Whole Earth Day

Reason‘s Ronald Bailey presents a preliminary report on the upcoming UN attempt to impoverish and enslave you.

The WSSD is a followup to the Earth Summit held in Rio de Janeiro 10 years ago. At that gathering, world leaders negotiated and adopted the Framework Convention on Climate Change (FCCC) and the Convention on Biological Diversity (CDB), among other treaties. The fearful truth is that once a UN treaty process or agency has been launched, it continues to grow and mutate, but is always aiming to increase the power of international bureaucracies and national governments at the expense of individuals.

Am I guilty of hyporbole? Is Bailey? Sure — but only in the short term. Read the whole thing.
