Maurice Strong makes the cover

Brief by Central Staff

Crestone – November 1997 – Colorado Central Magazine

A Strong cover story

The Sept. 1 edition of National Review, a conservative journal, featured Canadian oilman Maurice Strong on its cover, and devoted six pages inside to an article about him.

Central Colorado got brief mention: “…he ended up owning the 200,000-acre Baca Ranch in Colorado, now a `New Age’ center run by his wife, Hanne. (Among the seekers at Baca are Zen and Tibetan Buddhist monks, a breakaway order of Carmelite nuns, and followers of a Hindu guru called Ba ba ji.)”

The general thrust of the article was that Strong uses his United Nations environmental offices to push for treaties that limit national powers, thereby giving the U.N. control over American land-use decisions, factory emissions, and the like.
