooper, the Mayor of Denver and he is a ‘Cool Mayor’, which is a facet of an ICLEI program used to execute CO2 reduction. Hickenlooper is a supporter of CO2 reduction. CO2 reduction encourages depopulation.
Watch this short video from a 350.org Climate Change rally in Denver less than a year ago where NOAA scientist advocates “doing whatever we can to reduce population”. The crowd responded by cheering!
