The Doubt About Environmental Organizations

In some serious meeting, the environment is considered as clean air and water, preservation of significant natural resources, healthy animals, birds and forests and protecting all of the above. People would not think that there is a separation between interests, because there are some things unnatural, but parties are firmly founded to get self-interest as a motivating factor. It is based on competition for grant money, the Snake in the Garden of Eden.



The massive amounts of money expended by Federal, State and local agencies and private citizens for environmental use is never enough, never used for the “right purpose,” never going to actually solve anything,but must remain like a river, ever flowing. Nature is practically boundless and always under threat from many, many destructive elements, increasingly caused by mankind’s intrusion. Additionally, by never quite reaching a goal, the “further studies needed,” get funded and people keep their jobs or move on to another cause, based on career building semi-success.


So, we now have many,many people working in the field throughout the world, from universities,
government entities and non-governmental organizations trying to “save something,” and they create marketing programs to sell their message and bring more money into the fund.


By far the biggest contributors are taxpayers, whose money is distributed to The Nature Conservancy, Audubon, American Bird Conservancy, and hundreds of others. I never recall being asked for approval of the distribution or the list of recipients, although I did read in TNC’s magazine that they no longer need members, because federal grants fill their needs. One might ask what TNC does to warrent such largesse from our government agencies, but the answer is simple: TNC and Audubon frequently appear as experts before the House and Senate and
enthusiastically approved programs proposed by the agencies, programs through which the
environmental groups benefit, financially………which leads to the subject of ethics.


Ethics in the environmental field is a subject S. Dillon Ripley, who headed Smithsonian, was very interested in and which concerned him. He pointed out the increasing use of questionable data,
questionable conclusions, to justify funding. This has only grown, since, and is pervasive in most
environmental fields, on all levels, in all areas of specialty, infrequently questioned.


The environmental field itself has become a huge industry,within a sub culture that supports many students,many ex-state environmental officers, federal employees, people of wealth who want to create an image in their communities, as caring,thoughtful, knowledgeable people…… is almost as good as being a highly publicized rock star, without the bahavior problems.


We mere mortals have to take a look at penguins, as an example:


If you have seen the History Channel documentary on them, you know at no time are they dancing and that it is the cruelest life imaginable and utterly outside the realm of saving. Leave them to live as they have for however long there have been penguins. Stop the Audubon and Nature Conservancy tourism boats, which disrupt their lives and destroy things, such as coral.


Save trees, birds, fish or crustaceans, if we can, and stop the massive lies that arrive in your postbox from places we used to trust, such as Cornell University, which takes money and claims success at finding the Ivory Billed Woodpecker, when that never happened,according to leading professional journals.


We, the public, are generous and not stupid. Lies from experts simply diminish our faith and trust in all such groups. It is a breach of the public’s trust for Cornell/Audubon to continue along these lines. Requesting donations, based on lies will come back to haunt them, but they don’t care, they have a generous Uncle Sam, who needs them. Remind them that you and I are Uncle Sam and we are tired of the lies.


Contribute to your local environmental groups, more likely accountable to your community.
