EPA Takes Control ?

Came across this today online “Commentary
Sustainable development: latest tool for expanding EPA’s empire”http://www.cfact.org/a/2093/Sustainable-development-latest-tool-for-expanding-EPAs-empire
from the Web page:
…”That effort is already well underway. In June 2010, for example, the Obama administration, by way of an executive order, launched its Ocean Policy Initiative (OPI). The OPI will subject America’s waterways – oceans, rivers, bays, and the Great Lakes plus coastal and even inland areas – to federal zoning. Under the scheme, these areas will be managed according to “coastal and marine spatial planning.” As an unnamed administration official told the Los Angeles Times (July 19, 2010), “This sets the nation on the path of much more comprehensive planning to both conservation and sustainable use of resources.”…
Does this mean that the EPA will come to Racine to help The River plan with the full force of the Federal Goverment?
The Great Lakes holds a lot of Fresh water that maybe the Feds will mandate be sold outside the watersheds and what local group is able to stand up to the Feds?

We look at the page and read this:
…”The same holds true for sustainable development. The term – never defined with any precision – has been a mainstay of the United Nations, environmental organizations, and, increasingly, federal, state and local governments. A growing number of corporations – eager to parade their green credentials – frequently claim their products and technologies are “sustainable,” without ever telling the public what is meant by the term. Sustainable development is also a pillar of Agenda 21. Adopted at the UN Conference on Environment and Development (UNCED) at Rio de Janeiro in June 1992, Agenda 21 is described by the UN Division on Sustainable Development as “a comprehensive plan of action to be taken globally, nationally and locally by organizations of the United Nations Systems, Governments and Major Groups in every area in which human impacts (sic) on the environment.”…”

Look at Agenda 21 if you want to read some scarey ideas.
