The real environmentalists are landowners, farmers, scientists, and outdoorsmen. The people from the Sierra Club and other left-wing groups just want to suck our tax dollars dry and force other people to live in conditions that cannot sustain a comfortable lifestyle.
I served on the executive committee for my local Sierra Club chapter. I had hoped to induce some change. I lasted about 2 months before I resigned. The Sierra Club is elitism/liberalism at its best-- "the general public is too ignorant to make smart-sustainable choices, we (the Sierra Club) need to push them in the right direction."-- paraphrased quote from one of the board meetings i attended.
