The “save the planet” meme behind the United Nations / Rockefeller-funded ICLEI/Agenda 21 “sustainable development” mandate is clearly demonstrated in the curriculum changes in the public school system. As this article demonstrates, when legislation adds a curriculum requirement such as “Environmental Literacy,” it takes time away from other studies.
