organization purporting to advance any “Environmental Issue”:
“Environmental activism has become a multibillion dollar industry in the U.S. Campaigns to save the whales or stop mining beg average Americans for their support through donation of their hard earned dollars. These environmental campaigns also receive millions from charitable foundations such as the PEW Foundation, Turner Foundation, and Heinz Foundation. But what most don’t know when they donate to a cause to ‘save the rainforest’ or ‘save the polar bear’ is that their money could end up being used for partisan activities that are only tangentially related, if related at all, to the cause for which they are intended.”
Many of these so-called “Environmental” groups do little more than file lawsuits to block domestic energy production, thereby increasing the price we all pay for all manner of energy (to no useful end).
