Secret Green Group Attacks Secrecy - @CandBP

Conservative thinktanks step up attacks against Obama's clean energy strategy | Environment | guardian.co.uk

"These documents show for the first time that local Nimby anti-wind groups are co-ordinating and working with national fossil-fuel funded advocacy groups to wreck the wind industry," said Gabe Elsner, a co-director of the Checks and Balances, the accountability group which unearthed the proposal and other documents.

Conspiracy! shouts a secretive group with undeclared funders. They claim to be "Holding government officials, lobbyists and corporate management accountable to the public" but reveal nothing about themselves.

Funny how the same names keep popping up here:

Our funding is actually disclosed on our website which can be found with about 30 seconds of research.

We are pro-clean energy and proud of it. Our big name funded is a top cleantech attorney. The difference is that these fossil fuel-funded advocacy groups do not disclose their ties to the industry, and launder fossil fuel industry talking points from an "ideological" or "free market" position. The reality is that these groups are essentially acting as PR firms for the fossil fuel interests.

If we want a real debate on our energy future, the American public deserves to know where these attacks on clean energy are coming from - and from these documents, it appears that they are coming from advocacy groups funded by the fossil fuel industry.

That's you told, then.

But I suspect not.

Kind regards

@checksandbalancesproject - No such thing as clean energy you fool. The American public deserve better than ecoloons trying to screw things up for them. Now get back earning those tax dollars for you and your friends in the environmental lobby because we all know that is what it's all about baby. If you don't then you have been had my friend.
