Obama Climate Change Executive Order Could Impact Property Rights, States’ Rights

Obama executive orderPresident Obama has signed a climate change executive order that critics say amounts to a dramatic executive branch overreach in authority that could impact property rights and states’ rights.

The White House says the order will make the process of “streamlining sustainability initiatives” far easier.

Obama signed the executive order in early November, some five months after announcing his new Climate Action Plan, which included climate pollution limits on both new and existing power plants for the very first time. The plan also includes plans to increase renewable energy production on federal land, aid communities in dealing with higher temperatures, and increase energy efficiency standards.

But opponents of the plan say it paved the way for side-stepping Congressional oversight on environmental issues and once again diminished states’ rights. The president’s executive order created a task force to advise his administration on the proper way to respond to wildfires, severe storms, droughts and other natural disasters allegedly brought on by climate change.

President Obama’s task force will also offer guidance on response standards for other “potential impacts” spawned by so-called climate change scenarios. The guiding group created by the executive order included seven Democratic governors and the Republican governor of Guam. Hand-picked mayors from 14 cities and two other local leaders round out the list of climate change advisors. The task force includes California Governor Jerry Brown, Washington Governor Jay Inslee, Hawaii Governor Neil Abercrombie, Delaware Governor Jack Markell, Maryland Governor Martin O’Malley, Vermont Governor Peter Shumlin and Illinois Governor Pat Quinn.

The climate change executive order task force will review how federal money is spent on bridges, roads, flood control projects and other infrastructure programs which President Obama believes are impacted by global warming.

According to a FoxNews report, critics say the task force has the power to:

  • “Hold back money to communities unless they meet new standards on various items and agendas set by the Federal Government. For example, using new policies that will encourage communities to rebuild to pre-disaster standards instead of stronger ones.
  •  Issue a “mandate to bring sweeping new changes to land use and resource policies.
  • Control and refocus “climate change data and use of it to push a new agenda into every priority of the Federal Government.
  • “Create the need for a new internal organization for coordination efforts during a government sequestration and possible future shutdowns.

A White House release after the climate change executive order was signed stated that even though the country has worked to curb carbon pollution, government officials need to “improve how states and communities” respond to extreme weather events, upgrade building codes, and address climate change impact on infrastructure.

One former senior government official who spoke to Fox News about the climate change executive order said, “The devil is in the details. Who gets to decides what sustainability is? Or what its outcome means?

Others wonder if the plan is part of what is known as Agenda 21. As previously reported by Off The Grid News, Agenda 21 is a voluntary UN non-binding action plan which is supposedly focused solely on sustainable development. It based upon a program to abolish poverty and the “protection of fragile environments” by pushing citizens into metropolitan areas. America is a “signatory” country to Agenda 21. Since the plan is a non-binding statement and not a treaty, a vote on inclusion was not needed. More than 528 major and moderate-sized American cities are members of an international sustainability organization that reportedly supports the implementation of Agenda 21.

  5. you can see it happening before your very eyes. The satanic destiny of America’s Masonic origins is being played out. If you sit back and pretend that it’s not real then you’re fate is sealed. Now is the time to stand up. Time is very short.

  6. Moron statists and useful idiots advancing Agenda 21 for the globalists and their goal of destroying the US.

  7. I want to open by saying I am against both rep an dem parties I voted for the pres the first term but did not repeat that. I feel anyone that cares should not be afraid to release this info about them self. Any law or rule that takes freedom away is bad now I am not a scientist I have heard many say global warming is real I have read that fox an the rep party have paid scientist to say what they want them to say. If global warming is real this might help fix it for our children or do they not matter. If global warming does not exist it will give us a cleaner world win win either way but the rich that has been showing tripple profits would be upset. As normal I bet this bill goes to far one way and the vocal ones against it want to go to far the other way. Think for your self vote no more rep or dem politicians vote for Americans that work here and spend money here some one that can agree on things without a lawyer some one that wrights things out to be understood by all. Good luck America

    • Really? Wood has been used to heat and cook since the creation of man and just now it is causing global warming and dirty air. Liberals are pathetic!
