Simply eliminating all government funding of these groups would take them down a few notches.
And a loser-pays legal system would swiftly drain these groups through paying the other side’s legal fees whenever one of their stinking lawsuits flames out.

Definitely to both. Having fought with them over land use issues in the past, I quickly discovered that it’s all about power and money with these groups. They exist only because they managed to get into a position of power - through money donated by the ‘guilt ridden’ libs. Once that money bought them a level of power in the Governmental sense, they used that power to force the govt. to give them money. It’s now a perpetual spending machine that does not need to answer to the guilty membership or anyone else.
Everyone is so up in arms over the budget. (Everyone should) spend some time looking into how much one governmental department ‘charges’ the other to comply with Sierra Club/EPA mandates. We are talking in the 10s of BILLIONS every year. And that’s just taxpayer-paid government spending, not the damage it does financially to the private sector! Look up things like the BLM charging the Border Patrol millions of dollars annually to ‘mitigate the environmental damage’ of patrolling the border to get an idea of what I mean. That’s ONE example out of THOUSANDS that do the same thing. Costs rise VERY quickly.
That’s tens of BILLIONS the govt charges itself that YOU have to pay for and NONE of it is needed for anything other than to keep the spending machine going and keeping the Eco groups in power.
I know there are so many things that are NEEDING to be done and that this is one issue among thousands that NEED our attention. But that’s how Govt keeps this fiasco going...there is simply so much crap going on the average person gust says to hell with it...nothing can be done. That’s what they count on.
All we need to get the ball rolling is one elected rep UNAFRAID to publicly push the issue and make people understand that all their ‘bennies’ could be saved if we just gutted the eco machine in govt.
Between those ‘bennies’ and the endangered ‘Spotted Snarfblat Chub’ I can easily guess which the public would vote to ‘save’.
Then we can fix the ‘bennies’ issue.
