El Dorado County folks riled by U.N. agenda for sustainable growth

By Eduardo DiBaia / Associated Press file, 1992
At a 1992 United Nations event known as the Earth Summit, Brazil’s president signs a document as he’s applauded by the U.N. secretary-general at right. Critics say the summit’s Agenda 21 sets extreme environmental goals that threaten rural residents.

The United Nations is haunting El Dorado County.

Mathat compares the failure to see the connections [Agenda 21 to federal, state and local government] to a parable about catching wild pigs. The parable says if you put corn out for the pigs to eat and build an enclosure one wall at a time, the pigs will be fenced in before they know it.
