500 Mayors, municipal decision makers and experts from universities and international organizations from all continents met for Resilient Cities 2010, the first world congress on the adaptation of cities to the impacts of Climate Change, organized by ICLEI-Local Governments for Sustainability, the World Mayors Council on Climate Change and the City of Bonn.
That’s really great. Since our Congress cannot seem to protect us from anything, we might as well substitute a new World Congress instead. Does anybody else feel like we are living in the Star Wars 3 movie?
Konrad Otto-Zimmermann, Secretary General of ICLEI, commended Congress participants for making the event a success, but said there is a need for connections with leaders in other sectors. “The well-established disaster risk community and those who work in climate change need to work together to accelerate adaptation in cities,” he said. “We need to strengthen this movement of ‘adaptationists.’”
Can that statement be translated: The ICLEI boots on the ground , and their partners who are pushing for world governance in the name of “sustainable development”, should begin co-opting Sherrif , Fire, Police, SWAT, FBI, SBI, ATF, Coast Guard, National Guard…etc. to help “accelerate adaption” of Agenda 21? Does that not cover the disaster risk community? ICLEI clearly states on their website that one of their goals is the implentation of Agenda 21.
Do you agree with the goals of ICLEI or Agenda 21? If you live in Asheville, Carrboro, Cary, Chapel Hill, Charlotte, Chatham County, Durham, Orange County, Raleigh, or Winston-Salem apparently you do. Or at least your city council, mayor, or county commissioners do because these cities are all members of ICLEI. ICLEI is an accredited NGO for the United Nations Council on Sustainable Developmet, the commission who wrote Agenda 21.
Gaspee contacted Cyrus Bhedwar the ICLEI Regional Director in the Southeast Regional Office in Atlanta for clarification of Mr. Zimmerman’s statement, but as of the posting he has not responded.
