Environmental Economics

Jim Boyd at Common Resources : A raft of  so-called “anti-sustainability” bills have been introduced in various state legislatures. These bills tie sustainability to a moss-covered, 20-year old United Nations document called Agenda 21.  The point of the bills is to suggest that the sustainability agenda is a creation of the UN designed to undermine individual freedoms.
