Redlands Group to Host First Ever Sustainability Festival

The event kicks off at 11 a.m. on Saturday at the University of Redlands.

The Redlands Sustainability Network is preparing to host the first ever Sustainability Festival at the University of Redlands, which will feature everyone from musical acts to lectures by experts on environmental issues.

The event is Saturday and it is free and open to the public. The event features a number of speakers including a representative from the Claremont Home Energy Retrofit Project, the American Lung Association and the Better World Group Inc.

Activities include yoga instruction, garden tours, poetry readings and film screenings.

The entire event kicks off at the Lewis Hall Amphitheater at 11 a.m. with opening remarks from Phil Courtney and Roger Bell, both members of the Redlands Sustainability Network.

The city and its residents are very active in the sustainability movement fighting city projects that could impact their quality of life. The event is meant to become an annual event, organizers said.

The University of Redlands is at 1200 E Colton Ave. For information on the college, call (909) 793-2121. For information on the festival, organizers ask that you visit the website. http://www.sustainableredlands.com/index.html

Sounds like a few people making a lot of rules for everyone else.

“Sustainability” = UN Agenda 21 = less liberty and less prosperity. One of the best sources is self-described “liberal democrat,” “feminist,” “lesbian” Rosa Koire and her book “Behind the Green Mask: U.N. Agenda 21.” For more information, please see: http://www.postsustainabilityinstitute.org/ http://www.democratsagainstunagenda21.com/ http://www.democratsagainstunagenda21.com/uploads/4/4/6/6/4466371/why_is_everyone_talking_about_un_agenda_21.pdf http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UDtCb45Lqt0 If the U.N. is involved, it can’t be good for America and it can’t be good for liberty. Liberty is not a value of the Left.

So far the Climate change gurus score has been 0/0 on their predictions. Here's a a few of my favorite quotes to ask the new intelligentsia attending the festival about: 1. Within a few years "children just aren't going to know what snow is." Snowfall will be "a very rare and exciting event." Dr. David Viner, 2000 2. "By 1995, the greenhouse effect would be desolating the heartlands of North America & Eurasia with horrific drought, causing crop failures and food riots". And, "by 1996 The Platte River of Nebraska would be dry, while a continent-wide black blizzard of prairie topsoil will stop traffic on interstates, strip paint from houses and shut down computers." Michael Oppenheimer, 1990 3. A general warming trend over the North Pole is melting the polar ice cap and may produce an ice-free Arctic Ocean by the year 2000." Dr. Bernt Balchen, 1972 4. "If present trends continue, the world will be ... eleven degrees colder by the year 2000. This is about twice what it would take to put us in an ice age." Kenneth E.F. Watt, 1970 5. "By the year 2000 the United Kingdom will be simply a small group of impoverished islands, inhabited by some 70 million hungry people ... If I were a gambler, I would take even money that England will not exist in the year 2000." Dr. Paul Ehrlich, 1971 6. "In ten years all important animal life in the sea will be extinct. Large areas of coastline will have to be evacuated because of the stench of dead fish." Dr. Paul Ehrlich, 1970

Please note the poster for “sustainability.” No houses, no cars, no business, no jobs, only people walking and riding bikes with a windmill for more expensive and less reliable energy. That’s what “sustainability” and U.N. Agenda 21 mean to America’s and your future.
