UK Green Lobby Funded by ‘Anti-Immigrant Multi-Millionaire’

A reclusive American multi-millionaire who has backed anti-immigrant and population control campaigns has funded green charities in Britain through a charitable foundation. Fred Stanback, heir to the Stanback headache powder fortune, is said to have backed household name charities including Friends of the Earth and Greenpeace. The NGOs have directly lobbied UK ministers and bankrolled parliamentary candidates…

Stanback’s support for controversial anti-immigrant and population control causes has been well documented in the US media. Population control advocates are closely linked to wealthy American environmentalists; they believe that environmental problems stem from there being too many people on the planet. Stanback has:

  • Donated $500,000 to the Federation for American Immigration Reform, a group whose leaders are said to have ties to white supremacists and eugenicists;
  • Purchased $5,000 worth of copies of the novel The Camp of the Saints from the American Immigration Control Foundation to distribute. The book is widely acknowledged as a racist work and has been described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as a “racist fantasy”;
  • Funded a Duke University internship programme which placed interns at anti-immigration organisations, until a public outcry forced Duke University to remove these organisations from the approved list after the affiliations came to light in 2013;
  • Raised concerns that “Catholic interests” were the primary motivation behind the Wall Street Journal’s opposition to immigration control.

Stanback is said to channel his donations to green groups through the Foundation for the Carolinas (FFTC), a non-profit community foundation. According to US IRS filings, the FFTC has given:

  • $6,000,000 to Friends of the Earth;
  • $3,000,000 to Greenpeace;
  • $2,000,000 to the Dogwood Alliance (a US organisation that worked with Friends of the Earth on a major campaign to shut down biomass plants and other related energy businesses in the U.K).

The report concludes:

“The financial connections between these organisations and major funders like Fred Stanback strongly suggest that these environmental NGOs willingly received funding from the same source that funds population control and anti-immigrant groups on a large scale, and apparently without anyone in the environmental world publicly questioning the moral or financial integrity of using the money.”

Greenpeace’s Wind Spin

Greenpeace, the Green Party and Caroline Lucas are celebrating a 50% drop in the price of offshore wind power with tweets galore using the graphic above. It sounds like great news for electricity bill payers that the price of wind power has dropped 50%. It is not quite as good as it sounds.

The government’s guaranteed price to wind power producers has dropped 50% in 2 years. The price to the consumer will still be set in the energy market place. A welcome saving to taxpayers it may be, it is not a 50% drop in the price to the consumer. Shale gas would likely be even cheaper if the Greens got out of the way and let the industry get on with fracking it. The Green Party and their allies are the cause of higher energy prices.

Caroline Lucas is making out that that somehow the even more heavily subsidised nuclear industry could be ditched in favour of renewables. In reality given that wind power produces less than 5% of the UK’s energy needs and the output is basically zero for 64% of the time this is not very likely.  She’s spinning more than the wind turbines.

No Takers on Ex-Greenpeace President’s $100,000 Climate Bet

In the wake of December’s Paris climate agreement, environmental scientist and Greenpeace co-founder and President Dr Patrick Moore offered a stonker of a bet:

With a $100 billion climate fund backing 188 nations’ commitments to cut greenhouse gas levels – including a minimum 40% cut from the EU – this bet seems like a sure investment for eco-warriors with cash to burn.

But more than a month later, nobody has taken up Dr Moore’s offer. Do the climate lobby not have faith in the “world’s greatest diplomatic success” to have a flutter?

Greenpeace Tools Up for BBC Propaganda War

Greenpeace have raided the BBC, New York Times and Vice to create their own crack team of “investigative journalists“. The new hires include former Newsnight and Panorama correspondent Meirion Jones and former BBC Energy and Business reporter Damian Kahya. Who would have thought that employees of the impartial BBC would feel at home working for the Green lobby?

