No cars, not enough energy, everyone forced into cities and onto buses, bugs for food, reduction in the population, high costs, social ostracism, fear fear fear all the time. How can they call that “sustainable?” The truth is they seem to be getting ready to murder us.

Drivers will be forced off the roads in Ireland and the population packed into “higher density” cities under a long-awaited climate plan which will ‘revolutionise’ people’s lifestyle and behaviours, according to local media.
“Nudge” policies such as huge tax hikes, as well as bans and red tape outlined in the plan, will pave the way to a “vibrant” Ireland of zero carbon emissions by 2050 according to the government, which last year committed to boost the country’s 4.7 million-strong population by a further million with mass migration.
In order to avert a “climate apocalypse”, the government plans to force people “out of private cars because they are the biggest offenders for emissions”, according to transport minister Shane Ross whose proposals — which include banning fossil fuel vehicles from towns and cities nationwide — are posed to cripple ordinary motorists, local media reports.
Launching the plan in Dublin, leader Leo Varadkar outlined his vision for an Ireland of ‘higher density’ cities consisting of populations whose lifestyles and behaviours have been totally transformed by ‘carrot and stick’ policies outlined in the climate plan.
“Our approach will be to nudge people and businesses to change behaviour and adapt new technologies through incentives, disincentives, regulations and information,” the globalist prime minister said.
“We are going to change how electricity is produced and consumed, how our homes and workplaces are heated; the way we travel; the types of vehicles we purchase; and how food is produced.
“It’s about vibrant, populated city centres, liveable, with excellent amenities and transport as we embrace higher densities.”
The document, which was unveiled on Tuesday, features more than 180 measures to decarbonise the Irish economy including making private car ownership prohibitively expensive — with petrol and diesel car sales banned by 2030, a date by which it says general carbon tax will be increased from €20 a tonne to “at least” €80.
In addition, the plans demand that coal and peat-fired power stations are replaced with wind farms and other “green” energy sources in order to meet the requirement that 70 per cent of electricity will be generated from renewables by 2030.
But plans to dramatically slash carbon emissions by ditching tried and tested energy sources such as coal and nuclear in favour of renewables will necessarily result in a collapse in living standards according to scientists including Cambridge engineering professor Michael Kelly, who has previously explained that such proposals “represent total madness”.
“In energy terms the current generation of renewable energy technologies alone will not enable a civilised modern society to continue,” he asserted in a peer-reviewed paper published in 2016, pointing out that renewables such as solar, wind, and hydro power supply just seven per cent of electricity needs globally while “the rate at which fossil fuels are growing is seven times that at which the low carbon energies are growing”.
The Hughes Medal-decorated physicist cautioned: “The call to decarbonise the global economy by 80% by 2050 can now only be described as glib in my opinion, as the underlying analysis shows it is only possible if we wish to see large parts of the population die from starvation, destitution or violence in the absence of enough low-carbon energy to sustain society.”

The masses think the 5G (fifth generation
of wireless cellular technology and mobile telecommunication) is all about faster download and better mobile features. But what the masses do not realise the real reason for 5G. After watch the video on youtube about Max Igan: 5G – Weaponizing the Airwaves also the video is on BitChute as well
Scary things about 5G
- Urban Deforestation: For treehuggers you upset about this; trees being cut down in the name of better reception of 5G because the tree block the 5G signal. According to the video 2 down below.
- Social Credit System: China already got the social credit system and there a documentary from ABC Australia show how the social credit system is a Orwellian nightmare. Your movement and behavior will be track and you score will be base on your conformity to the system. When your decide to go against system your Social Credit Score will be lower and when your Social Credit Score gets too low will you just be removed from the system for your lack of conformity to the system. Social Credit System is nothing but a Orwellian Nightmare Prison System. There youtube video below about the China’s Social Credit System.
- Health Risk: 5G was tested at a fire station in San Francisco, and several firefighters reported suffering from multiple adverse effects from exposure. Memory problems and confusion were some of the top health issues — and the first respondents said their symptoms didn’t go away until they transferred to new firehouses. Headaches, nosebleeds, insomnia, miscarriages, and cancer are some other suspected harmful effects of 5G radiation exposure.
