Peak Oil = Sustainable Development (Agenda 21)

For a while, I was a big believer in the peak oil theory. But once I learned about Sustainable Development, everything came into focus.

The end results of peak oil and Sustainable Development are both the same really when you simplify it, in the future there will be less oil for the world to use. But the reasons why there will be less oil is where you see the huge differences between Peak Oil and Sustainable Development.

Let's say 50 years from now, oil becomes very scarce. The price of oil goes from 90 dollars a barrel to 160 dollars a barrel. The people of every country are going to want answers. And what will the Governments and the Big oil companies of the world say? " It's not our fault, oil is tougher to come by. It's peak oil, the earth is running out of oil".

The governments of the world and the big oil companies have their excuse.....it's peak oil. No one will be held accountable.

Now, what is really going on in this country and the rest of the world is something called Sustainable Development(Agenda 21). SD is a United Nations program. They have figured out the best way to control people is to CONTROL THEIR RESOURCES. Oil isnt running out, it's being controlled...hoarded. And with Sustainable Development, it's not just oil being controlled. It's oil, water, land...etc...etc.

Think about it. The Peak Oil theory is now mainstream. Heck, it was even the main plot for one of the seasons of the hit t.v. show 24. I remember when you never heard anything about peak oil. Now, I hear something about it almost everyday.

When was the last time you heard about Sustainable Development on the news? Or read about it in Newsweek or Time magazine? Or watched Jack Bauer trying to stop it on 24? ;)

For those interested in learning more about Sustainable Development...here's a link to a two part column by attorney Michael Shaw. The title of the article is called.......""""SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT: CREATING CRISIS, SHORTAGE AND A POLICE STATE"""""

Check out North Dakota....

you won't hear the MSM talk about it, but google the Bismarck tribune. There is an oil boom going on in North Dakota, but the MSM is ignoring it, and there is a scarcity of employees.

Dunn County residents learn more about oil at Killdeer meeting
Feb 14, 2008 - 04:07:01 CST
By LAUREN DONOVAN
Bismarck Tribune
KILLDEER - Cathy Trampe, of Dunn Center, said she made a deal with her husband, Ernest: If they got an oil well out in one of their grazing pastures, they'd sell the cows.

The well came and the cows got sold, though they're still waiting for their first royalty check in the mail.

The Trampes and more than 130 others from the Dunn County area were in Killdeer on Tuesday night for a town hall meeting that was all about oil, though first and afterward it was about visiting over chips, beer and beef sandwiches in the commodious Buckskin banquet room.

There's a lot to talk about in Dunn County these days, with 13 oil rigs lighting up the night like prairie skyscrapers out there.

A lineup of speakers made it clear the well on the Trampes' land is just the tip of what could be the most sustained and lucrative oil "iceberg" in state history.

That deep iceberg of oil in the Bakken formation is situated like a horseshoe, dropped irregularly on the northwest quadrant of the state and covering more than 24,000 square miles. The Bakken's oil reserve could contain as much as 200 billion to 400 billion barrels of oil, which makes the 1.6 billion barrels produced in all of state history so far seem like a proverbial drop in the bucket.

The size of the reserve is under study by both the North Dakota Department of Mineral Resources and the U.S. Geological Survey, with the new numbers expected out in the next two months. But records for state oil production and number of new wells permitted are teetering now.

Lynn Helms, director of the mineral division, told the packed house that daily oil production will likely surpass the state's record set in 1985 by mid-year.

North Dakota, long ranked ninth among states in total oil production, is now ranked eighth ahead of Montana and could move into fifth or sixth place, he said. This year could breech the record for new well permits. That record is 1,098 permits issued in 1981.

The Bakken may take another 40 to 50 years to fully develop making it an extremely sustained oil event. Helms said the micro-porosity of the rock may make it a good candidate for enhanced recovery using carbon dioxide, rather than a water flood, when that stage comes.

Dunn County is in the heart of the best of the Bakken production so far, along with wells in Mountrail County.

Helms said the oil industry expected good production from the Bakken to spill over from Montana closer to the state line, but the surprise has been to find it further afield. That could put Mercer County in a good position for oil development as evidenced by strong interest in Mercer County when the State Land Department auctioned 21,000 mineral acres in the county two weeks ago.

"It's the march to the lake (Sakakawea)," Helms said of the oil rigs' path. "The industry believes there's Bakken potential all the way to mid-Mercer County."

Helms said oil production in Dunn and Mountrail counties is "shooting straight up." A fairly steady increase of daily oil production at around 2,000 barrels jumped up to 7,000 barrels when wells in those counties came in recent months, he said.

He said Bakken formation produces a sweet crude oil that's being "gobbled up" by Tesoro's Mandan refinery. "It's the best oil in the world," Helms said.

