New DVD details agenda of environmentalists pushing Agenda 21
APPLETON, WIS. – June 27, 2012 – The John Birch Society (JBS) has released a new DVD about sustainable development, “Agenda 21: How Will it Affect You?” Its release coincided with the Rio+20 United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development.
The U.N. conference marks the 20-year anniversary of the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio, when Agenda 21 was officially adopted. Lord Christopher Monckton, former science advisor to Margaret Thatcher and now chief policy advisor to the Science and Public Policy Institute, told Alex Newman from The New American in an exclusive interview Saturday that those attending a pre-conference stated they could not mention the term “Agenda 21” in the context of the environment as critics had made it into a “dirty word.” That “it was no longer fashionable, no longer cool, and we won’t be able to win the argument if we talk about the environment.”
“Agenda 21: How Will it Affect You?” explores how environmentalism came to a fork in the road with the rhetoric taking one route and an agenda taking another. Viewers will learn about this agenda and the true intentions of those pushing collective sustainable development.
The DVD is the newest education tool of The John Birch Society’s action project, “Choose Freedom, Stop Agenda 21.” The video is posted on YouTube and physical copies for media review are available by contacting Hannah Brems directly.
