    ANTI-KEYSTONE HAS FUNDERS, TOO
    Campaign against Canadian Keystone XL pipeline driven by US foundation millions
    David Martosko, February 21, 2012 (Daily Caller)

    "...[D]uring a July 2008 meeting, the $789 million Rockefeller Brothers Fund proposed to coordinate and fund a dozen environmental and anti-corporate activist groups’ efforts to scuttle pipelines carrying tar sands oil from Canada to the United States...The most recent incarnation of that pipeline plan, the Keystone XL project, was the subject of intense public controversy until the Obama administration rejected it in January.

    "The 2008 meeting consisted of presentations from Rockefeller Brothers Fund program officer Michael Northrop, Corporate Ethics International Executive Director Michael Marx, Natural Resources Defense Council attorney Susan Casey-Lefkowitz and the director of a Canadian activist group called the Pembina Institute."


    click thru for the meeting slide presentations

    "Northrop’s presentation described the extraction of oil from Canada’s vast tar sands oil deposits as a threat to environmentalists’ efforts to curb global warming. He outlined a ”globally significant response” consisting of a 'network of leading US and Canadian NGOs' engaged in a 'coordinated campaign structure'...

    "The subject of U.S. interests raining money on environmental organizations north of the border is a front-burner issue in Canada."
