Brussels gives Environmentalists €100million to support their Climate Programme

Climate week

The EU gives away great chunks of money every year to support it’s Climate Agenda. Since 1997 the total amount of our cash is a mind boggling €100 million. What is more concerning is that sitting at the top of the list is WWF at €10,398,787 and FoE at €7,056,180. That these two organisations are political activists far removed from their original remit suggests that it is time Brussels is held to account. UK recipients, some of whom operate globally, only account for some 5% of disbursements. The major recipient at just under €12 million is the European Environment Bureau, the Federation of Environment Citizens Organisations, which includes such members as the RSPB, FoE, the Green Alliance and ClientEarth, an organisation of Activist Environment Lawyers here in the UK. A trawl through their web site raises some interesting issues . The organisation would seem to be essentially a lobbying organisation for its member organisations. So one might ask why it needs EU funding? A brief resume of the main recipients of the Euro enviro funds is below:

Slightly mad. Always believes a cup is half full so continues to tilt at Wind Turbines and the politicians that seem to believe it is their god given right to ruin Scotland for a pot of fool's gold.
