Agenda 21 wants to remove all people from rural areas through the enforcement of the anti-small farmer administratively contrived policies frequently concocted by bureaucrats who are outside the reach of the electorate.
The EPA is introducing new standards for wood stoves which dramatically reduces the amount of fine particle emissions for any wood stove sold in 2015.
Join Dave Hodges and myself this Sunday as we talk about the Klamath Basin water theft issue, Agenda 21, and the proposed new state of Jefferson carved out of a piece of both Northern California and Southern Oregon, which just so happens to be the area affected by the proposed removal of the Klamath River dams.
The Department of Interior plans to destroy four dams on the Klamath River in Northern California and Southern Oregon so salmon can swim further than 180 miles up the river. But these dams provide water and flood protection to thousands of humans who also live along the river. Clean energy from these hydro dams supply electricity to 70,000 residents in the area. Despite a lack of scientific evidence that dam removal will help the fish, or any study on the human impact of dam removal, the DOI is pressing forward to have the dams destroyed.
Over the years, many rural residents have been frustrated by federal environmental laws restricting logging and other forestry activities. The timber industry is dead. The mining industry is dead. The entire region is being deindustrialized and many residents and local leaders have stated that becoming a state would finally allow them to push the federal government to alter the onerous restrictions on government-owned land as well to forsake the private property rights restrictions being imposed upon them.
