Ecoterrorism in Canada

Via GWPF, we learn that Canadian police are worried about violent extremists in the environmental movement:

The RCMP has labelled the “anti-petroleum” movement as a growing and violent threat to Canada’s security, raising fears among environmentalists that they face increased surveillance, and possibly worse, under the Harper government’s new terrorism legislation.

In highly charged language that reflects the government’s hostility toward environmental activists, an RCMP intelligence assessment warns that foreign-funded groups are bent on blocking oil sands expansion and pipeline construction, and that the extremists in the movement are willing to resort to violence.

There are clearly valid concerns over blanket surveillance the article is interesting, firstly because it represents more evidence that people in a position to know seem convinced about the links between environmentalists and foreign powers - presumably Russia - and secondly because nobody seems to be disputing that there are violent people operating within the environmental movement. The fact of ecoterrorism seems accepted by everyone (except the BBC perhaps).

Moscow gold again? Remember? All those vehement denials, accusations of 'Tory smears' etc etc and it turned out to be true after all, Jack Jones and all the rest of the workers champions were on Moscow's payroll after all. Wot a larf it would be if the global agitation movement was still being bankrolled by Russia after all.

I do not think David Cameron receives any foreign funding but I think he falls for more hogwash than any other politician I know (of).

The Russians (old Sov Union) had completely penetrated the UK security services and establishment by the 1930s. What makes anyone think they stopped?

They were quite happy to murder Georgi Markov on the streets of London in '78 in a way bound to attract attention and recently murdered Litvinenko in a way even more extraordinary, leaving trails of Polonium all over Europe.

They own the UK, lock, stock and barrel and have done for decades and don't even mention the EU, run by 'ex' communists.

Bish, believe it or not, but a lot of foreign funding to fight the oil sands is coming from the US, including the Rockefeller Foundation. The Mayor of Vancouver has had contributions from these same groups.

I am rather hoping that this is the beginning of the end of green lunacy, but it could be a very long journey with many ups & downs along the way! As many have said here before, it is only a matter of time before somebody gets seriously hurt! These crazys have already got aware with vandalism & damage to property in the name of saving Gaia. They'v e got away with linking sceptis to paedophile websites (Johnny Ball, David Bellamy) in an attempt to discredit them, & of course in may cases one only has to fling a little mud for it to stick. The next step is now physicalI violence & killing! If one is slightly dispassionate about it, one could say these useful idiots are well-intentioned. However, one could also argue that so was Hilter, he wanted the best for the German people, whatever that was. The same could be said for Lenin & Stalin, they were doing what they thought was best for everyone. Ditto Polpot, the list is endless really! I seem to recall our Beautiful LeaderTony saying, "I did what I thought was right!" over the Iraq War, so it is perhaps a lawyer's blanket excuse-me! I wonder if I can use that if I get a speeding ticket, or are illegally parked somewhere? No, perhaps not!

Here's detailed info on so-called "environmental" activist funding (from the USA) being painfully endured by Canada.
Apparently, the bulk of the money coming North is aimed at keeping Canada from exporting oil to countries other than the USA, hence at a deep discount from global pricing. The much-delayed Keystone XL pipeline is being blocked so that Warren Buffet can continue to profit from railway tank car transport of our oil - at least that's the way it appears to me.

"Greenpeace never takes money from foreign governments".

So, Greenpeace in Russia, can take money from the Russian Government, but not from the Canadian Government.

Greenpeace, like the Red Cross, can raise money in one country, to spend it in another, otherwise Greenpeace could not have damaged the Nazca Lines.

The Governments in most countries have ways of channeling money, so it can arrive without the appearance of a known Government pay check. The US referred to the process as being part of "plausible deniability".

Greenpeace denials are implausible.

Greenpeace certainty took money from foreign owned, unaccountable mega rich foundations...
European Climate Foundation, Climateworks network being one..

they used it to lobby against coal in the EU, at behest of a bunch of Americans running foundations with dead billionaires money, so that the EU would 'lead' the way.. in ditching coal - they even boast about it in the ECF annual reports. (see David Rose 'Green blob' story a while back.)

the ECF gave other 40 grants to various groups (FoE, etc) to lobby hard against coal in the EU and the UK, they won in the UK, the Kingsnorth anti coal campaign killed new coal in the UK

same trick being applied in India? Climate Works, Tides Foundation, Hewlett, Oak, Packard, etc giving money to Greenpeace to lobby on energy policy.

