Greenpeace, with e-mails to CRU is funded by the Rockefeller Foundations - all four, along with Sierra Club and WWF. Maurice Strong ,father of
Environmentalism/Global Warming and Al Gore's good buddy is a trustee of the Rockefeller foundation and the head of not one but THREE oil companies.
The Rockefeller Foundations are founded on Standard Oil Money. Exxon is a spin-off of Standard Oil and still owned by the Rockefellers.
Greenpeace is a United Nations NGO
"Very few of even the larger international NGOs are operationally democratic, in the sense that members elect officers or direct policy on
particular issues," notes Peter Spiro. "Arguably it is more often money than membership that determines influence, and money more often represents
the support of centralized elites, such as major foundations, than of the grass roots." The CGG has benefited substantially from the largesse of the
MacArthur, Carnegie, and Ford Foundations. www.afn.org...
Maurice Strong is a member of the Club of Rome:
[align=center]"The common enemy of humanity is man.
In searching for a new enemy to unite us, we came up with the
idea that pollution, the threat of global warming, water shortages
, famine and the like would fit the bill. All these dangers are caused
by human intervention, and it is only through changed attitudes
and behavior that they can be overcome.
The real enemy then, is humanity itself."
- Richard Haass, Club of Rome Document, 1991
“The First Global Revolution” p. 71,75 1993 [/align]
Now what was that about the AGW/environmental movement not being in the pay of the oil companies???
