Environmental movements and the elections
Agenda 21 and Wildlands
by Pinedale Online!
August 20, 2012

The November election will be important because those who are elected will decide the direction of the country for more than just the next four years. Significant philosophy and policy agendas are being pushed by various outside interests to pressure the United States into accepting implementation of global social policies and controls over America’s natural resources and land management policies. With 80% of Sublette County being public land, what happens with who is elected and their persuasions regarding these policy change movements at political levels will significantly impact how Sublette County citizens can recreate on public lands, as well as future tax revenues to the county derived from management of natural resources on these lands.

Below are two environmental topics that may be big potential players impacting our local land use policies and federal land management. Additional information and links can be found through search engine searches to further explore these topics.

Agenda 21 Agenda 21 is a comprehensive plan of action implemented internationally in 1992 by the United Nations to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations System, governments, and major groups in every area in which human impacts on the environment for comprehensive plan sustainable development elevating nature above human beings, ending national sovereignty, end ownership of private property, and establishing an eco-subsidy agenda for socialistic control mechanisms for world government.

Wildlands An effort to lock up to as much as 50% of United States into wilderness for preservation of ecosystem biodiversity. The project seeks to set aside core reserve areas, buffer zones, and corridors for wildlife habitat and minimal human use. Core areas are to be made from public lands such as National Parks and National Forests. Buffer zones are created from private lands adjoining public lands, through the use of conservation easements and purchase of development rights. Corridors are a mix of public and private lands along river corridors and wildlife migration routes through the purchase of the private property or development rights on that private property. These areas would prohibit resource development, areas would be off limits to human activity, priorities are for nature control over human activity, management through "smart-growth zones" and green programs. Designated regions and zones free of human interference. This is a long-term project which may take 100 years or more to implement and change western civilization’s present economic, technological and ideological structures.
