I received a media advisory from the League of Conservation Voters recently (for some reason, it was not available online). It said in part, “New Mexico’s Latino community will be represented at the People’s Climate March in New York City this coming Sunday, September 21st by a group of Latinos who are part of local New Mexico program supported by the League of Conservation Voters Education Fund and Conservation Voters New Mexico Education Fund.”
The release listed Eduardo Garcia and Yarida Estrada as heading to New York to attend. I’m just wondering whether our radical green friends will be bicycling or walking to New York. After all, these are the very same people who supported efforts in the EU to impose heavy new taxes on airline passengers in the supposed hopes of reducing carbon emissions and saving the planet.
And, lest you think that these environmental groups are the “little guys” against the Koch-funded Rio Grande Foundation juggernaut, you should check out how much they are charging for an upcoming event here in poverty-stricken New Mexico. There must be even more wealthy “limousine liberal” environmentalists in this state than I thought.
In a broader sense, according to the Center for Public Integrity, the League of Conservation voters is now one of the leading “dark-money” groups in the nation.
