Maes acknowledged that some might find his theories “kooky,” but he said there are valid reasons to be worried.
“At first, I thought, ‘Gosh, public transportation, what’s wrong with that, and what’s wrong with people parking their cars and riding their bikes? And what’s wrong with incentives for green cars?’ But if you do your homework and research, you realize ICLEI is part of a greater strategy to rein in American cities under a United Nations treaty,” Maes said.

“Some would argue this document that mayors have signed is contradictory to our own Constitution,” Maes said.