The obvious suspects are the Russian and Chinese. China has clearly been "playing the game" for years. I would strongly suspect that if anyone enquired, the Chinese delegate at the BBC 28gate meeting was probably there at the behest of the Chinese government. I'm sure the Chinese have been splashing out with money to academics who pushed global warming baloney and I would strongly suspect that the NGOs and these anonymous green benefactors who fund all these legal actions are also foreign funded.

And we all know the Russians were funding ... which one was it (not that it matters as they probably all get Russian funding).

As for motivation:
Chinese = destroy western manufacturing so it all moves to China (so successful that we now can't afford to buy Chinese goods which serves them right)

Russian= force us to get rid of fossil fuels and again manufacturing and rely on them.

It would be terrible for the United Nations IPCC, if it was linked to organised criminal activity, acts of terrorism, money laundering etc. It might warrant further investigation, and I am sure they would want to distance themselves, for what is left of their integrity.

Greenpeace have always claimed that they don't take money from governments (any governments).

Of course, this is utterly disingenuous. It is child's play for money to be funnelled to people and organisations without a direct link between the funds and a government. It's been a staple of espionage since Jesus played fullback for Jerusalem.

In the US, there are agglomeration funds and trusts which collect and collate funds from various sources and then distribute them to NGOs. The original sources of the money are almost impossible to track down - for civilians, at least.

But unless intelligence agencies are fast asleep, one assumes that they are monitoring these flows of funds, at least in their own jurisdictions.

Why is the UK coal phaseout so important?
Because the world has a massive coal problem, and leadsership is needed.

so the intent, is for the EU/UK to show leadership, at the whims of organisations funded from abroad (USA largely) so that we may lead the USA to follow. despite EU?UK having much lower emissions than the USA?

so much for what the EU/UK public think about it?

Well Barry, you have just revealed the tip of the iceberg. I am not aware of anyone pulling it all together, but it would be a huge task and I'm guessing that unlike if you were researching the effects of CAGW on an obscure Icelandic worm, funding is not available. :)

The larger issue, IMO, is that some NGOs are now parallel governments, and certainly more powerful than the governments of small countries. But, very little systematic work has been done on them.

Who are they? Who pays the bills? What are their links with other organisations? Are (should I say, to what extent are) unwitting taxpayers funding them? And so on.

I'm not talking conspiracy theories here. This is mainstream stuff. When, as Donna Laframboise documented, NGOs are allowed into forums where decisions are made, and the media and public are excluded, we need to know more.

The European Climate Foundation is the regional (EU) organisation of the Climate Works network (funded, by Oak, Hewlett, Packard and other foundations) they gave at least 40 grants to organisations - Greenpeace, WWF, etc to lobby, take action, support protestors - Client Earth (lawyers) to stop coal in the UK (Kingsnorth was the focus), and throughout Euroope..

I imagine, ClimateWorks with it's billionaire funds (USA) 'Big Green' backers fund similar activities in Asia , China and India..

here are the grants (no amounts I'm afraid) from a few years back (they won, on no new coal in UK)

I’ve went through the ECF recent grants section on wayback machine (in 2010) and extracted all the grants that mention coal - over 40 (in a redesign, the ECF removed it's grants database.)

The ECF president states (Pre COP15) how their campaign stopped Kingsnorth and unabated coal in the UK, and how it can be repeated, Ed Milliband and behind the scenes lobbying of the conservative party get a mention....

FUNDING STRATEGICALLY in the field of CLIMATE CHANGE

“A collaborative effort was launched to convince the UK
not to build the planned new facility at Kingsnorth. “

“This became a complex, multifaceted effort over a year and
a half, with grass-roots mobilisation campaigns [my note - all those ECF grants!]
behind the scenes lobbying with the Conservative Party to
convince them to take the lead on the issue”

“All of this work, backed by substantial philanthropic
investment, resulted in UK Climate Change Secretary
Ed Miliband announcing in April that no new unabated
coal-fired power plants would be built”

“With this policy, the UK is setting a leadership example
and ‘walking the talk’ on emissions reduction, recognising
that the nation would not be able to live up to its
climate change commitments if new unabated coal
plants were built.”

“This is an example of a policy that can be replicated, increasing its impact.”

"This is interesting, because Greenpeace always said they never took money from foreign governments."

It won't be foreign governments, more likely it will be great big multinationals.

They pretty well run much of the world now anyway, and their 'ever-expanding business model' means they must, in all logical analysis, end up running the rest of it. I'd guess that won't happen as the majority wake up to the rort, but then again, with pretty unlimited political donations (both official and unofficial) in much of the west, they may control government tightly enough to protect themselves for quite some time.