- Microwave Weapon: We also know that the 5G wireless technology system that Telecom companies want to install across America has the ability to steer microwave beams toward objects. In fact, this is one of the key features of the 5G system. This allows each 5G cell tower to direct multiple beams of millimeter microwaves to a cell phone, an iPad, tablet PC, automobile, or any other device that will provide a GPS location. If you are using a cell phone as you drive, the nearest 5G tower will lock a beam on you and your phone as you travel. It targets your phone and tracks your every movement. It makes frequent adjustments in the trajectory of the microwave beam to keep you connected. If your car has built-in GPS, then your car can be tracked in the same way. This video show the Vehicle-Mounted Active Denial System (V-MADS) it can do. It state want to control people and stop unruly protest or behavior they do not like; that what they would be using.
Would still want 5G? For me I’m for technology but not for technology to be used as weapon that would cause harm toward human life and other life on earth as well as bringing society into prison state.
I’m not sure how we can stop 5G and social credit system form coming into place. There a flyer below I made up “Stop 5G; Grow A Tree”
Anyone is free to copy this flying; print it out put it on post,wall,etc. If 5G going to great; why trees being cut down?Source:
New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio used executive powers to push through Green New Deal policies as part of the ‘One NYC 2050’ aka the United Nation’s Sustainable Development Goals. The new policy will phase out processed meats and reduce beef by 50% for all schools, jails, hospitals and cafeterias where government workers eat. Looking further into the policies reveals a slow creep towards an eventual mandated vegan diet in the name of ‘climate change’.
31 March 2019
By Shoshi Herscu, investigative journalist, and author of the full disclosure book, “Mass Awakening
It is an action plan devised by the U.N. and signed by 178 governments. Its goal is the depopulation of humanity because “we are too many”. It is promoted by the elites as a way to “save the planet” and implemented by governments worldwide. Bill Gates even shared his view about how to achieve this goal by vaccinations and other means in a TedX lecture:
“The world today has 6.8 billion people. That’s heading up to about nine billion. Now if we do a really great job on new vaccines, health care & reproductive health services, we could lower that by perhaps 10 or 15 percent.” (Source)
They push their globalist agenda on all of us of no rights to property and other rights. People were even fined for collecting rainwater in their own homes.
The Means of Depopulation
This genocidal agenda of humanity has already begun and there are many means implemented to achieve this goal, including chemtrails (or “Geoengineering”), vaccines, irradiated food, GMOs (Codex Alimentarius), smart meters, 5G deployment that Trump promotes as part of a “technology race”.
One such mean which is relatively ignored in the alternative media is mass population migration from Africa and the Middle East into the U.S. and Europe.
In Israel, they helped bring about 100,000 migrants from Africa who conquered entire neighborhoods in Southern Tel Aviv and other cities where the local population literally became refugees in their own country and fled to other parts in the country. They terrorize the locals and it’s horrendous what happens in these areas. However, all these means sound great when they are termed the “sustainable development” under Agenda 21.
So how people who barely earn 300 USD per year could afford a journey from Africa to Israel that costs (according to some immigrants’ testimonies) $3000 USD. I discovered that this is being paid for and these immigrants are being protected by NGOs (Non-Government Agencies), which are funded by foreign governments and foundations.
I surmise that this is an orchestrated immigration to Israel, resembling that from Syria and Africa to Europe and the U.S., is to destroy the Western countries and those aligned with them from within. Then I started thinking about what we aren’t being told about this massive population migration to Israel.
At the beginning, the Israeli mainstream media called them “refugees.” However, after the U.N. representatives had checked their status, they pointed out that only 6 percent of them were real refugees. This required the mainstream media to change its terminology in regard to them as ”asylum seekers.”
How Is Agenda 21 Implemented Locally Worldwide?
Again, Agenda 21 is carried out by NGOs funded by foreign countries, like the New Israel Fund (funded by the Ford Foundation and others, including Muslim countries) as well as such groups as the Open Society Foundation (George Soros) and Oxfam with the intentions, I surmise, to destroy Israel from within like with other Western countries.
According to the UN’s own website, this is a “comprehensive plan of action 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.”
