Houston City Councilwoman Helena Brown voted against a city construction project Wednesday, warning that in signing off on two energy-efficient building projects the council was handing millions of dollars to a “non-American initiative and interests.”
It was the first of two occasions during the weekly meeting that Brown suggested city projects were linked to Agenda 21, a non-binding resolution the United Nations passed at the 1992 “Earth Summit” in Rio de Janeiro. The catalog of proposals aims to combat sprawl and promote conservation. Brown voted in favor of the second project she linked to Agenda 21, however, because it came in under budget.
Activists and some politicians see Agenda 21 as a U.N.-led conspiracy to impose worldwide control on people, in part by denying private property rights through the implementation of sustainable growth or “green” initiatives by local and state governments.
