The United Nations in New York held a signing ceremony Thursday in which heads of state, foreign ministers and government officials with “formal powers” gathered to sign the 197-nation Paris Climate Agreement. U.N. insiders understood the signing of the Paris Climate Agreement was intended to affirm the organization’s “2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development,” a plan to “end poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and tackle climate change by 2030.”

It’s a plan some critics call a “blueprint for global governance.” As WND reported, Agenda 2030 is seen as a “reboot” of the controversial Agenda 21 plan, adopted in 1992, which the U.N. has described as a “comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations system, governments and major groups, in every area in which human impacts on the environment.” FULL REPORT
