==Where do they get the money from?
The most obvious is donations. Save the whales, save the trees, save the water, save the three toed toadies... It is a billion dollar industry. The not so under the table blackmail, aka "jackson outrage for sale" is far too present. Many cases of "do this for us (give us this land, make this park, pass this law) and we will drop the protest" is in evidence. Look into how land wealthy the Sierra Club is.
If they were held accountable for the damages they cause directly with lawsuits they do not carry through, clear harassment cases, they would be bankrupt in no time and would have to find a different way.
I personally have no problem with a suit they carry through to the end, it is all the launch and leave suits that are using the court delay time to obstruct instead of debate the issues. To use the stays as a targeted destruction of an environmental report is not the intention or meaning of the right to sue, and is in fact a clear indication of the hypocrisy of the left in its own distain of the environmental reports forced on business at their hands.
Accountability is what they demand of others, and avoid at all costs on themselves.

I went to their website. They claim to have 700,000 members and donations are not tax deductible. I still suspect there may be government study grants somewhere in the largess.
