Why you need to know this
Agenda 21 is a two-decade old, grand plan for global ’Sustainable Development,’ brought to you from the United Nations. George H.W. Bush (and 177 other world leaders) agreed to it back in 1992, and in 1995, Bill Clinton signed Executive Order #12858, creating a Presidential Council on ‘Sustainable Development.’ This effectively pushed the UN plan into America’s large, churning government machine without the need for any review or discussion by Congress or the American people.
‘Sustainable Development’ sounds like a nice idea, right? It sounds nice, until you scratch the surface and find that Agenda 21 and Sustainable Development are really cloaked plans to impose the tenets of Social Justice/Socialism on the world.
At risk from Agenda 21;
- Private Property ownership
- Single-Family homes
- Private car ownership and individual travel choices
- Privately owned farms
The Agenda 21 plan openly targets private property. For over thirty-five years the UN has made their stance very clear on the issue of individuals owning land;
Land… cannot be treated as an ordinary asset, controlled by individuals and subject to the pressures and inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership is also a principal instrument of accumulation and concentration of wealth and therefore contributes to social injustice; if unchecked, it may become a major obstacle in the planning and implementation of development schemes. The provision of decent dwellings and healthy conditions for the people can only be achieved if land is used in the interest of society as a whole.
There are two more, very good reasons to be wary of Agenda 21 and the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI) that supports it: George Soros and the United Nations. Soros money has been tracked to funding parts of ICLEI ;
As regards the UN, that organization‘s problems with America’s appreciation of freedom and self-determination is one that needs no explanation.
Currently in California, Agenda 21 is working to implement plans to create plans for sustainable management of ‘open spaces.‘ The definition of what is to be considered an ’open space’ has sparked some heated exchanges between those directing the planning meetings and citizens who want private property rights to be respected and protected. (The East Bay Tea Party video featuring a Liberal Democrat arguing against ICLEI can be seen at the end of this article.)
This type of global plan could not be implemented without a large and well-funded group pushing through its priorities. For that, Agenda 21 has the International Council of Local Environmental Initiatives (ICLEI). And ICLEI is deeply entrenched in America;
ICLEI USA was launched in 1995 and has grown from a handful of local governments participating in a pilot project to a solid network of more than 600 cities, towns and counties actively striving to achieve tangible reductions in greenhouse gas emissions and create more sustainable communities. ICLEI USA is the domestic leader on climate protection and adaptation, and sustainable development at the local government level.
Over six hundred cities,towns and counties in America are members of ICLEI? Do you support your local government agreeing to rules and regulations set up by a UN-based organization that wants private property transferred to government control? If you would like to see if your community is a member of ICLEI, you can visit their website.

Together with Ulstein Sea of Solutions, NLI are now well established in the derrick and drilling market and have developed an integrated derrick with drill floor system for installation on vessel decks.
Models of the Northern Light derrick concept
“This type of drilling package is a familiar product on the global market, but this concept is unique in that it involves an integrated system providing several benefits and enhanced working conditions”, says Marketing Director Sigve Barvik at NLI.
The derrick system is equipped with cables and pipes integrated within its rear legs. This greatly reduces equipment maintenance requirements. A lift is installed in one of the front legs which can stop at six different levels – making it easier for workers to gain access with equipment during servicing. The system thus also enhances the safety of deck operatives. A further major benefit is that the upper derrick structure is retractable, allowing the vessel to pass below bridges without the need to dismantle any of the equipment.
The new derrick system is called Northern Light and was unveiled at the OTC oil expo in Houston in May this year. NLI and Ulstein showcased a physical model of the system at OTC, and the new concept attracted considerable attention. Several companies have already expressed an interest in the new concept and we will be following up these enquiries closely.
”We believe this system will make a big breakthrough in the global market”, says Barvik. “There are several competitive advantages in building a complete and integrated derrick. There are major advantages to a derrick with drill floor that can be hoisted on board a vessel in one lift, fully tested and ready for use”, he concludes.
