Global warming campaigners are spoiled. When they get together for a UN conference they don't expect to be challenged. The last thing they expected was CFACT!
As one reporter put it, “The first thing to know about the crusade against Exxon by state attorneys general is that it isn’t about the law. The second thing to know is that it isn’t even about Exxon. What these liberal prosecutors really want to shut down is a universe of their most-hated ideological opponents.”
Resolute Forest Products, after initially going along with Greenpeace and its green allies who sought to put most of Canada's boreal forests off limits to logging, has begun to fight back, given that Greenpeace continued its campaign to bankrupt the company even after it signed onto the crippling deal. Resolute has filed lawsuits against Greenpeace in both the U.S. and Canada.
The environmental group Break Free from Fossil Fuels is planning to “shut down the world’s most dangerous fossil fuel projects” in a protest this May through mass mobilization and “civil disobedience.”
It is evident from history that periods of global warming led to health, welfare, and prosperity. Global cooling led to crop failure, disease, and hardship. That's why radicals want history expunged.
Greenpeace has a long history of cultural insensitivity and offending indigenous people. CFACT's Craig Rucker took them on at their COP 20 press conference. Watch now.
Holding Big Green accountable: Electrify Africa initiatives should finally trump environmentalist opposition to big power plants
CFACT Senior Policy Advisor Paul Driessen says that Big Green groups, which demand accountability from corporations and denounce all projects requiring fossil fuel energy, refuse to be held accountable for the death and destruction that results from their vetoing of electricity, food (including Golden Rice), and life-saving technologies to the poor in India, African nations, and other nations lacking adequate infrastructure. Some countries are fighting back against these unwanted pests -- Canada took away Greenpeace's nonprofit status, while India has banned the use of foreign NGO money to support domestic campaigns.
Dr. Patrick Moore: "I am confident that history will bear me out, both in terms of the futility of relying on computer models to predict the future, and the fact that warmer temperatures are better than colder temperatures for most species."
Denied instant gratification of their global warming dreams of redistribution, up to 800 members of extreme enviro-left nongovernmental organizations walked out of COP 19, the UN climate summit in Warsaw, Poland. The Left may have left the stadium, but are still very much in the game.
Russia has amended its piracy charges against thirty detained Greenpeace campaigners. The new charge of hooliganism carries a penalty of up to seven years in prison -- A prospect leaving little room for comfort as temperatures drop in Murmansk.
Patrick Moore has launched a new campaign demanding the enviro-giant drop its "immoral" opposition to life and sight-saving golden rice.
Greenpeace is using its $300 million-plus income to stifle one of the most important advances in human nutrition and disease prevention.
Fourteen and counting. Greenpeace parent: "She was just looking forward to seeing polar bears and never thought for one minute this sort of thing would happen."
We could help the U.S. Treasury and take burdens off working Americans by removing the tax exemptions for advocacy groups like Greenpeace, the Ruckus Society, PETA, and even the Council on American Islamic Relations (recently renamed The Washington Trust Foundation). Greenpeace is no longer tax exempt in Canada and New Zealand - why should working people subsidize these powerful adversaries?
Russian authorities have charged five Greenpeace campaigners with piracy in Murmansk and are continuing to detain and investigate as many as 25 more. If convicted they face 10-15 years in prison.
