At this post is an outstanding example that exposes a fraudulent opinion being given by the Sierra Club. This is an opinion being used in the media to help sell bird slaughtering wind projects. As pointed out, there is no scientific validity for the opinions being given.
"Clearly, if the Sierra Club did not review any detailed information specific to the Lighthouse Wind project and did not review studies and findings related to the Lighthouse Wind project, then the Sierra Club has no basis to offer opinions about the environmental impacts of the Lighthouse Wind project in Somerset. This raises serious concerns about the validity of the Sierra Club and the sincerity of their positions."
This author is much nicer than I am. I have seen so many wind energy lies printed from Audubon, Sierra Club and Royal Society for the Protection of Birds (RSPB), that as an expert, I have to refer to these charities for what they are...........Criminal Fraudsters.
Read about Charity Fraud below and see how it fits into the activities of conservation groups pretending pretending to be protecting birds.
Charity fraud, type of fraud that occurs when charitable organizations that solicit funds from the public for philanthropic goals, such as seeking cures for diseases or aiding the families of slain police officers, solicit donations in a deceptive manner or use the monies that they collect for purposes not intended by the donors. Charities are subject to the kinds of fraud that can also plague business organizations, such as embezzlement and misappropriation of funds by executives.
Establishing and prosecuting charity fraud is not necessarily straightforward. Many scholars agree that money solicited by persons or groups that are not legitimate charitable organizations constitutes charity fraud, but the question of fraud is complicated when considering charities that use a high percentage of donations for administrative costs or additional fund-raising rather than for the charitable cause. These kinds of issues, as well as the very large number of charitable organizations worldwide, make charity fraud difficult to monitor and eradicate.
Charity fraud is perceived as a particularly abhorrent kind of deceptive business practice because it abuses the trust of altruistic persons who offer donations with the expectation that they are assisting those in need. Charity fraud can result in a lasting backlash because those responsible have manipulated the emotions and generosity of donors in order to elicit a donation, leading to anger and disillusionment if it is revealed that the charity and philanthropic promises were invalid. Disillusionment and suspicion caused by fraudulent charitable solicitation or misappropriation of funds has the additional effect of tainting the fund-raising appeals of legitimate charities, which suffer by association with those who defraud donors.
7) Charitable Organization Frauds
"If an organization claims to help cancer patients and hires an entire staff to do it, it must be the real deal right? Not really. If the organization claims to send medication to patients, but only sends tissue paper, it’s a fraud. If the organization claims to drive patients to chemotherapy, but no such program exists, then the organization is a fraud. Like church frauds, charitable frauds receive a tax break for their “good work.” The important point is always do your research, no matter how legitimate they may sound or appear."
Bottom line......If an organization claims to be helping birds, but is using false opinions (for their financial gain) that promote bird slaughtering wind projects..... It is fraud.
