The globalist design for micro-apartments is being championed by New York’s Mayor Michael Bloomberg. These “studio and one-bedroom apartments” will be no bigger than 275 to 300 sq ft. These tiny living spaces are smaller than currently allowed by building regulations, according to a statement by Bloomberg’s office; however the zoning regulations will be waived in over to construct the first of many compact pack ‘em and stack ‘em housing model in the city-owned area of Kips Bay.
The intention is to construct an area in NY that accommodates restricted housing space, eliminates car use in favor for walking and bicycling and promotes mass transit. Herding the expanding population into dense areas will smaller living spaces will instill the new class of poor and obligate their psychological transition toward accepting the Agenda 21 megacity concept .

The California Senate has passed bill 21 – 16 that implements the financing for a high speed rail line across the Central Valley. The new law will require selling $4.5 in bonds to build this railway. They will also receive $3.2 billion in federal government stimulus.
The high speed railway will link to transportation lines.
Senator Joe Simitian said on the Senate floor: “I think high-speed rail makes sense in California … but we’re not being asked to vote on a vision today, we’re being asked to vote on a particular plan. Regrettably, the only conclusion I can come to today is that this is the wrong plan in the wrong place in the wrong time.”
Supporters of the bill claim that it would create jobs and promote public transit to protect the environment.
The high speed railway is the brainchild of America 2050, a non-governmental organization that supports Agenda 21 policies in the US. California Governor Jerry Brown and the California High-Speed Rail Authority “are to be commended on the revised 2012 draft business plan for high-speed rail, which cuts the project’s cost by $30 billion while making numerous improvements to previous proposals.”
Robert Yaro, co-chairman of America 2050 said: “Not only does this plan reduce the project cost substantially; it provides a new phasing strategy that will bring the benefits of high-speed rail to Californians more quickly.”
America 2050 claims that the railway will provide more trains to the growing population in California between San Francisco Bay and the Los Angeles Basin. They propose this endeavor is necessary to “close the gap” between Northern and Southern California.

There is an estimated 366 million, trillion gallons of water on planet Earth. That number appears to be fixed, according to UNESCO’s Intergovernmental Council of the International Hydrological Program (HIP). The alarmist threat of man-made climate change states that where and how this water manifests itself in hydraulic flux across our biosphere is questionable.
The HIP are a UN program system devoted to researching and finding natural water resources and managing those resources found. While the UN is well aware that the necessity of water as a vital source for life means the retention of power over all life, they are well into their schemes to develop global governance over all sources of fresh, clean water.
The IPCC document HS 15332 Climate Change Impacts: Securitization of Water, Food, Soil, Health, Energy and Migration explains how the UN plans to secure resources to use at their disposal. Through the International Monetary Fund (IMF) underdeveloped countries are forced to sell their resources to the global Elite as “full cost recovery” to the global central bankers. Once those resources are under the complete control of the IMF they become assets to be reallocated back to the enslaved nations for a price.
This scheme makes water sources under central privatization cost more and become less accessible to those who desperately need it. Water prices rise while the quality of it diminishes. This forces natives in places like South Africa and India to collect water from polluted streams and rivers, which compromises their health. The cycle in complete when those who had their water stolen from them through coercion die from contaminated water that they were forced to use.

