Corporate giant Monsanto, known for its controversial business model, lobbying, and its widely criticized genetically modified organisms (GMOs), has officially joined the World Business Council for Sustainable Development, a group of powerful interests including major banks and Big Oil backing the United Nations "Agenda 21” scheme for so-called “sustainable development."
expressed alarm over the announcement, saying the global
“sustainability” push is really a transparent plot to centralize
power in the UN and enrich special interests at the expense of
private property rights, national sovereignty, and individual
According to the announcement late last
month, the biotech behemoth will be rolling out a “sustainability”
course for its employees all over the world. Chairman and CEO Hugh
Grant will represent the GMO company as a “Council Member” in the
global “sustainable development” coalition.
Farming and global agriculture must change, the WBCSD continued.
Indeed, the WBCSD’s website is rather candid about its aims and its “One World vision,” explicitly touting the UN Agenda 21 and its radical plan for transforming human civilization.
Meanwhile, even as opposition to the UN’s vision of so-called “sustainable development” continues to surge worldwide, the controversial biotech giant also publicly celebrated its decision to join forces with Big Business “sustainability” proponents.
The press release publicly announcing the move claimed that a growing population would put a strain on natural resources and that “new agriculture systems” would be needed for “sustainability” purposes.
Monsanto, of course, has come under heavy criticism recently - particularly last year when a French university study found that its genetically engineered “frankenfood” products were associated with serious health concerns such as cancer.
In the wake of the explosive research
findings, which the company itself criticized as flawed, the Russian
actually banned the import or sale of Monsanto’s NK603 genetically
engineered corn. European authorities considered similar
measures as well.
The U.S. government, in particular, is
filled with former
high-ranking Monsanto figures, and it plays a
key role in pushing the firm’s dubious products worldwide. When
governments or scientists express concerns about the health or
economic impacts of GMOs,
have revealed, American authorities stand
ready to exert overwhelming pressure to crush any resistance.
Still, key members of the so-called global “establishment”,
...among other powerful forces, have been promoting what they
misleadingly tout as “sustainable development” for decades.
In essence, under the guise of environmentalism and, more recently, alleviating poverty, the global scheme calls for reducing consumption, further empowering the UN and national governments, more central planning in the economy, a gradual erosion of private property rights, and much more.
The global entity’s
own documents, as The New American has
documented extensively, reveal the scope of the plan. Indeed, in
recent years, the UN has become increasingly candid in discussing
its goals, saying last year that
even human thought would be targeted under the radical agenda.
Using grants and federal pressure,
presidents from George H.W. Bush, who originally signed on to Agenda
21, to Obama most recently, have been busy pushing and implementing
the controversial UN plan within America.
Numerous states and local governments, for example, have adopted bi-partisan resolutions condemning UN Agenda 21 as a “socialist” and “communist” plot completely at odds with the U.S. Constitution, American traditions of self-government, and even fundamental liberties.
That trend of
resistance is accelerating.
Other states are also working on similar
laws as opposition to the controversial global agenda surges
nationwide - especially at the
And across America, local government
meetings have been increasingly swamped by concerned citizens
demanding an end to their elected officials’ cooperation with the
agenda and its myriad tentacles - especially
ICLEI, a Germany-based, UN-backed organization working to
implement the plan formerly known as the International Council of
Local Environmental Initiatives.
Some prominent examples include,
Hundreds of other major corporate players are members as
Ruthless dictatorships - a top Chinese Communist Party official chaired the whole UN summit, for instance - have joined forces with Big Business, NGO front groups for the establishment, and powerful interests worldwide in the quest for global government.
“Sustainability” is simply the buzzword used to conceal the increasingly transparent real agenda.
