“Fossil energy accounted for 82% of global energy consumption last year, down from 85% in 2016, so fossil fuels are headed to zero, right? No, total energy consumption is growing—last year it jumped a walloping 5.8%, the biggest increase ever, including a 2.6% increase in renewables and a 5.7% increase in coal. The demand for energy will keep growing as a billion-plus humans seek to rise from poverty. Renewables will be lucky to hold even their current share of the market.… Still, the biggest wonder is the sheer size of the taxpayer sum we are getting ready to spend on climate change when nobody can honestly pretend it will have an impact on climate change.” ~ Holman W.

In 2015, UN member states adopted the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development, with the agreement’s centerpiece being the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The SDGs, despite the elevated verbiage that Mr. Global uses to promote them, are a dangerous inversion of what they claim to be—and represent technocracy on steroids. This week, Dutch author, researcher, investigative journalist, and photographer Rypke Zeilmaker joins me to look under the hood of the 2030 Agenda. With the Netherlands playing a leading role in implementing the 2030 agenda, Rypke was well positioned to research and interpret SDG doublespeak. (Part 2 of Rypke’s series on “The End of Nature Conservation,” listed below in Related Reading, dissects the “green” NGO movement in the Netherlands.)
Through his work and his Interesting Times website, Rypke “challenges you in word and image to look at life on our planet in a different way than you may be used to.” His motivation to do a deep-dive on the SDGs arose out of his love of nature, culture, country, and region—and especially love of his native Friesland. As the author of a book on Friesland’s history—which he describes as his magnum opus—Rypke is steeped in the region’s traditions in defense of freedom, including the motto “Rather dead than a slave.” This cultural heritage has allowed Rypke to grasp at the most profound level what is at stake with the SDG steamroller.
Trained as a science writer, Rypke began paying attention to how science manipulated data about nature for political purposes—and was able to recognize the weaponization of the conservation and environmentalist movements. “Following the money” has also been a helpful tool for understanding the core threat hiding behind the SDGs—namely, the build-out of a global control system.
The first step in taking action is always to understand what is happening. Zeilmaker’s contributions will help you achieve greater clarity on why the SDGs are a wolf in sheep’s clothing.
