Conservation groups committing charity fraud

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
crime
Written By:

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.

The Sierra Club and their foundation is a huge powerful lobbying group. 

TOTAL IN 2016
Dollars donated to support advocacy efforts
71,884,500
Number of volunteers
5,059
Number of audience members willing to take action on behalf of a specific issue
730,000
They are tax-exempt yet have a massive political action, err. education network reaching from Pacific to Atlantic in every state and many towns. They pay no taxes, yet in 2018 made $1,875, 537 in grants to charitable organizations.  The total contributions available is $5,555,475. 
The Sierra Club Foundation showed assets in 2018 of $173,105,225, compared to 158,248,704.
$77,436,260 of the revenue came with donor restrictions, for a total revenue, adjusted, of $97,004,098.  Slightly over $6.8 million is spent on  fundraising services for a total of $9,388,357 in Fundraising support services.
The Sierra Club spends the money raised by the Foundation.
Lot's of forms, but the summary for 2018 revealed a $15,000 contribution to the Democratic Legislative Campaign Committee in Washington, D.C., and $50,000 to the COLORADO FOR ALL bus tour sponsored by the Colorado Democratic Party.  
So obviously they are 'married' to the Democrat's party, question is how do they directly influence Maine democrats?  What better way to lobby legislators than a bus ride? 
  

Hannah Pingree on the Maine expedited wind law

Hannah Pingree - Director of Maine's Office of Innovation and the Future

"Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine."

Maine Center For Public Interest Reporting – Three Part Series: A CRITICAL LOOK AT MAINE’S WIND ACT

******** IF LINKS BELOW DON'T WORK, GOOGLE THEM*********

(excerpts) From Part 1 – On Maine’s Wind Law “Once the committee passed the wind energy bill on to the full House and Senate, lawmakers there didn’t even debate it. They passed it unanimously and with no discussion. House Majority Leader Hannah Pingree, a Democrat from North Haven, says legislators probably didn’t know how many turbines would be constructed in Maine if the law’s goals were met." . – Maine Center for Public Interest Reporting, August 2010 https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-power-bandwagon-hits-bumps-in-the-road-3/From Part 2 – On Wind and Oil Yet using wind energy doesn’t lower dependence on imported foreign oil. That’s because the majority of imported oil in Maine is used for heating and transportation. And switching our dependence from foreign oil to Maine-produced electricity isn’t likely to happen very soon, says Bartlett. “Right now, people can’t switch to electric cars and heating – if they did, we’d be in trouble.” So was one of the fundamental premises of the task force false, or at least misleading?" https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/wind-swept-task-force-set-the-rules/From Part 3 – On Wind-Required New Transmission Lines Finally, the building of enormous, high-voltage transmission lines that the regional electricity system operator says are required to move substantial amounts of wind power to markets south of Maine was never even discussed by the task force – an omission that Mills said will come to haunt the state.“If you try to put 2,500 or 3,000 megawatts in northern or eastern Maine – oh, my god, try to build the transmission!” said Mills. “It’s not just the towers, it’s the lines – that’s when I begin to think that the goal is a little farfetched.” https://www.pinetreewatchdog.org/flaws-in-bill-like-skating-with-dull-skates/
