THE WILDLANDS PROJECT
Step by step, piece by piece, the Wildlands Project is coming to fruition. The Project, foundational to the U.N.Biodiversity Treaty which was never ratified by the U.S. Senate, calls for approximately 50 percent of the United States to be set aside as "wildlands", where no human can enter. Much has been accomplished over the past 10 years toward that goal, and the pace is stepping up, with the help of the federal agencies under Clinton/Gore.
From control of the water - to taking land out of private ownership - to "protecting" numerous species - all the pieces of the puzzle work together to form the complete picture.
Following are just a few of the news stories that reflect the piecemeal workings to attain the overall goal. People remain unaware of the size and scope of the operation because land is being taken in the name of "endangered species". Other articles on this site address that issue.
Many of the stories under the current news for this month involve the "taking" of private property and methods of changing the status of private land ownership into public land ownership. Look at these in light of The Wildlands Project, and the pieces of the puzzle will begin to fit.
Please help us add to this area of the site by submitting website addresses where stories are being carried, to which we can link. You can email links and/or stories here: firstname.lastname@example.org
Implementation of The Wildlands Project (via the UN Biodiversity Treaty) is set out in Agenda 21. Read the actual document here.

The Wildlands Project flowered at the end of the 20th century by holding out hope for a 21st century environmental future. It offers hope for the restoration of a wild America. It is a vision both intellectually modest and morally breathtaking - a welcome relief from a century that was intellectually overweening and morally decrepit. - Carl Pope, Executive Director of the Sierra Club
