Follow the (Anti-Coal) Money: Sierra Club Version

Sierra Club.  Kinda sounds neat-o, mountains, big trees, sunset vistas....

Well, not really.

A Time magazine blogger reported Thursday that the Sierra Club, America’s oldest and most august environmental organization, accepted millions of dollars in donations from one of the nation’s biggest natural gas-drilling companies for a program lambasting coal-fired power plants as environmental evildoers.

The total take for John Muir’s conservation group? A whopping $26 million over four years from Chesapeake Energy and its subsidiaries, mostly through Chesapeake CEO Aubrey McClendon.

Not a bad haul for a propaganda dump.

Wow, so the Sierra Club prostituted itself. Just like "real" conservatives who attack Romney continually...yet will vote for him if he is the nominee. So much for scruples!

No, it's more like Leftist whores who troll on Conservative blogs as "Anonymous". No scruples, all is equal, everything goes.

And BTW, I won't vote for Romney because Any But Bush got us Obama