Mark Makelky, director of the state's Pipeline Authority, said crude oil pipelines - particularly the east-west Enbridge pipeline - are expanding capacity.

"It's not enough yet," Makelky said. Enbridge will go from 110,000 barrels capacity to 160,000 in its next expansion phase. That phase will max out the pipeline, and the next step is to build another line, he said.

All the natural gas coming off the oil wells and flaring now in Dunn and Mountrail will be eventually gathered, though there are some constraints on the smaller pipelines that feed into the main 42-inch Northern Border Pipeline that exports much of the state's gas production, Makelky said.

Ron Ness, who directs the North Dakota Petroleum Council, said the boom is back, especially in view of oil tax revenue. The state's share of oil taxes could amount to more than $600 million this biennium alone, he said.

A proposed constitutional measure will divert some of that revenue into a trust that could eventually yield $75 million a year in interest, Ness said.

Like pipelines constrain product, North Dakota's available workforce could constrain the boom. Ness said the industry needs 12,000 new and replacement workers over the next four years "to get the job done."

The North Dakota Association of Oil and Gas Producing Counties coordinated the Dunn County meeting and others still to be held.

I found this to be

a very good read. This makes sense when you think about it, after all the UN is trying to get thier grubby hands on American parks, etc. The UN is NOT our friend. When will the sheeple wake up?

Another amazing thing about Sustainable Development.......

It is taking place at the local level in most of our communities.

Here's an article from Tom DeWeese titled................

UN's AGENDA 21 TARGETS YOUR MAYOR

By Tom DeWeese
June 8, 2005

We’ve all seen the bumper stickers, “Think Globally ­ Act Locally.” It’s a creation of those who seek to impose international guidelines, rules and regulations on how we all live. Americans are about to find that it’s not just an empty slogan.

From June 1 through 5, 2005, the city of San Francisco was the site of an international conference called “World Environment Day.” But the agenda of this conference was much bigger than just another hippy dance in the park. This meeting of the global elite had a specific target and an agenda with teeth. The goal was the full implementation of the UN’s Agenda 21 policy called Sustainable Development, a ruling principle for top-down control of every aspect of our lives ­ from food, to health care, to community development, and beyond. This time, the target audience is our nation’s mayors. The UN’s new tactic, on full display at this conference, is to ignore federal and state governments and go straight to the roots of American society. Think globally ­ act locally.

As part of their participation in the conference, mayors were pressed to commit their communities to specific legislative and policy goals by signing a slate of United Nations accords. Two documents were presented for the mayors’ signature.

The first document is called the “Green Cities Declaration,” a statement of principles which set the agenda for the mayors’ assigned task. It says, in part, “Believing as Mayors of cities around the globe, we have a unique opportunity to provide leadership to develop truly sustainable urban centers based on culturally and economically appropriate local actions…” The Declaration is amazingly bold in that it details exactly how the UN intends to implement a very specific agenda in every town and city in the nation. The document includes lots of rhetoric about the need to curtail greenhouse gases and preserve resources. But the final line of the Green Cities Declaration was the point of the whole affair: “Signatory cities shall work to implement the following Urban Environment Accords. Each year cities shall pick three actions to adopt as policies or laws.”

The raw meat of the agenda is outlined in detail in the second document, called the “Urban Environment Accords.” The Accords include exactly 21 specific actions (as in Agenda 21) for the mayors to take, controlled by a time table for implementation.

Here’s a quick look at a few of the 21 agenda actions called for. Under the topic of energy, action item number one calls for mayors to implement a policy to increase the use of “renewable” energy by 10% within seven years. Renewable energy includes solar and wind power.

Not stated in the UN documents is the fact that in order to meet the goal, a community would have to reserve thousands of acres of land to set up expensive solar panels or even more land for wind mills. Consider that it takes a current 50 megawatt gas-fired generating plant about 2-5 acres of land to produce its power. Yet to create that same amount of power through the use of solar panels would require at least 1,000 acres. Using wind mills to generate 50 megawatts would require over 4,000 acres of land, while chopping up birds and creating a deafening roar. The cost of such “alternative” energy to the community would be vastly prohibitive. Yet, such unworkable ideas are the environmentally-correct orders of the days that the mayors are being urged to follow.

Energy Actions two and three deal with the issue of reducing energy consumption. Both of these are backdoor sneak attacks by the UN to enforce the discredited Kyoto Global Warming Treaty, which President Bush has refused to implement. Kyoto would force the United States to reduce its energy consumption by at least 30 percent, forcing energy shortages and severely damaging the nation’s economy. Kyoto is the centerpiece of the UN’s drive to control the world economy and redistribute wealth to Third World nations. It would do nothing to help the environment. Yet, the mayors are being pushed to help implement this destructive treaty city-by-city.

