Following in the footsteps of officials in other states, lawmakers in Texas introduced legislation that would prohibit some state and local government participation in the deeply controversial United Nations “sustainability” scheme known as Agenda 21. With bills targeting the UN program introduced in both houses of the legislature and outrage about Agenda 21 still growing across Texas and the nation, activists and lawmakers are hopeful that the state will succeed in protecting property rights, self-government, and economic freedom from the Obama administration-backed UN scheme. However, elements of the establishment media and UN-loving forces in Texas and beyond have already made clear that they intend to fight back.
This may be only the beginning exposure of long-simmering scadals at the UN agency. Rajendra Pachauri, longtime chairman of the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), resigned Tuesday amid sexual assault and stalking charges, faces possible arrest.
As climate-change skeptics say global warmists are like a religious cult, UN clilmate boss Pachauari admitted in his resignation letter that his anti-CO2 crusade is a "religion."
As expected, President Obama has exercised his first of likely a number of vetoes now that he faces a Republican Congress. On Tuesday, Obama vetoed the Republicans’ Keystone XL pipeline bill, setting the stage for an override vote that has little hope of passing.
