The New World Order types are tickled pink with the woman who popularized the vague phrase “sustainable development,” and will be giving her millions of dollars for her efforts.
One of the architects of Agenda 21, Former Norwegian prime minister Gro Harlem Brundtland “was awarded the first Tang Prize in Sustainable Development for ‘concept, leadership and implementation of sustainable development for the benefit of humanity.'”
Brundtland’s work also led to the 1997 Kyoto Protocol on greenhouse gases, which mandated that governments fight to stop the “greenhouse effect.”
In the Agenda 21 report in 1992, she wrote in part,
“The challenge of finding sustainable development paths ought to provide the impetus – indeed the imperative – for a renewed search for multilateral solutions and a restructured international economic system of co-operation. These challenges cut across the divides of national sovereignty, of limited strategies for economic gain, and of separated disciplines of science.”
Brundtland noted that she was a part of another global initiative, the fear-mongering Brandt Commission on North South issues, as well as the Palme Commission on security and disarmament issues.
The term “Agenda 21” may have been marginalized in the United States, but it’s legacy is very much alive and well, commonly referred to as “sustainable development.” Just as the marginalized phrase, “New World Order” has morphed into “global governance,” “global order,” or just “governance,” the ideas never go away.
Implementing “Agenda 21,” is still embraced by NGOs, the heavily-funded backbone of the progressive movement.
As an aside, mass murderer Anders Behring Breivik planned to target Gro Harlem Brundtland, who “gave a speech on the island [where Breivik conducted his killing spree] the day of the slaughter,” but she left before he arrived, as reported at the Telegraph.