Amusingly, Greenpeace’s UK executive director John Sauven has claimed his newly acquired journalists will act as a counter to “a world that is full of greenwash“. That’s Gaia’s job…

Nonsense and Insensibility: Emma Thompson’s Poetry Protest

Following former celebrity Charlotte Church’s musical protest against Shell last week, Greenpeace have wheeled out Emma Thompson to fight climate change… with a poem.

Choice lines include “do you think we should just burn, baby, burn” and “do you just think we should boil, baby boil“. She also appears to compare energy sector workers to Nazis. Safe to say it went on much longer than the presenter was expecting…

Voice of an Oil Drill

CNVsc8vWcAAmvBV

Former celebrity Charlotte Church took a break from “lowering and deferring” her tax today to sing a song titled “Requiem for Arctic Ice” in front of Shell’s London offices. She was taking part in a Greenpeace-organised musical protest against Shell’s Arctic drilling operations. It seems she was quite choked up after watching some ice melt:

I can’t see how anyone could see footage of the Arctic melting and not feel moved. It’s terrifying to think of what we’re doing to this planet. This song just felt so appropriate to why I came here today. I wanted to capture the sorrow and regret that feels tied up with the melting ice, and the bitter irony of Arctic oil drilling.

Arctic sea ice increased by around a third last year…

Greenpeace Dupe Supporters Into Thinking They Owned Heathrow Protest Plot

airplot heathrow

Greenpeace duped almost 100,000 people into believing they co-owned a plot of land in the middle of the prosed Heathrow third runway. In fact Greenpeace sold the land in 2012 without bothering to tell anyone…

The land which Greenpeace and their backers Alistair McGowan, Emma Thompson and Zac Goldsmith christened the ‘AirPlot‘ was purchased back in 2009, becoming the focal point of the anti-Heathrow expansion. People were persuaded to sign up as co-owners and quite reasonably believed that Greenpeace would hold onto the land indefinitely. Locals and activists have been shocked to discover Greenpeace didn’t own the land outright and had a buyback agreement with the previous landowner…

Even Cameron had a tree planted there on his behalf during the height of his ‘blue is the new green’ phase. Dave’s tree has withered away and died…

Greenpeace’s New Weapon: Magic Mud

greenpeace weapon

Greenpeace have enlisted a new “sacred, powerful, spiritual, healing and protecting” weapon to help them in the battle against the forces of evil fossil fuel extracting: magic mud. Gaia believes the mud in question is tǝmǝł, an ochre coloured paste traditionally used by the Musqueam First Nation people of Canada.

“It is one of the most sacred, powerful, spiritual, healing and protecting medicines that people have being using for as long as we have existed… It protects our light, it protects the goodness in us, it protects us especially if we have to do work where there is bad energy. We aren’t just going up against Shell and their drilling, what we are actually standing up against is the evil and the greed that has put this world in the condition that we are in right now. We need as much protection as possible..”

No wonder Putin took no chances with them..

Goodbye Ed Davey, You Won’t Be Missed

davey

Ed Davey, the former Energy Secretary saw his 7,560 majority wiped out this morning and Gaia couldn’t be more delighted. The flip-flopping, windmill lover stacked his brief with vested interestscosied up to Greenpeace, attempted to control the press and spend most of his time ignoring his department and trying to cling onto his constituency. That went well then..

Astonishingly, the man who was once in charge of of Britain’s energy policy, is on the record claiming that fracking won’t boost the economy or reduce energy prices. Good riddance, let’s hope Owen Paterson is about to receive a phone call from Dave..

Greenpeace Poll: Majority of People Want Fracking

Greenpeace have been left with egg on their face today after their own poll revealed that the majority of the British public are in favour of fracking. Hoping to demonstrate that pro-fracking parliamentary candidates could lose their seats, the far-left pressure group commissioned Com Res to survey the British public’s attitude towards hydraulic fracturing.

The results? 65% of the Great British Public aren’t opposed to fracking.

Quote of the Day

Noel Gallagher on Brexit:

“In England, the Brexit thing, it’s like, I can’t believe there’s so much noise about it… It was put to the people as a vote, the people voted. That’s democracy. F***ing get over it.”
