The author describes an environmental industry that has grown by leaps and bounds since the 1980s. Although their stated goals have remained the same, the nature of the groups has changed radically as they borrowed techniques from non-profit organizations in other fields and raised huge sums of money, much from major foundations such as the Ford Foundation, the Heinz Endowments, the Rockefeller Brothers Fund, and other entities known for supporting anti-capitalist goals.
Many of the organizations boast membership statistics that dishonestly include visitors to their websites and attendees to their meetings to claim extensive and widespread support for their activities, while having few actual, dues-paying members. Large organizations often spawn new groups that are portrayed as concerned citizens promoting an alleged grassroots issue of regional concern, such as "Friends of the Canyon," to give an image of neighborhood conservation groups valiantly fighting large, evil corporations.
Thought these are the National and possibly the International(s) their very names show their hypocrisy. I believe our Goal should be to focus on Maine's Hypocratic entities and assist other states afflicted with Wind Pox and Solar Pox by encouraging them to also identify those Non-Profits that work against the People's interests by destroying Communities by virtue of what once was a peaceful character and the nature of their lands.
