County Board of Supervisor memberis taking a matter that some are calling a big fight over small potatoes into herown hands. Since its new members came onboard this past year, supervisors havefought over Roanoke County's membership in ICLEI the International Council for LocalEnvironmental Initiatives. WDBJ7's DavidKaplan joins us now. David, why are some members so against inclusion into this organization? Some have argued the 12-hundred bucks the county spends on dues formembership in ICLEI is a waste of money. There's also a concern, mainly among theConservative Republicans on theBoard, that a membership could eventually mean aloss of property rights to the United Nations. The county will soon plan to cut ties with the organization, which provides data about carbon emissions to localities. Today, SupervisorCharlotte Moore announced she personally was joining an organization of local,elected officials that will give the wholecounty access to the same database. Moore reiterates this was a personal decision she thinks can benefit the county. I personally will beable to receive thesoftware which is the new softwarethat ICLEI provides, and a lot of the resources. It won't be 100 percent like wedid through the membership in ICLEI but it will also be free to our taxpayers. It's still unclear if Moore's individualinvolvement in this organization meansthe entire county can use this database. I spoke with HollinsSupervisor Al Bedrosian who'sbeen against inclusion in this organization all along, he says Moore's move todaywill have to go up to vote and he'll vote against it. David, Bedrosian is one of the Republicans who's been against ICLEI this whole time, did he say why?He ackowledges weneed to do what we can to keep theenvironment clean, but doesn't believe inman-made global warming, believesthat organizations like ICLEI are based on a fundamental lie.As he put it to me, the organizationcould pay them to be in it, and he'd still vote against it.