This plan is involved in every aspect of our lives according to Rosa Koire, an activist and a lecturer who tirelessly works to inform the unaware public about the dangers of this plan. U.N. Agenda 21 / Sustainable Development is a corporate manipulation using the Green Mask of environmental concern to forward a globalist plan.” (www.openmindconference.com)
It seems that using the word “sustainability” helps them promote their depopulation plan unabated. It sounds so “green”, advanced, and progressive. Does it ring a bell? That’s the reason why most people will consider this plan as positive. So, what is wrong with it? Pay attention to the actions of those implementing it and not to “nice”, placating words such as “sustainable development”.
For a long time, I had no idea that there was any connection between all these diverse topics.
This agenda is run by the United Nations via an NGO called “International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives,” commonly known as ICLEI (pronounced Ik-lee). It is implemented locally by municipalities of major cities worldwide, including London, Berlin, Rome.
From my research, fifteen cities in Israel joined this NGO in 2008. It should come as no surprise that Ron Huldai, Tel Aviv’s mayor, is the chairman of ICLEI Israel (or as it’s called the Forum 15, which is the forum of 15 cities in Israel that adopted ICLEI regulations).
This is paid for by you, and taxpayers worldwide (not only in the U.S.), without your knowledge or consent, as none of us was informed of it and obviously, and you didn’t have had a vote on its implementation. This U.N. Agenda 21 is responsible for the development programs in your city that you are not aware of, behind the mass engineered immigration in the West and heavy population surveillance everywhere (as with “smart meters” and 5G).
You can check the Agenda 21 programs implemented in your city or town by searching Agenda 21 and the name of your city in Google. You’ll find them this way. I found these programs implemented in Haifa, the city where I live.
According to ICLEI’s official website, this NGO comprises “12 mega-cities, 100 super-cities and urban regions, 450 large cities as well as 450 medium-sized cities and towns in 84 countries.” This NGOs stated goal is that “By 2050, a third of all humans will be living in cities.”
They also condition children to use sustainable transport which is closely tied to Agenda 21’s population management program, in attempt to bring most people into megacities and away from rural areas which will be deemed “open spaces” for wildlife and be more easily controlled by using public transport.
Recently we became familiar with a Swedish teenage girl called Greta Thunberg who according to mainstream media – that promotes agenda 21 and global warming/climate change – helps raise the awareness to climate issues.
Again, we can see here how children and teenagers are being conditioned to such beliefs without perhaps realizing that they are being used to promote this agenda. If the cabal doesn’t succeed one way (as with Al Gore), they will push their agenda in another way.
My primary concern here was that a hidden agenda is being masked as a beneficial plan for humanity, while being exactly the opposite. In reality, it’s a well-crafted lie to slip past our scrutiny. The upshot of all this is removing national sovereignty and empowering the U.N. to gradually take control over what was once national policies.
“It will remove and destroy all constitutions, restrict free speech and disarm the people. When Agenda 21 is fully realized, the United Nations will be in possession of all guns and subsequently, there will be no opposition to their control.”
Paul McGuire, an internationally recognized prophecy expert, speaker, minister, and author writes in his book The Babylon Code that,
“The true agenda of Agenda 21[/2030] is to establish a global government, global economic system, and global religion. When U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon spoke of ‘a dream of a world of peace and dignity for all’ this is no different than when the Communists promised the people a ‘worker’s paradise.’”
Is It Legal?
As this plan is covertly implemented in the name of U.N. Agenda 21 by an NGO called ICLEI, none of us had been informed about it or have voted for it in any way; it basically leads to the loss of personal freedom and sovereignty worldwide.
This is a deceit of humanity rooted in darkness and our complicit ignorance, which allows the U.N. to implement this treacherous plan. This is totally undemocratic “and it relies on our passive, ill-informed acceptance of ‘authorities’.”
What Is Codex Alimentarius?
This is a term used for the food regulations that were written and ratified in 2009. In my research, I found a connection between IG Farben (former BAYER, BASF, HOECHST) and the food laws ratified by the UN.
It raises many important questions such as: How are these regulations connected to the depopulation agenda? And why is our food filled with toxins and elements that risk our health? Are there really too many people on earth? Is the World Health Organization interested in our general wellbeing?
