“Land…cannot be treated as an ordinary asset controlled by individuals and subject to the inefficiencies of the market. Private land ownership…contributes to social injustice.”*
*U.N. Habitat 1 Conference , Commission on Sustainable Development ,Vancouver, Canada 1976
“we call our processes something else, such as comprehensive planning, growth management, or smart growth”
“We redistribute de facto the world’s wealth by climate policy…One has to free oneself from the illusion that international climate policy is environmental policy. This has almost nothing to do with environmental policy anymore”*
*IPCC lead author and chairman of WG 3, Dr. Ottmar Eden-Hofer , November 13, 2010 interview
ICLEI USA : “Initiated in 2007, the Virginia State Climate Protection Network consists of local governments from across the state that are taking critical and innovative steps to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and develop in a more sustainable and just manner”
