Jumping off from Gov. Mills reference to her 20 buddy governors on their hunt for a green new deal:
Climate change is ‘hammering’ our state, Janet Mills says
A new report released by Environment America outlines ways that U.S. governors can immediately address climate change and protect the environment. Here is Gov. Janet Mills' response.
Climate change is a priority issue. Our Office of Policy Innovation and the Future is preparing a climate agenda which I will announce in the coming weeks.
Environment America Research and Policy Center
Environment America Research & Policy Center is a 501(c)(3) organization. We are dedicated to protecting our air, water and open spaces. We investigate problems, craft solutions, educate the public and decision-makers, and help the public make their voices heard in local, state and national debates over the quality of our environment and our lives.
More about us.
Our research and public education work are made possible by tax-deductible contributions from generous citizens and foundations.
More ways to give.
100% Renewable Energy
We should be able to power our lives without polluting our environment. We have the ability to produce and consume energy and still enjoy healthy communities — and give our children and their children a livable future. That’s why we’re calling on cities, universities, businesses, and our state governments to commit to 100% renewable energy.
According to their 2015 filing of IRS 990 ;
Environment America's largest contractor expenditure was to the Center for Public Interest Research at $327,604.
According to its website, the Center for Public Interest Research:
The Center for Public Interest Research conducts research, organizing, community service, and public education around critical public interest issues. It also assists partner 501(c)(3) organizations and projects by hosting joint projects and programs, sponsoring new public interest projects, and providing training and technical support in areas such as civic engagement, citizen and student organizing, program development and packaging, internet and social media organizing, grantseeking, membership development, financial management, and legal assistance.
In other words neither of these two entities are concerned with science, just with training activists to carry out their goals. And Governor MIlls refers to a "new report' issued by Environment America as though it was a scientific basis for her grand plan to further ruin our State for our own good. Can someone follow back from the Center for Public Interest Research and connect more of the dots?