I found out that Nazis like Fritz ter Meer, a former executive member of IG Farben (which produced and supplied the cyclone B to the death camps during the Second World War), who was incarcerated for fifteen years in prison after being convicted in the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal, was employed by the U.N. after being released. He was part of the committee designed to plan the food resources for humanity that devised the Codex Alimentarius.
(This is an UN-sponsored global food standards body, which criminalizes the production of healthy nutrition both commercially and at your home, whether it’s organic food, your dietary supplements, or even your organic garden).
Dr. Rima Laibow talks about these regulations, which has determined that vitamins are toxins and therefore to be limited in consumption to ineffective dosages, and which includes irradiating the food supply to destroy all nutrients in our food, and to switch to the GMO foods to be consumed by the masses. This alone will lead to the death of three billion people worldwide in the next few decades according to Dr. Rima Laibow.
The World Health Organization confirms these estimates.
Here is more explanation on those behind the outlining of this plan:
“Just fifteen years after they were convicted in the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal, Bayer, BASF and Hoechst were again the architects of the next major human rights offences. In 1962, they established the Codex Alimentarius Commission.” (Remark made by the Dr. Rath Health Foundation)
Why Don’t People Hear About This Plan?
Most people use mainstream media, including TV, newspapers, radios and other means to keep informed, which suppresses this information; those in power control mainstream media and don’t want you to be aware of this plan. This media has denied the existence of such a plan for years, despite the existence of a book entitled “Agenda 21” (350 pages) published by the UN.
So if you don’t rely on alternative media coverage, it’s improbable that you’ll find information about this vast global plan and all of its goals.9 If the public worldwide had become aware of such a plan, they would immediately rise up against it and stop its implementation, which is definitely something “the powers that be” don’t want.
So they have introduced this plan incrementally by using appealing wording like “sustainable development” or some other “green”-sounding term so people would gladly accept it (as fascist regimes have always done). However, it is not about environmental sustainability at all. Its true goals are implemented by deception, concealing its real aim to take over the entire planet and all its assets by a handful of people.
Those promoting this agenda include royalty (such as Prince Charles who is an avid advocate of this plan, as can be seen in his speech ‘The New Environmental Agenda’), top politicians like Obama, who addressed the U.N. General Assembly on September 27, 2015 and stated that the U.N. blueprint “is one of the smartest investments we can make in our own future.”
Bureaucrats, CEOs and the top of international banks and corporations like Hugh Grant, the CEO of Monsanto, said, “This place is getting busier and more crowded. As long as you’ve got money in your back pocket and you drive your station wagon to the supermarket on weekends, then it’s out of sight, out of mind, so far.”
The lifestyle of the “global elite” with their private trains and jets, fleets of cars, and palaces and their businesses are excluded from this plan and continue to be considered sustainable.
In 2013, after finding out that “chemtrails” do exist, I started writing to well-known activists on this topic like Dane Winington, especially, after feeling distraught and helpless about it. I was sick, my throat hurt, and there was no one I could turn to except for those activists reporting and sharing health tips on how to maintain our health and sanity when all this insane information comes out.
First, after realizing this phenomenon, I took a lot of pictures and then one day I noticed two airplanes spraying and leaving these white trails behind them that other planes didn’t leave. This occurred so many times that a friend and I just watched these planes.
She also took some usable photos and videos and posted them on Facebook. I started feeling helpless and hopeless seeing these unmarked airplanes spraying and being unable to do anything except to watch them spraying their poison.
Later on, I also found out that not only do they spray from airplanes, but they also use underwater jet streams in the oceans aimed at our beaches where it’s relevant.
The founder of this site Geoengineering Watch, Dane Winington, together with others filed a lawsuit against the authorities (the regime), who are supposedly behind this crime against humanity stating that HAARP is being used as a weapon that induces climate change.
I found out about a patent for H.A.A.R.P (High Frequency Active Auroral Research Program) that it has installations worldwide, which together with chemtrails they can actually create earthquakes, tsunamis, and other “natural” disasters. Cobra (the resistance movement) also calls it ionosphere heaters (the most famous one is located in Alaska, but such facilities can be found worldwide) and they posted a respective map.
