UNsustainable Development Goals: An Overview with Rypke Zeilmaker

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. Jenkins, Jr., “Why Pretend Green Pork Will Stop Climate Change?,” Wall Street Journal, July 29, 2022

By Catherine Austin Fitts

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.

This was a good conversation! I love it when people take apart this SDG climate change agenda and everything around it.
It is indeed one big asset/money grab away from the people and into the big companies/organisations. ESG is just one part of it.

All these colourful benevolent goals, expose it for what they really are whereever you go in a subtle but firm way point out the hypocrisy and lies.

I love the comparison by Rypke between Co2 “sins” and payments to the medieval Catholic church, it’s indeed similar. Co2 sins indeed.

Also interesting point Catherine made on how they are attacking the most productive people in society first.
I see this in the governments “Three waters” policy here in New Zealand which is in essence an attack by the government on farmers property rights in the name of climate change and biodiversity.

Dairy farming is one of our main industries
and yet at the same time more DIE ( diversity, equity, inclusion) commissars with 6 figure salaries are being hired in companies by the day…

They are indeed going for the most productive people first.

Excellent interview and very engaging conversation with Rypke. Your interviews with brilliant Europeans has been extraordinary in obtaining a non-American perspective solifying we are all in this together, have same major concerns. At least a 100 year plan put into action after the founding of the UN in 1945, I am thankful the League of Nations was not formed after WW1 due to our US representatives voting against it. This is the biggest con, theft and return to slavery disguised brilliantly in history and as Rypke said “once you see it you cannot unsee it.” It is evil and non human. Decades ago it always got my goat when traveling that the UN/UNESCO claimed all these World Heritage sites, especially hiking in the CA John Muir Wilderness as an example. I would always say it was a way to invade the world and steal all the prime sites for themselves. Those sites belong to each country, not the UN. Now there are 1,154 monuments in over 167 countries approximately! The best propaganda ever. Yes, we must be prepared before the final wall of the digital concentration camp control grid snaps into place. Retired in Western NY, I plan to depart for the famous American Indian Red Jacket’s land near me. I refuse. I look foward to future interviews and was sorry it ended. Thank you both.

Thank you for covering this. I read many years ago about 50-100 year old hardwood trees being harvested in S. Carolina(all within 50 miles of the coast of the Atlantic) for shipment to the UK to be burned for producing electricity.

What a crime against nature!

I never fail to be amazed at their level of greed.

I agree with Sandra, that it is great when Catherine interviews Europeans to get their perspective. I wish Catherine had let him just talk without interruption. I wanted to hear MORE!!! Europe has been through 2 world wars and they have so much to teach us: what lessons they have learned to prepare them for “WW3.”

Catherine, where is Part 2 on food?

I came across Albert Camus’ “THE HUMAN CRISIS” 1946 speech in response to the war at age 32 (he died in his 40s) presented in English by the actor Viggo Mortensen in 2016, 70 years on, at Columbia University. It was Camus’ first and only trip to the US. Very well done.
