There is significant evidence that our country’s enemies (esp. Russia and China)
are purposefully subverting our energy sector in a variety of ways. Of course they are
being clandestine about this, in hopes that few citizens will notice. One of their most
effective tactics is for them to support US organizations whose energy agenda is
synonymous with theirs.
For example, carefully consider these key energy questions. Who is it that wants:
1) US nuclear energy facilities to close down?
2) US fossil fuel reserves to stay in the ground (onshore and offshore)?
3) the costs of fossil fuels to go up (e.g. with a carbon tax)?
4) a high percentage of the US electric grid to be based on unreliable sources?
5) the US to waste trillions of dollars on unreliable electricity?
6) our national security weakened by wind energy interference with our military?
If you answered: “the Sierra Club and their allies,” you’d be right. However the correct
answer is also our communist opponents: Russia and China.
Mooney cited and quoted (among others) retired CIA officer Kenneth L. Stiles, who analyzed the “money trail” between certain U.S. environmental interests and Russian energy interests. Stiles said these environmental groups “are, without a doubt, agents of influence to Moscow through [a] networking system of shell companies and foundations.”..................But what makes the current situation more nefarious is the possibility — if Mooney’s suspicions are indeed accurate — of Russian manipulation of domestic environmental groups inside the United States, and their willful cooperation. .....................Well, the Republican Congress, to its credit, isn’t ignoring the question. On March 1, the House Science, Space, and Technology Committee released a report titled, “Russian Attempts to Influence U.S. Domestic Energy Markets by Exploiting Social Media.” The media response? Crickets.