I watched videos that people worldwide uploaded on YouTube showing strange colorful “clouds” half an hour before a “natural” disaster occurred.
U.S Black Budget to Spray the Populace like Roaches
I found out that a secret “black” budget of former President Obama sponsoring our own demise; shockingly, I discovered that we unknowingly finance our own genocide (Secret Presidential Chemtrail Budget Uncovered — Congress Exceeds Billions To Spray Populace Like Roaches and that it goes on for decades.
Here’s the words of Dane Winington on the ongoing chemtrails / Geoengineering:
“Historical records prove beyond doubt that climate engineering has been fully deployed on a substantial scale for over 65 years (hurricane suppression for over 53 years), so why do major publications continue to lie about this blatant reality? Because that is what they are paid to do.
“Once global populations fully grasp the gravity of the biosphere collapse that is rapidly unfolding around them (further exacerbated by Geoengineering), our paradigm will overturn. The power structure is trying desperately to hide this reality for as long as possible.
“Unfortunately, most environmental groups and organizations are major participants in Geoengineering denial. I and several other activists just attended a global warming presentation with standing room only, we made sure that the Geoengineering subject was not omitted from this event.”
According to this agenda (Agenda 21 and Agenda 2030), humans are on the same level as animals. We are to be managed like flora and fauna. Behind it all is a materialistic and secularized view of humanity, which rejects the idea humans are sacred and part of the divine!
Needless to say, this is just the tip of the iceberg in regards to this hideous agenda, which I detail in my book, Mass Awakening. As the title indicates this covers the real intent to control humanity by cutting us off from our higher sources, but I believe we will win this battle and show the methods I and others employ to keep our connection and fight back.
How Do We Know that We Are on a Positive Timeline and that We’re Being Saved?
I feel that it needs to be emphasized: If what the cabal/the elites planned for us all would have worked as they wished and implemented, and there were no white hats, you wouldn’t have been here reading this article. They have done everything to curb fertility and depopulate the planet but we are still here and they, the cabal, is losing. Remember this.

California is known for a lot of things: Ronald Reagan, Hollywood, beaches, hippies, student protests — and some of the most relentlessly progressive politicians in the entire country.
Simply put, the government of California is out of control. In total, the state added 1,016new laws to the books in 2019, including a silly “straw ban,” intrusive requirements for children’s menus and yet another minimum wage increase. At virtually every level of Californians’ lives, state policymakers are ready to step in and interfere. From the cradle to the grave.
Now it seems the new governor, Gavin Newsom, is anxious to make his own contribution to the ever-expanding role of government in our lives by taxing some of our most basic necessities in an unprecedented power grab.
In his ineffable wisdom, the newly elected governor has proposed a statewide tax on, of all things, California’s drinking water. Newsom plans to dedicate the new tax revenues to programs to help communities clean up contaminated water sites. Improving the quality of drinking water may be a worthy goal, but the water tax proposal is a case study in the failures of progressive policymaking.
First, critics note that the new tax would be difficult and costly to administer. Jon Coupal of the Howard Jarvis Taxpayer Association said the proposed water tax is emblematic “of California’s knee-jerk reaction to default to a new tax whenever there’s a new problem.”
“It isn’t sound policy to tax a resource that is essential to life,” the Association of California Water Agencies noted, a coalition of public water agencies throughout the state. “The combined local administrative costs would exceed the combined statewide water tax revenue collected with local water bills.”
But more than concerns over the cost of the new tax or its administrability, is the simple fact that it runs counter to the will of the California electorate.
In the last election, voters defeated a statewide measure proposed to allocate $500 million in bond funding to ensure compliance with drinking water standards. According to a statewide poll conducted by Tulchin Research in 2018, 73 percent of likely California voters oppose the proposed tax on drinking water.
“Opposition to this proposed statewide tax on drinking water holds true among every major demographic group in the state,” Tulchin notes. “In a rare display of bipartisanship, Democrats and Republicans oppose the tax by nearly identical margins as do voters in both Northern and Southern California and voters in all ethnic groups.”