Agenda 21 wants to, among other things, bring the American lands back to rewilding.
The non-governmental organization (NGO) The Wildlands Project (WP) is a focusing of the American landscape in preservation for “future generations to inherit a continent rich in wildlife, with plenty of room for all species to roam.”
This does not necessarily mean that there will be room for humans as we are seeing massive areas of land being placed under restrictions called “conservation easements”, “scenic byways”, “protected areas”, “biosphere reserves”, “wildlife refuges”, etc. The names are varied and plentiful, but the result is always the same: More government control; less human freedom.
The WP claims we are “experiencing the Sixth Great Extinction” because of “human population growth, climate change, resource extraction, new recreational technologies, habitat fragmentation”. Since humanity is not a “highly interactive species” (meaning species whose presence maintains the balance of other plant and animal species with the habitat they share) “we are running out of room to share with nature”.
The science-based agenda of WP has developed the solution of dividing up North America into “four Continental Wildways [of] large protected corridors of land running coast to coast . . . throughout Canada, the US and Mexico.” Agenda 21 explains why the North American Union is being pushed by the globalists.
- The Eastern Wildway extending northward from the Everglades along the Appalachians to the Arctic
- The Western Wildway spanning the continent from Mexico, through the Rockies, to Alaska
- The Pacific Wildway running from Baja to Alaska
- The Boreal Wildway running west-east from Alaska to the Canadian Maritimes across the forest roof of North America
The wildways are “constructed by protecting core areas connected to one another by corridors or linkages. They are essentially mosaics of connected public and private lands that provide habitat and safe passageways for wildlife to travel freely from place to place.”
In the January 2012 Review of Implementation of Agenda 21 and the Rio Principles details the progress the UN has had on their Agenda 21 policies on the local and national levels.
Under the World Trade Organization (WTO) the UN has seen major advances in the developing countries (i.e. Africa, India, Southeast Asia) where they have “embraced the reforms of the WTO regime” where “global import tariffs” have been used as protective measures since 1995.
National subsidies have turned “agricultural commodities” over to the global Elite International cooperation and recognition of the UN’s superiority in the implementation of their schemes. Through the World Bank (WB) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and the manipulation of the Multilateral Debt Relief Initiative (MDRI) uses reinvested funds that are dumped into UN approved public service programs, healthcare and education.

Just a few months ago, scientists were calling for the human population to move into more closely tight-knit cities.
Michail Fragkias, chief scientist for the UIN’s “ Planet Under Pressure” wants populations to be confined to mega-cities, locked up so they are easily controlled and mitigate further population growth.
Fragkias says: “If cities can develop in height rather than in width that would be much more preferable and environmentally not as harmful.”
According to the globalists at America2050, “metropolitan regions will be an interlocking economic system, shared natural resources and ecosystems, and common transportation systems link these population centers together.”
- Environmental systems and topography
- Infrastructure systems
- Economic linkages
- Settlement patterns and land use
- Shared culture and history
Under Agenda 21, policymakers, businesses and community leaders will be used to enact changes to city structures including:
- Controlling public water allocation and distribution
- Coordinating transportation of goods from one megaregion to another
- Installing high-speed railing systems and approved eco-conscious transportation modes to mitigate CO2 emissions
- Protection of biodiversity by restricting human effects to nature
- Implementing tough economic and development strategies to make multi-use purposes in land distribution
Global Integration Zones will link regions to one another through specially designed transportation systems.

[NaturalNews] Nowadays, it seems that many people are looking for more to life than the proverbial nine to five grind. These people are fed up with materialism, government control, lack of good options and the toxic stress levels created by life in the ‘civilized’ world. As the world faces a looming financial crisis as seen recently in Greece, and Peak Oil draws closer (www.wikipedia.org/wiki/Peak_oil), the absolute reliance on the bottom dollar is quite a scary thought. In recent years there has been an increase in the number of communities looking for self-sustainability. These ‘Eco Villages” are environmentally conscious at the core of everything they do, focusing on low impact housing, natural resources for power, fresh clean water, organic gardens for veggies and free range chickens and goats for eggs and milk. In these communities, people work hard at ‘green’ living, with a connection to one another as well as the Earth, opting rather to use their skills to feed themselves and their families instead of becoming a tiny cog in the giant corporate monster machine. Undoubtedly, there are severe problems currently facing our planet and her people. Our food and water supplies are being polluted, manipulated and controlled, and the global push to vaccinate all our children is jeopardizing the long-term survival of our species. Living in an environmentally conscious community like the eco-villages springing up all over the world, could be the only future humans have.
Out of Balance?
These modern day ‘Eco Villages’ reflect the very way humans lived in a time not so long ago when everything they did was in line with the natural order of the universe. They lived in harmony with Mother Earth and based their lives on the seasons and tides of the natural world. However, within the past 100 years of the industrial revolution and the explosion of consumerism, competition for bigger, better, faster, MORE, forced separation amongst society and somehow it became ‘more stuff is a better life.’ Now we have people living, or dreaming of living with lots of land surrounded by a giant wall and a huge mansion resting on perfectly landscaped gardens that serve no productive purpose whatsoever but to look good. Those with money hire others to take care of the child rearing, the housekeeping and anything else that involves day-to-day survival in the modern world. The whole system is out of balance with the natural order.