Perhaps the most egregious action offered in the Urban Environmental Accords deals with the topic of water. Action number twenty calls for adoption and implementation of a policy to reduce individual water consumption by 10% by 2020. Interestingly, UN begins by stating: “Cities with potable water consumption greater than 100 liters per capita per day will adopt and implement policies to reduce consumption by 10 percent by 2015.”

There is no basis for the 100 liter figure other than employing a very clever use of numbers to lower the bar and control the debate. One must be aware that 100 liters equals about 26 gallons per person, per day. According to the UN, each person should only have 10% less than 26 gallons each day to drink, bathe, flush toilets, wash clothes, water lawns, wash dishes, cook, and more.

According to the U.S. Geological Survey, Americans need about 100 GALLONS per day to perform these basic functions. Consider also that there is no specific water shortage in the United States. According to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, annual water withdrawal across the nation is about 407 billion gallons, while consumption (including evaporation and plant use, is about 94 billion gallons. Such restrictions, as outlined in the Urban Environment Accords, are really nothing more than a major campaign by the UN to control water consumption. Yet the nation’s mayors are being pushed to impose policies to take away our free use of water.

The rest of the Accords deal with a variety of subjects including waste reduction, recycling, transportation, health, and nature. Perhaps the most blatant promise of action is Action number sixteen in which the mayors are supposed to agree to: “Every year identify three products, chemicals, or compounds that are used within your city that represents the greatest risk to human health and adopt a law to eliminate their sale and use in the city.”

There you have it. Every year, our nation’s mayors are to promise to ban something! What if there isn’t a “chemical or compound” that poses a risk? Gotta ban something anyway. That’s not an idle threat. In the 1990’s Anchorage, Alaska had some of the most pristine water in the nation. It had no pollution. Yet the federal government ordered the city to meet strict federal clean water standards that required it to remove a certain percentage of pollution. In order to meet those requirements, Anchorage was forced to dump fish parts into its pristine water so that it could then clean out the required quotas. Your city’s mayor may have to ban the ink in your fountain pen to meet his quota ­ and ban it he will.

And what is the mayor’s reward for destroying private property rights, increasing energy costs on less consumption, and banning something useful every year? He gets green stars. That’s right. According to UN documents, if your mayor can complete 8-11 of the prescribed 21 actions, the town will get a green star and the designation, “Local Sustainable City.” 12-17 actions completed will garner two green stars and the designation, “National Sustainable City.” 15-18 actions completed will bring in three green stars and the title “Regional Sustainable City.” Finally, the energizer bunny mayor who gets 19-21 actions completed will get a full four green stars and the ultimate designation of “Global Sustainable City.” Certainly he or she will also get a plaque and get to sit at the head table at the next UN Sustainable Development conference.

In the San Francisco summit, the mayors were wooed by the elite, from UN Secretary General Kofi Annan to Maurice Strong, to Senator Diane Feinstein, to Hollywood activists Robert Redford and Martin Sheen, to chimp-master Jane Goodall. All the usual suspects were there to press the flesh and push the agenda. Businesses like Mitsubishi, which hope to make huge profits from green industry by using such policy to destroy competition, helped pay for the event. The news media was well represented too, not in a journalistic role to report the news, but as full-fledged sponsors helping to spread their own brand of propaganda. All understood that a new governing elite, elected by no one, answerable to their own set of standards, is being created for the care and feeding of us all. With the right contacts and the proper show of public spirit, there are riches and power to be created. Even for your local mayor.

Sustainable Development is truly stunning in its magnitude to transform the world into feudal-like governance by making nature the central organizing principle for our economy and society. It is a scheme fueled by unsound science and discredited economics that can only lead modern society down the road to a new dark ages. It is a policy of banning goods and regulating and controlling human action. It is systematically implemented through the creation of non-elected visioning boards and planning commissions. There is no place in the Sustainable world for individual thought, private property or free enterprise. It is the exact opposite of the free society envisioned by this nation’s founders.

Even before the San Francisco conference, the UN’s influence over the nation’s mayors has been felt as 132 U.S. mayors have moved to implement the Kyoto Treaty in defiance of the Bush Administration’s rejection of it. Moreover, the treaty is the centerpiece of the agenda for the national meeting of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, slated for Chicago just one week after the San Francisco meeting. Think globally and act locally is no longer just a slogan on the back of a Volvo. It’s a well entrenched national policy bleeding down into your local community, carried there by Judas goats who have been elected by you.

America’s mayors are the elected representatives closest to the people. They are the ones that our founders intended to have the most influence over our daily lives. If the UN succeeds in its efforts to enforce Sustainable Development policy through our mayors, the process will accelerate at an astounding rate and locally-controlled government will cease to exist. But signs, adorned with green stars, will certainly greet us at every city limit line as the inhabitants, stripped of their property rights; buried under huge tax burdens; struggling under reduced energy flow, shuffle on as their proud mayor gleams in the global limelight under the banner “think globally and act locally.”
