Media is still trying to ignore Russian ties to radical environmentalists
...This is a long piece that details the direct and indirect ties to the environmentalist groups by Russia in hopes of stopping the shale revolution in the US. I suspect they are ignoring it because it does not fit their preferred narrative about Trump's victory.
We know that Putin is fanatically committed to expanding Russia’s sphere of influence and strengthening her economic position. We know the risk U.S. fracking poses to Russia’s economy, and we know of direct Russian ties to firms that contribute tens of millions of dollars to environmental extremists.
As Democrats and their media friends continue to obsess over Trump surrogates’ ties to Russia, it’s incumbent on everyone else to further examine Russia’s ties to anti-fracking groups. After all, we wouldn’t want a foreign power to influence our public policy. Or elections.
