Driving around Austin, Texas over the past year, I’ve noticed a change taking place.

Large mixed-use development buildings with apartments on top and businesses on the bottom are popping up all over town. Billboards line the highways telling me I should have a “roadmance” (not even kidding) with the new toll roads encircling the city that Texans never really ever wanted; future toll roads subsidizing corporate interests are in the works. Advertisements are pushing high-speed rail as hip and trendy; they are reminiscent of America 2050 goals for the future of our nation involving 11 highly condensed megaregions connected with these same rails (with support from the Rockefeller Foundation, of course).

The entire service area for Austin has been smart metered, without regard to national outcry over the negative health effects. Austin Energy says the meters are “valuable devices” that communicate with the utility via radio frequency waves and “Advanced Metering Infrastructure software to measure the amount of electricity used and at what time of day.” The utility also admitted back in 2012 that “integrating smart meter technology into the operations and services to customers” was one of the its “aggressive goals“.

Each of the city’s smart meters is putting out electromagnetic frequencies as they send customer data to the utility company every 15 minutes. Recently two Texas senators introduced legislation to help residents opt out.

When I first moved here, my roommate was all excited to show me her new smart, motion-sensored thermostat that comes on automatically any time you walk near it. She told me how it was installed in her home for free (how cool is that?) if she agreed to be part of a pilot project through the University of Texas at Austin on monitoring energy consumption. She was pretty excited about how the temperature in her house could be controlled remotely using an Internet interface.

The city’s water is in the process of being smart metered, too. The Citizens Water Conservation Implementation Task Force filed the report “Water Conservation 2020: Strategic Recommendations” with Austin’s City Council in 2010, calling for a smart meter program with “real-time” water use data. The committee also recommended the city “Target customers with high water use with an audit campaign to look at outdoor and indoor conservation measures” [emphasis added] as well as reducing the city’s water use by two percent every year.

So What Is Agenda 21?

Although buzz terms like “sustainable development” and “smart growth” sound friendly enough on the surface, Agenda 21 is a pact the U.S. signed on to with 177 other countries after the 1992 U.N. Earth Summit. Agenda 21 describes itself as a “comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally” as a new vision for the 21st century.

In short, Agenda 21 is about global control from the ground up. Agenda 21 expert Rosa Koire sums it up (those are her caps below, not mine):

“UN Agenda 21/Sustainable Development is the action plan implemented worldwide to inventory and control all land, all water, all minerals, all plants, all animals, all construction, all means of production, all energy, all education, all information, and all human beings in the world. INVENTORY AND CONTROL.”

Though Agenda 21 is technically a ‘non-binding treaty’, that didn’t stop President Clinton from binding America to it with Executive Order #12852 to create the President’s Council on Sustainable Development, an official push to align U.S. environmental policies with U.N. Agenda 21 directives. Today it’s continued through President Obama’s Partnership for Sustainable Communities.

For all the ways Agenda 21 will seeks to destroy everything from national sovereignty to personal property rights, check out this video:

Randomly taking a peek at recent Austin City Council meeting minutes from the last few months, we can see Agenda 21 at work:

  • “Authorize negotiation and execution of agreements with Ecobee, EnergyHub, and other thermostat vendors who qualify for participation in Austin Energy’s Power Partner Program for a demand response program to provide customer incentives in exchange for thermostat data access, for a combined total amount not to exceed $950,000 over a 24-month period.”
  • “Authorize the negotiation and execution of Amendment No. 1 to the Interlocal Agreement for Services to Develop an Analytic Tool for Sustainable Communities Regional Planning with the Capital Area Council of Governments to increase the amount payable to the City by $12,500 to employ summer interns, for a total contract amount not to exceed $205,507.”
  • “Approve a resolution directing the City Manager to collect data on multi-family units participating in Austin Energy’s Multi-Family Energy Efficiency Program.”
  • Land use map designations are being formally changed from “Single Family land use to Higher Density Single Family land use” or “Mixed Use land use” all the time.
  • Approving an ordinance “repealing and replacing Article 11 of City Code Chapter 25-12 to adopt the 2012 International Residential Code and local amendments“.

All of these will significantly impact how people live in Austin, a city that appears to be on the cutting edge of Agenda 21 trendiness.