Governments and private sector corporations have pledged to fund the United Nations’ endeavors toward global governance with a generous $513 billion for Agenda 21 project that will restrict the movements of humans, perverse biodiversity and assist the UN in attaining their Millennium Development Goals.
Secretary-General Sha Zukang of the UN Conference on Sustainable Development (UNCSD) said that over 692 monetary promises were given to the UN.
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon was thrilled that so much money had been given to the UN. “These huge numbers give a sense of the scale and growth of investment going into sustainable development. They are part of a growing global movement for change. Our job now is to create a critical mass, an irresistible momentum.”
Corporations like PepsiCo, and Virgin’s CEO Richard Branson project Carbon War Room are receiving $2 billion from the US government.
Jose-Angel Gurria, secretary-general of the Organization for Economic Cooperation & Development , explained: “Without the private sector it’s not going to work. While governments put up the seed money, the big numbers come from the private sector. The private sector is looking at green growth with great interest, seeing it as an opportunity, as jobs, as investment.”
Academia and universities in places like Bejing, Sydney, Paris and New York will conduct and fund Agenda 21 projects on mega-city sustainability. Most of the $1 trillion allotted will go to projects in turbine, solar, biofuel and geothermal energy.
Manish Bapna, acting president of the World Resources Institute (WRI), a Washington-based environmental research group, said: “There’s no doubt that Rio+20 fell short. But it’s a mistake to conflate what happened here with what’s happening on the ground. You just need to look beyond the walls of the conference to find real-world examples of action.”
The Natural Resources Defense Council will target specific commitments concerning environmental advocacy that is intended to coerce the public into making the much needed rally cry for the new sustainable changes to our lives that the global Elite want to implement.
Bjorn Lomborg, professor at Copenhagen Business School, admonishes the follow-through records of governments as “very poor” and says they should be made to follow the recommendations set out at the conference in Rio. Lomborg explains that the UN has turned to corporations to help them.
Hillary Clinton, US Secretary of State supports the incorporation of the Agenda 21 movement. She remarked that “sustainability won’t happen without business investment. Governments alone cannot solve all the problems we face, from climate change to persistent poverty to chronic energy shortages. That’s why we are so strongly in favor of partnerships.”
As far as UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is concerned, the money from corporations and governments cannot come at a better time. Ki-moon claims that “words must translate into action” with regard to moving the environmental governance agenda forward.
Ki-moon says that since the first UNCSD, the incremental slide toward total global governance has spawned UN conventions on climate change, biodiversity and desertification, as well as the Agenda 21 blueprint for sustainable development, yet “progress has been too slow – we have not gone far enough down the road. We are now in sight of a historic agreement – the world is waiting to see if words will translate into action, as we know they must.”
The Asian Development Bank , one of 8 international development financial institutions have agreed to give the UN $175 billion for sustainable transportation schemes to be built and running within 10 years.
Holger Dalkmann, of the WRI, believe that greenhouse gas emissions must be drastically cut by the controlled utilization of sustainable transport to replace private cars to ensure “cleaner air, less congested roads, and safer transportation.”
Businesses must be balancing costs with sustainability in order to continue doing business. Nick Clegg, UK Deputy Prime Minister calls this practice “a false economy” and demands transparency from British corporations.
Gro Harlem Brundtland, says that corporate power must be merged with the UN’s sustainable development goals if they are to be successful.
Governments like Russia, the Middle Eastern Nations and Latin America have been ruled as opposing the UN’s Agenda 21 policies.

Transition towns are a movement modeled after the UN’s Agenda 21 to create communities that adhere to initiatives that center around reducing CO2 emissions.
Under the alarmist perspective of man-made climate change, founders Rob Hopkins and Naresh Giangrande created the Transition Model based on studies conducted by Ben Brangwyn on global relocalization agendas.
At an initial Transition Bristol meeting in the UK, the Tudor Trust began funding this initiative. This led to the creation of the Transition Initiatives Primer, an explanatory guide to the scheme and fake grassroots groups who coerced communities into adopting the plan.
Transition Initiatives were created in Australia, Canada, England, Germany, Ireland, Italy, the Netherlands, New Zealand, Scotland, South Africa, Spain, Sweden, USA, and Wales. Training courses have been developed to ensure that this ideal becomes a global movement.
Issues under Transition Initiatives governance are food production, manipulation techniques in dealing with local governments, sustainable housing, reduction of public energy consumption, adaptation of communities to resemble transition cities and control over local economies.
