Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Environmental attorney Sitarz has abridged the 900-page plan of action formulated at the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro, and adopted by 172 nations, to make it accessible to general readers. The document offers a bold, impressive and comprehensive program to promote economic growth and protect the environment at the same time. Each chapter addresses a specific problem, suggests activities to combat it, then estimates probable costs and possible methods of financing. Among the subjects: the quality of life, use of natural resources, energy efficiency and development, management of human settlements, chemical and waste management, sustainable economic growth. This ambitious agenda will require unprecedented international cooperation at every level of government, and citizen involvement. It provides a blueprint for civilization in the next century, well worth our attention today. $20,000 ad/promo . ( Apr.

Format: Paperback
This wordy book on the 1992 Earth Summit was a reading requirement for a class I once took. Most people in the class did not finish it. Although the book presents several interesting ideas and important policy directives for global environmental problems, it loses the reader with overstated details. The ideas and goals presented look good on paper, but leave you scratching your head after reading them, asking yourself "how?" However, this is a must-read for anyone interested in the history of global environmental discussions and policy.

This book describes a UN Agenda to transform America and the world. This transformation has been implemented over the last twenty years since 1992 Rio Summit. Through the President's Council on Sustainable Development, ICLEI, the American Planning Assoc. and every college planning curriculum. By funneling federal dollars through unelected "regional" board down to local jurisdictions, this agenda for "Sustainable Development" has been insinuated into every city and town in America. You can see it everywhere, smart growth, mixed use transit oriented developments, public private partnerships, bike lanes, walkable communities, light rail, these are all Agenda 21 buzz words. This book describes it all. I recommend one of the books like Behind the Green Mask by Rosa Koirie that untangles the weasel words and their implications for this country. Agenda 21 Is a sovereignty vampire. George Bush Sr signed us onto Agenda 21 in 1992. He's very found of the concept of the New World Order. This is basically it

When I first was told about Agenda 21 I was curious to find what it was. This idealistic is not for the Constitutional United States. I recommend this book to understand the undermining of of our idealistic life.

Too my chagrin- I discovered that this was a re-write of the original. At least that is what I assessed after having read some of the original before- At the time of purchase, I had thought that they had just changed the cover. However, I do think it was valuable to assess some of the United Nations agenda- however lacking in the original content it seemed.

Ever since the 1950s people like Paul Ehrlich, and now this author, have predicted the destruction of the Earth because of human civilization. Ehrlich predicted the collapse of agriculture, the destruction of the oceans, mass starvation, and the disintegration of civilization as roving bands of people fought over food and water. All of Ehrlich's predictions were wrong. All of Al Gore's predictions will be proved wrong. In ten years intelligent people will laugh at books like Agenda 21.
