Not when it means surrendering your economic freedom to dubious schemes

Since 1992, "sustainability" has become the codeword for myriad radical
schemes to control the economy in the name of the environment.
UN's sustainability agenda, being promoted under the grand international
scheme of something called "Agenda 21," is a significant drain on
constructive economic activity.
In the United States, Green campaigners quietly insert Agenda 21 into
local governments by creating "sustainability" councils, initiatives and
similar schemes. Don't be surprised to learn that Agenda 21 may have
already come to your town. You should check.
People need to wake up and recognize the danger of Agenda 21.
The supreme irony is that these UN inspired initiatives not only burden
national sovereignty, but by depressing economic freedom and prosperity,
they damage nature. Nothing equals the power of prosperity to ease the
strain man places on the environment. Nothing harms nature like
poverty, which forces people to lean heavily on natural resources for
food, fuel and the basic needs of life. There's nothing "sustainable"
Recently, Australians woke up to the damage that was being done to their
country in the name of "sustainability" and global warming and threw
out their government. Australians declared that they would no longer
tolerate, "socialism masquerading as environmentalism."
