Big Green and its efforts to weaken America

Thomas Pyle:
The Environmental Left relishes its carefully crafted image as a modern-day David battling the mighty fossil fuel giants in an epic struggle to save our dying planet. While it may sound compelling, this narrative is simply false.

What is conveniently left out, and often underreported, is that the environmental movement is a deep-pocketed and powerful force in American politics, orchestrating efforts to restrict the production and movement of our domestic natural resources and upend our energy markets. This multi-billion dollar effort weakens our nation’s energy prosperity, does little by way of environmental protection, and disproportionately harms the poor, the elderly, and those on fixed incomes.

In July, Huffington Post published an article perpetuating the myth that “Fossil Fuel Industries Outspend Clean Energy Advocates On Climate Lobbying By 10 To 1.” This misleading claim gives an incomplete picture of the green advocacy movement. More accurately, the green lobby has developed the breadth and depth to advance anti-fossil fuel campaigns through billionaire-funded activist groups not required to file as lobbying organizations.

A handful of under-the-radar foundations give millions, and some, hundreds of millions of dollars annually to support environmental causes and misguided policies, which in turn, lead to unnecessary anti-fracking ballot measures, pipeline hold ups, and “Keep It In the Ground” anti-fossil fuel advocacy touching all fifty states.
There is more.

These people are the useful idiots of the Russian and OPEC oil interests who would like to see the US be less competitive.  The Russians have been known to support Big Green with propaganda efforts.  Big Green tries to dive up the cost of exploration and delivery of fossil fuels and delay operations with frivolous lawsuits.  It also uses the Endangered "Feces" Act to try to kill operations.
