Recently W. Cecil Steward, dean emeritus of the UNL College of Architecture (Lincoln, Nebraska), launched what can only be described as a diatribe against a talk I gave recently in Lincoln. My topic was Sustainable Development and how it is transforming out nation. In his article, Mr. Steward, rather than provide any substance on the issue, prefers instead to use words designed to paint me as an extremist playing on people’s fear.
Specifically, Mr. Steward accuses me of misrepresenting Lincoln’s local Comprehensive Development Plan, and its imposition of Sustainable Development as a “cover for a United Nations based international conspiracy.” I have worked on this issue for more than 18 years and have routinely experienced similar attacks against my message and my character in cities where I have appeared. For some reason those working to enforce Sustainable Development policies scramble to discredit me and blow a well orchestrated smokescreen to cover their work. Apparently honest debate and disagreement are not part of their plans.
