Green Groups Are No Longer Promoting a Cleaner Environment

Speaking of the left’s hyper-obsession with climate change, we read this recent headline from the New York Times with a mixture of shock and disgust.

Green groups are supposed to be securing a pristine environment by keeping our rivers and streams clean. They are supposed to be preserving wildlife, maintaining the splendor of our national parks, and saving elephants and tigers.

Not anymore. We’ve warned on these pages that the radical climate agenda and its lunatic campaign to end fossil fuels is detracting from achievable green objectives and making the condition of the environment worse.

Now the NY Times has confirmed our greatest fears. We quote:

A significant shift in donor contributions to nonprofits fighting climate change in recent years has left some of the nation’s biggest environmental organizations facing critical shortfalls in programs on toxic chemicals, radioactive contamination and wildlife protection.

The Natural Resources Defense Council, The Sierra Club, Defenders of Wildlife and the Environmental Working Group, which have been at the forefront of efforts to clean up waste water, regulate pesticides and adopt tougher standards for atomic power plants, are facing similar financial problems…

“Funders that had a nuclear program or a toxics program have left those fields entirely and have gone to climate change.

In 2022 the green groups spent and raised $8 billion on climate change activities. That doesn’t fully include the tens of billions of dollars that governments are spending on climate issues.

So far, half a trillion dollars have been spent and the needle has not moved one iota. Fossil fuel use was at an all-time high in 2022 and 2023, and carbon emissions have been climbing rather than receding. So what has all this money bought? The United Nations now says trillions need to be spent each year to stop global warming.

The fanatics in the Biden administration and the billionaire donor class insist that we must save the planet from carbon emissions, and if that means retreating from the fight against real pollution – so be it.