One key to understanding the unpopularity of the water tax is that California is already among the most heavily taxed states in the country. The Foundation for Economic Freedom reports that California already has one of the largest tax burdens in the country, pointing out that “In 2017, the state collected $82 billion in tax revenue — nearly $4 billion more than expected.”
Yet despite the state’s enviable financial status, Newsom’s plan to improve the quality of drinking water in the state appears to be taken from the usual liberal playbook: More taxes and more government as the solution for every societal problem.
But this suggests a lack of creative thinking on the part of the governor. There are, in fact, other solutions to the problem of contaminated water, experts say. “We think the problem can be solved without a tax,” says Cindy Tuck, deputy executive director of the ACWA.
One promising non-tax alternative to improving California’s drinking water is the Safe Drinking Water Trust funded by the state’s general fund during years with a budget surplus, as proposed by ACWA and California Municipal Utilities Association. According to Water Tax Facts, “The net income from the trust would create a durable funding source that will help community water systems in disadvantaged communities provide access to safe drinking water.”
If the governor is sincere in his desire to address water quality, he should first explore how alternative mechanisms like the Water Trust could be strengthened before he demands more money from already hard-pressed California taxpayers.
For now, the proposed water tax is further evidence that the state’s liberal politicians are all wet. And if they get their way, the rest of us will simply be hung out to dry.

(Natural News) Climate change controversy continues to grow, with an increasing number of skeptics coming forward to speak out. Now, a top adviser to former Australian Prime Minister Tony Abbott has just declared that global warming is a conspiracy pushed by a power-hungry United Nations.
Maurice Newman, chief business adviser to former PM Abbott, says that the global warming hoax has nothing to do with Earth’s climate, and everything to do with the United Nation’s establishing itself as an authoritarian regime.
For years, climate change skeptics have faced insults and ridicule for daring to defy scientific convention. but with a growing body of scientific evidence to dispel climate change mythology, it is clear that skepticism is more than justified.
Denouncing climate change
Maurice Newman says that irrespective of what climate data indicates, it has become increasingly obvious that the United Nations is using climate change as a vehicle to expand its power.
“This is not about facts or logic. It’s about a new world order under the control of the U.N.,” Newman reportedly stated in a piece for The Australian.
“It is opposed to capitalism and freedom and has made environmental catastrophism a household topic to achieve its objective,” he contended further.
Newman noted further that the overwhelming majority of studies “proving” the link between CO2 emissions and climate change are now known to be erroneous.
Two decades’ worth of climate stability should be enough proof that the climate catastrophe we’ve been hearing about isn’t actually happening. But, as Newman posits, climate change may be less about saving the Earth and more about growing authoritarianism.
“The real agenda is concentrated political authority. Global warming is the hook. Eco-catastrophists [ …] have captured the U.N. and are extremely well funded. They have a hugely powerful ally in the White House,” Newman states.
Climate change has been an immensely polarizing topic in Australia. Former PM Malcolm Turnbull was recalled over his stance on climate change, while new PM Scott Morrison is making waves by refusing to kowtow to climate fear-mongering. PM Morrison recently revealed that the “land down under” would no longer be contributing to global climate funds.https://www.brighteon.com/embed/5820599249001
The climate hoax unravels
Environmentalist groups have been quick to chastise climate change skeptics as being “anti-science,” — even in the face of overwhelming evidence that much of what the majority believes about climate change has been proven false — or worse, faked.
Natural News has been reporting on the fraudulent nature of most climate science for years.
The paper, authored by Myles R. Allen, Richard J. Millar and others, reveals that global warming climate models are flat wrong, having been deceptively biased toward “worst case” warming predictions that now turn out to be paranoid scare mongering.”
As Adams notes further, this research proves current models used by IPCC “wildly” overstate the potential impact of CO2 emissions on the global climate. The so-called “hockey stick” data is a fraud.
A recent review has also shown that so-called scientists have been deliberately altering sea level data to create the impression that sea levels are rising. As the reviewers report, data actually indicated that sea levels were stable — until fraudsters manually changed the data to make it fit their narrative.
The leading science on climate change is marred by fraudulent data, manipulation of science and a total lack of integrity — and it is no small wonder that skepticism is growing.
