The Deceptive Agenda of Sustainability in Local Government

Have you heard of the U.N. Agenda 21 and the sustainability agenda? What is ICLEI (International Council for Local Environmental Initiatives, now Local Governments for Sustainability), and why should it be a concern to you locally? Their policies are openly dedicated to global government control over every aspect of our lives including housing, energy, water, food production, transportation, population control, education, social welfare…all in the name of sustainability.
Did you know that Albemarle County and the City of Charlottesville are paying your tax dollars to ICLEI and are attributed status as Global Members? Do you know why the “Cool Counties” program isn’t so cool , and how it allows ICLEI to participate in local decisions affecting your property rights under the benign banner of saving energy?
Spend St. Patrick’s Day with the Jefferson Area Tea Party on Thursday, March 17 at 7:00 p.m. as Tom DeWeese and Dr. Charles Battig discuss the “blarney” of sustainability on this “green day.” This community forum is non-partisan, free of charge, and open to the public. Our panel will answer questions from the audience following their presentations.
Everyone will receive a green sham-rock with a number on it, good for a drawing for a free, autographed copy of Tom DeWeese’s new book, “Now Tell Me I Was Wrong.”

Dr. Charles Battig
Charles Battig received a B.S. in Electrical Engineering, a M.S. in Electrical Engineering, and M.D. degree all from Tulane University. He was recruited by North American Aviation (Los Angeles) as “Principal Scientist in Biomedical Monitoring Systems as part of a life science group in support of the Apollo moon mission (1962-1964).
Following his service as Senior Surgeon/Commander in U.S. Public Health Service stationed at the National Institutes of Health Bethesda Maryland in the Biomedical Engineering Branch, Charles went into private practice in Anesthesiology in Los Angeles until his retirement in 1990.
Since moving to Charlottesville ten years ago, Charles has pursued an active interest in climate issues prompted by the discovery of a rich history of climatologists here: Professor S. Fred Singer, Patrick Michaels, Dennis Avery, and M. Mann, and the lack of local coverage of the topic other than the Al Gore catastrophe promotion. In 2009, Professor Singer appointed Charles to be president of the Piedmont Chapter of the educational group Virginia Scientists and Engineers for Energy and Environment. Charles has had numerous letters published in the Wall Street Journal, Barron’s, and the local press, and appears on a monthly basis on “The Schilling Show” (1070-AM, WINA radio, Charlottesville) with host Rob Schilling.
