The House advanced a resolution Thursday demanded by lawmakers fearful about covert infiltration of U.S. environmental policy by socialist ideals espoused by the United Nations.
Rep. Dennis Hedke, R-Wichita, led the charge to gain House condemnation of the UN’s Agenda 21, a comprehensive blueprint on sustainable development created in 1992.
“What the resolution attempts to do is to inform policymakers as to the aggressive environmental extremism, social engineering and global political control that is the intent of UN Agenda 21,” Hedke said. “Indoctrination is connected to an intense socialistic philosophy.”
Hedke, a geophysicist in the oil and gas industry, said in a 15-minute floor speech the federal Environmental Protection Agency, Department of Agriculture and Department of Energy were “deeply engaged” in implementing aspects of Agenda 21 designed to harm the United States.
