ArchCoal's West Elk Mine could run out of coal in less than five years if they continue to be denied access to their leases to the coal underlying the Sunset Roadless Area due to the U.S. Forest Service 2001 Roadless Area Conservation Rule. Miners and loggers are increasingly being prevented access to public land due to UN Agenda 21 types of policies such as the Wildlands Project (more below).
Hopefully the Colorado Roadless Rule just proposed May 2 will be enacted soon and will restore West Elk's directional drilling access to their leases.
Dave Foreman of Earth First stated his perspective on global Agenda 21 this way: "We must make this place an insecure and inhospitable place for capitalists and their projects — we must reclaim the roads and plowed lands, halt dam construction, tear down existing dams, free shackled rivers and return to wilderness tens of millions of acres or presently settled land."
We must encourage our Delta County mayors, city councilors, commissioners, chamber of commerce members, state and federal representatives and planning commissioners to prevent and reverse any unconstitutional imposition of Agenda 21 as exemplified by the San Juan Mountains Wilderness Act of 2011 in Montrose County. Colorado Senator Udall sponsored this bill that would make mining and logging off-limits to huge sections of San Miguel, Ouray, and San Juan counties with the support the pro-Agenda 21 Sheep Mountain Alliance.
"The objective of [Agenda 21] sustainable development is to integrate economic, social and environmental policies in order to achieve reduced consumption, social equity, and the preservation and restoration of biodiversity. Sustainablists insist that every societal decision be based on environmental impact, focusing on three components; global land use, global education, and global population control and reduction." http://www.newswithviews.com/DeWeese/tom194.htm
Two factors keep the threat of Agenda 21 hidden. Its scope is so monumental that those not aware of actual encroachments tune it out as a ludicrous United Nations scheme. On the other hand, those implementing it locally are either careful not to attribute their decisions to Agenda 21 or they are actually unaware how much their actions are advancing the agenda.
Many of those in favor of Agenda 21 sincerely believe many of the apocalyptic environmental warnings such as Al Gore's global warming hoax. They rationalize these "emergencies" to justify pre-empting the normal democratic process, the Constitution, private property rights, local government responsibility and free enterprise.
The enactment of United Nations Agenda 21 kinds of "sustainable development" policies in Delta County must be prevented.
