U.S. Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works Releases Minority Report:
The Chain of Environmental Command: How a Club of Billionaires and Their Foundations Control the Environmental Movement and Obama’s EPA
Washington, D.C. – Today, the U.S. Senate Committee on Environment & Public Works released a minority staff report, “The Chain of Environmental Command: How a Club of Billionaires and Their Foundations Control the Environmental Movement and Obama’s EPA.” The report examines the cozy relationship and collusion that exists between the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Environmental activists.
The Energy & Environment Legal Institute (E&E Legal) has demonstrated this same collusion for the past several years through its transparency work. For example, several FOIAs and lawsuits initiated by E&E Legal against EPA has produced hundreds of official documents affirming the uncomfortably close working relationship between the current EPA and activist left-wing environmental groups in their effort to make abundant energy resources, particularly coal, much more scarce in America.
The Energy & Environment Legal Institute (E&E Legal) is a 501(c)(3) organization engaged in strategic litigation, policy research, and public education on important energy and environmental issues. Primarily through its petition litigation and transparency practice areas, E&E Legal seeks to correct onerous federal and state policies that hinder the economy, increase the cost of energy, eliminate jobs, and do little or nothing to improve the environment.
