Financing for Agenda 21 comes from the taxpayers. All documents presented are official from the originating agency or body. The underlining belief in supporters of this Agenda is man made global warming. We now know the science behind this global warming claims is false and was based on personal agendas.

NOTE: notable comment – ( one of many)
- Participating in a UN advocated planning process would very likely bring out many of the conspiracy-fixated groups and individuals in our society such as the National Rifle Association, citizen militias and some members of Congress. This segment of our society who fear ‘one-world government’ and a UN invasion of the United States through which our individual freedom would be stripped away would actively work to defeat any elected official who joined ‘the conspiracy’ by undertaking LA21. So, we call our processes something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management or smart growth.
