1. Sierra Club Promotes Urban Sprawl, Longer Commutes

    You’d think that the Sierra Club and San Francisco would fit together like two peas in a pod, but the notorious “green” group’s local chapter finds itself fighting against the city on a regular basis. In a prime example of nimbyism (“not in my backyard”), Forbes notes the group often fights against increased density in […]

  2. Environmental Groups Linked to Russian Oil Tycoons

    Our new video “From Russia With Love?” shows that radical environmental groups such as the Sierra Club and League of Conservation Voters might be receiving millions of dollars from Russian oil tycoons—who have a serious self-interest in slowing American energy production. The video is based on a recently updated report of the same name, which found that Russian oil and gas executives funneled […]

  3. BGR Report: From Russia With Love?

    Today, Big Green Radicals released a report detailing potential connections between Russian oil interests and the funding of American environmental organizations through a shady Bermuda law firm.

  4. Meet the Sierra Club, Your $6,000-a-Trip Travel Agency (Don’t Mind the Carbon Emissions)

    The Sierra Club, the nation’s self-anointed environmental finger-waggers, hates it when you take a plane. “[E]ach flight you take does have an impact,” the Club notes. But don’t worry—it’s A-OK to take planes as long as you’re a part of the Sierra Club Outings program. Over the next year the Sierra Club is offering over […]

  5. Seizing Farmland, the Sierra Club Way

    The Illinois Commerce Commission recently voted to allow Clean Line Energy Partners to move forward with Illinois’ first merchant-owned electric transmission line. The Rock Island Clean Line project would transmit energy produced from the future development of wind energy projects in Iowa to Illinois through a 500-mile corridor of power lines strung atop 150-foot towers. […]

  6. Greenpeace’s Anti-Science Crusade Claims Scalp

    Big Green groups love to claim that the “science is settled” when it comes to climate change as a way to marginalize (and silence) their opponents. But if these activists are so concerned about the scientific consensus, why do they attack genetically improved crops? These crops, which have been on the market for decades, have […]

  7. Sierra Club’s “Pick a Plug-In” Tool Backfires

    The Sierra Club is out with a new web tool to get more people to buy electric vehicles (EVs). The only problem: after using the “Pick a Plug-In” tool, it quickly becomes apparent that for many Americans, seemingly no electric vehicles meet their needs. To use the tool, individuals are asked to answer several questions […]

  8. Big Green Groups Put Big Chill on Dissent

    Natural Resources Defense Council board member Robert F. Kennedy, Jr. just became the latest high-profile activist to lament that there are no laws under which to prosecute and jail individuals who disagree with his views on environmental policy. He called for his critics to be sent to “the Hague with all other war criminals.” This has become […]

  9. Sierra Club Ordered to Pay $6.4 Million for “Frivolous” Lawsuit

    The Sierra Club’s strategy of incessant lawsuits to advance its agenda is not only dangerous from a flawed policy agenda, it’s can also be dangerous to their bank account and reputation. It risks backlash from an American public increasingly fed up with dubious lawsuits that enrich trial lawyers and clog up the legal system. This […]

  10. Sierra Club Partners with Solar Company for Kickbacks

    In addition to peddling a radical environmental agenda, the Sierra Club also lobbies for subsidies and tax incentives for solar energy; now it’s looking to cash in on the resulting artificial demand. It is partnering with the solar panel company Sungevity, founded by a former Greenpeace activist, to receive a $750 kickback every time a Club member purchases Sungevity’s […]
