By 2030 it is expected that an estimated 4 billion people will live in
eco-cities, which are controlled environments where sustainability mandates
how much water, energy, food and production is allowed in urbanized areas.
Targets and restrictions will replace
traditional living to keep the land used for habitat from becoming a
wasteland and protect the surrounding wildlife.
Global research on renewable energy and clean technology in an international
hub will collaborate to overcome human challenges as population become
In eco-cities, private cars will be banned, forcing people to use high-speed
mass transit, bicycles or simply walk to their destination. Narrower streets
and huge walls to separate the eco-city from the surrounding wildlife
preserves will aid in controlling the temperature of the city.
Several cities in America are transforming their existing urban cities into
eco-cities that are marketed as “laboratories of innovation and progress”.
In Osceola County, Central Florida, Anthony Pugliese, president and
CEO of Pugliese Development Co (PDC) is building an eco-sustainable
city called Destiny where the entire landscape will reduce on-site carbon
emissions to zero.
PDC has partnered with technology companies to
mandate LED lighting, solar panels. The city will sustain a population of an
estimated 250,000; with 10,000 residential units and 7 million sq ft of
Use of gray water to irrigate, electric community cars for every-person use,
biomass plant that will facilitate the purchase of energy credits will be
the controlling factors that create a sustainable urban development.
PDC has been given recognition by the Clinton Climate Initiative (CCI),
Bill Clinton’s program to advance solutions for
climate change. CCI collaborates with businesses, environmental groups to
bring coercive influence on local, national and over-reaching social levels
to demonstrate the necessity of reforming policy, decision-making and
infrastructure that have Agenda 21 policies at their forefront.
In Cleveland, Ohio, the incorporated
Cleveland EcoVillage project redevelops
existing areas through partnerships with the city, regional transit
authority and private developers. Local residents are subject to Delphi
techniques to ensure they cooperate with the changes to their neighborhood.
The EcoVillage is a national project dedicated to displaying green building
and transit-orientated development by rearranging urban life to adhere to
Virginia Tech’s Department of Urban Affairs and Planning located in
Alexandria has created an
Eco-City Charter and
Environmental Action Plan of
2030 that is moving the city toward sustainable development.
They plan on
turning Alexandria into an eco-city that is naturally built
with environmental sustainability so that the city and surrounding areas
function as one ecological system. The social, economic and sense of
community will be focused on sustainability foremost; to prevent “problems
in the future”.
All across America, sustainable development “cities” managed and constructed
under the policies of Agenda 21 are popping up with the assistance of
eco-terrorist groups masquerading as grassroots efforts.
One example are the
Ecocity Builders, a non-profit organization which is a
collaboration of international networks of associates that influence and
actively participate in local city planning projects all across the US.
Through training courses, they advocate the
ecocity approach as the only way to continue in civilized society.
Living in densely populated areas where transportation is limited; the
buildings regulate use of water, energy, and waste; while food production is
strictly managed by the city planners is where
the global Elite want to
place every man, woman and child.
In the next few decades, we will see the transition of our home towns into
sustainable prisons. The alterations are happening right now in most cities
where urbanized living is most congested.
Ultimately, the lies of the ecocities are that they provide,
“a practical vision for a sustainable and
restorative human presence on this planet and suggests a path towards
its achievement through the rebuilding of cities, towns and villages in
balance with living systems.”
