Letter to the Editor: Agenda 21 in Boston, MADear Editor:
The Banker and Tradesman
reported that the Boston City Council by a 9-4 voteapproved of Mayor Menino's Energy Disclosure Ordinance. This Orwellian rule willforce owners of building over 35,000 square feet to report to the city their water andenergy use. In a statement, Menino said that "In order for Boston to continue to be asustainable leader, our buildings must aggressively invest in cost effective energyefficiency." Menino claims that "Bostonians demand buildings with high performanceand this ordinance will encourage building owners to meet that demand" In acommunity that values freedom and liberty, the private sector has no need for intrusivemandates from government officials who know nothing about running commercialproperty, and the dynamics of the market. It is the nature of free people who ownproperty to be as cost effective and efficient as possible. Menino knows nothing abouteffective energy efficiency but he is a disciple of the discredited billionaire Al Gore.Menino didn't not come up with this unconstitutional, job killing and rent increasingscheme on his own. It originated with the International Council on Local EnvironmentalInitiatives (ICLEI). ICLEI was founded in 1990 at the United Nation's headquarters inNew York for the sole purpose of implementing the UN's power grab know as Agenda21. In addition to ICLEI, Boston belongs to the state-wide Agenda 21 promotingscheme called Green Communities.Cities and towns that belong to ICLEI and Green Communities are implementingdozens of initiatives that kill jobs, restrict home and business owners while makingsome contractors and wind and solar panel companies wealthy at the taxpayer expense.Bostonians should reject Agenda 21 and schemes like this energy disclosureordinance.
