C40 Cities: Sustainable Survival or a Communitarian Scheme


We have all seen those cute "tiny houses" that are comparable and appealing to that of a baby chick, but how many Americans realize they will be the homes of the future? Apparently the global leadership are taking "shrinking living space" very seriously, and developers are hoping to build micro-apartment units for city dwellers as small as 375 square feet – barely enough to squeeze in a bed, bathroom, and galley kitchen.

The Boston micro-apartment is close to the living space of apartments in China, where residents are limited to 28 square meters, equal to 301 square feet. New York City micro-apartment developers are shooting for 275 to 300 square feet, equal to 25.5 to 28 square meters. It takes simple living to a whole new level.

All of these ideas, which are being presented as innovation of the future, are coming from the Large Cities Climate Leadership Group, also known as C40 Cities. It is a network of the world’s megacities taking action to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, and it works with participating cities to address climate risks and impacts locally and globally.[1]

The fascinating part of this is that while mainstream propaganda once claimed that coastal populations should “abandon” cities “and retreat inland,” they have changed their tune. Since this seemed like an unlikely solution, now the answer is to convert these coastal cities into mega-regions where CO2 emissions could be controlled under Agenda 21 policies.[2]  

C40's History
C40 Cities was founded after a meeting of delegations from 25 cities at the October 2005 World Cities Leadership Climate Change Summit, organized by the former Mayor of London, Ken Livingstone, and supported by The Climate Group, BP, EDF Energy and Thames Water - all aiming to kick-start long-term international collaboration on the pressing issue of climate change.[3]

On August 1, 2006, the group signed a memorandum of understanding with the William J. Clinton Foundation's Climate Initiative (CCI), under which the Clinton Foundation agreed to provide technical and communications support.

Signing of the memorandum of understanding

The Clinton Climate Initiative is a program to help 15 cities (Bangkok, Berlin, Chicago, Houston, Johannesburg, Karachi, London, Melbourne, Mexico City, Mumbai, New York, Rome, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Tokyo, and Toronto) renovate/retrofit buildings with more energy efficient products. Clinton has managed to get ABN AMRO, Citi, Deutsche Bank, JP Morgan Chase, and UBS to each put up $1 billion "to finance cities and private building owners to undertake these retrofits at no net cost, doubling the global market for energy retrofit in buildings."[4

The group held their first summit in 2005 in London, and their second in 2007 in New York. At the second summit, 13 cities joined the group. The third summit was on May 18–21, 2009 in Seoul. In April 2011, C40 and the Clinton Climate Initiative announced plans to merge their climate leadership., then the 2011 summit was held May 31 to June 2 in São Paulo, Brazil.[5]

An Overview
Note in the following video who the co-conspirators are, and how they try to present this as "good rational economics." Each player knows it will be filling the pockets of the Elites. Their intentions are to get rich while creating change and setting up a control grid.

Innovation in New York City
Mayor Michael Bloomberg made an appearance in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, to attend the Rio + C40: Megacity Mayors Taking Action on Climate Change conference.

New York City's Mayor Michael Bloomberg serves as the chair for C40 Cities. These NY City tiny living spaces are smaller than currently allowed by building regulations, according to a statement by Bloomberg’s office; however the zoning regulations will be waived in order to construct the first of many compact housing models.

The intention is to construct an area in NY, and other participating cities, that accommodates restricted housing space, eliminates car use in favor for walking and bicycling and promotes mass transit. By herding the population into dense areas with smaller living spaces, it will instill the psychological transition toward accepting the Agenda 21 megacity concept.[6]

C40 seeks to control cities because they reportedly consume over two-thirds of the world’s energy, account for more than 75% of global CO2 emissions, and responsible for 80% more greenhouse gases.

Though this video repeats some of the same information as the video above, Mayor Bloomberg adds some detail to the objectives of the C40 group, and the laws it requires to achieve their goals.

The Third Industrial Revolution
Jeremy Rifkin has become the principal architect of the Third Industrial Revolution. This concept is based on the premise that we are at the end of the Industrial Age, which has caused our earth to run out of natural resources. In plans written over 30 years ago, this long-term economic sustainability agenda addresses the global economic crisis, energy security, and climate change.

Jeremy Rifkin's research is endorsed by the European Parliament, in a formal declaration passed in June 2007. His dreams are being realized through these tiny houses and micro-apartments.

Would you conclude that it's a money-making scheme, as well as a Communitarian control grid?

Current C40 Cities
Currently, the full members of the C40 are:
  • Africa: Addis Ababa, Cairo, Johannesburg, Lagos
  • North and South America: Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Caracas, Chicago, Houston, Lima, Los Angeles, Mexico City, New York City, Philadelphia, Rio de Janeiro, São Paulo, Toronto
  • Asia: Bangkok, Beijing, Dhaka, Hanoi, Hong Kong, Istanbul, Jakarta, Karachi, Mumbai, New Delhi, Seoul, Shanghai, Tokyo
  • Australia: Melbourne, Sydney
  • Europe: Athens, Berlin, London, Madrid, Moscow, Paris, Rome, Warsaw
Affiliate cities in the U.S. are: Portland, Austen, New Orleans, San Francisco, and Seattle.

For a current list, go to C40 Cities.

The Final Analysis
The wealthy corporate Elites are using the hoax of man-made climate change as a front that will permit them to build compact designer homes and business areas all under the guise of reducing carbon emissions. When you take a closer look, you begin to see how the money making scheme and more laws go hand-in-hand.

This is actually part of a greater political scheme, known as the Communitarian Third Way. This chart, by Niki Raapana, shows how the people and programs are all interrelated.

You can be assured that sustainable controls are being brought to local governments in new creative ways since the making of this graphic. It is all part of the Beasts system of government. The reforms will include growing food locally, the decline in meat production, and walking and bicycles will become the way to travel. The Elites say it will be for the betterment of humans and the earth, but it is all based upon a lie. When citizens of the global community will have no voice - the world government will get the true peace they were looking for.

Lastly, we will be told that our sacrifices will enable us, and generations to come, the ability to live on this planet. Perhaps then you will realize that Communitarianism is just another name for Communism.
