The RIO conferences began in 1992, as the Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro. Convened by the original international green loon Maurice Strong, who also co-authored the ‘RIO’ concept as part of the Club of Rome. The latest conference, the 20th, is due next year. However, his original RIO document was coined as an acronym for ‘Reshaping the International Order’. Was it co-incidental that he organise the first conference in Rio de Janeiro, or a way to bury the real agenda.
- Unelected supranational governments and institutions – that’s what Rio is about.
- Control of Food on a global scale – that’s what Rio is about.
- Control of Money and Finances – that’s what Rio is about.
- Reshaping Public Opinion on a global scale – that’s what Rio is about.
- Changing ‘National Sovereignty’ into ‘Functional Sovereignty’ – that’s what Rio is about.
- International Marxism, International Socialism, International Communitarianism – that is what RIO is REALLY about.
I republished the original RIO agenda last week, take time to read through the 6 part postings, if you want to understand where Strong & his cohorts want you to end up, which is one of the global resources called workers, assigned their roles in life by central planning committees, or dead, surplus to global requirements. Strong is not shy in coming forward with these views, or this earlier work – “The First Global Revolution” (1991) published by the Club of Rome. Members of the Club of Rome include: Al Gore, Jimmy Carter, Bill Gates, George Soros and author of the Kyoto Protocols Maurice Strong.
Since a 2004 agreement between the EU and UN, the EU has funded many projects at a cost of many millions of Euro. That original agreement has just been renewed and now the EU is officially on the bandwagon, and about to give billions of your taxes to the UN to help make it happen, whether you agree with it or not.
Using ‘environmental’ concerns as the vehicle, the objective is for global control over work, industry, energy, food supply, populations and money.
However, back to Rio+20:
In recent years, the European Commission and the United Nations Environment Programme (UNEP) have been working together for the environment under a Memorandum of Understanding agreed in 2004.
This cooperation has been translated into several activities, programmes and projects in areas of common concern. EU funds have been channelled through the Thematic Programme for Environment and Sustainable Management of Natural Resources including Energy (ENRTP), the European Development Fund and the Instrument for Stability.
Over the past three years, these funds have provided UNEP with some €50 million to implement 59 projects ranging from chemicals to global biodiversity.
EU Environment Commissioner Janez Potočnik and UNEP Executive Director Achim Steiner signed a wide-ranging new partnership agreement yesterday (23 February) “aimed at furthering sustainable development in the 21st Century”.
As global discussions on greening the economy intensify, the joint EC-UN statement on a new 2011-2013 strategy signals a novel approach for more strategic international programming, rather than cooperation on individual projects on a case-by-case basis.
The European Commission’s new approach is “a pilot test” for environmental funding where the EU executive will pass a financial envelope to UNEP. An agreement on the amounts should be reached by mid-2011.
The strategy has three priority areas for cooperation: environment for development, strengthening environmental governance and climate change.
We need to understand that the Rio Conferences, as wacky, pointless and stupid as they are having produced the infamous Agenda 21, the Rio Declaration on Environment and Development, the Statement of Forest Principles, the United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change and the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity, and the Kyoto Treaty, are nothing more than a cover for something far more sinister, the original RIO – Reshaping the International Order.
If Rio20 is so important, ask yourself this. Have you ever seen a green job, and if so, have you ever seen one that is self sustainable. Hmm, thought not.
Pay attention people, before history begins to repeat itself, but this time on a global scale unimaginable.
