If I were the Saudi king, I would consider secretly funding environmentalist wacko groups in the US.

They've been doing it for a long time. There's no profit in the tree-hugging business, how else could the tree-hugging/anti-nuke/anti-frack lobby attain such disproportionate influence?

They fully funded the Fresh Prince of Bill Ayers, from college through the White Hut...

Saudi Prince Alwaleed bin Talal doesn’t have to worry - Obama can appoint him to run the FBI or Homeland Insecurity.... someone has to target those ‘oh so violent’ Tea Party members....

If you follow the money, that worked for a while.

Who do you think funds the anti-fracking whackos?

I'm serious. Gasland was funded by Venezuelan interests, and Promised Land was funded (at least in part) by a company wholly funded by the United Arab Emirates.

If I were the Saudi King I'd chill out in a Palace with my 200 concubines and not give a good god damn about anything. ;)

Considering the KGB provided seed money to at least one of the better known environmentalist groups back in the '70s with the express intent of hobbling Western Industry, they would not be the first to use our courts to injure our strength as a nation.

As a rule, things are a lot cleaner now--we haven't had any rivers catch on fire lately--so the better money would be spent bribing the EPA and associated flunkies, and buying 'studies' to provide 'justification' for insane regulation.

The money need not even be spent here in the US, if one considers the "Global Warming" panic and rhetoric which has so severely perfused conventional wisdom, media, and entertainment that it will take the next ice age before people realize it isn't happening.

What makes you think they aren't.

Foreign nations fund a lot of the left wing pressure groups.

E.g., Saddam Hussein's Iraq contributed major funds to A.N.S.W.E.R. and their anti-war operation.
