NRDC spokesman Robert Redford has disconnected view of Gulf oil rig explosion and sports
"It was at a 2003 meeting of the NRDC board meeting at Sundance that actor and conservationist Robert Redford first devised this new strategy.
- "We have to go to sports," Redford said."
We all want clean air, clean water, and to preserve our environment. We don't need the new political system being promoted by MLB favorite and NRDC trustee Robert Redford, the rest of NRDC, and vast corporate interests.
- An NRDC trader says trillions of dollars will be needed in global warming transition,
- “There are trillions of dollars needed to make this transition, and companies need the banks,”
- says Stevenson, a former trader for London-based hedge fund firm Brevan Howard Asset Management LLP."
Behind the talk about clean air, children, and helpless animals are business profits and political turnover bigger than most of us could imagine. Baseball players and fans should not exploited to advance this movement.
- 6/22, Robert Redford said on CNN this week that problems such as the Gulf oil spill stem from Dick Cheney setting up the MMS, the oil oversight bureau.Reporters checked into personnel at MMS and as it happens not one involved in BP oversight was appointed by the Bush administration, most were decades long federal employees although one in question was promoted during the Bush years.
- MLB has given Robert Redford and NRDC special access to promote his views about the environment at least some of which are not accurate.
- MLB co-sponsored a Redford video played to fans in Fenway Park about his views on the environment (4/21/2008 NYDN article).
- Redford and NRDC ran a blaring video at Yankee Stadium during the 2009 playoffs according to a fan:
- The volume was turned on so loud that Redford's voice could be heard above the howling wind and freezing rain of a mid- October evening in New York City. "...
- "borne by people of color and others who face social and economic inequalities." They are about forcing the transfer of money from industrial nations (the bad guys) to unknown and unaccountable persons in the third world and/or their helpers in the endless "climate" industry (including groups like the WWF which displace masses of indigenous people and land).
- 4/21/08, NY Daily News: "A public service video, narrated by Redford and co-sponsored by MLB, will be shown."...
- In NRDC and Redford's view, clean air and water are only possible by submitting to the global climate industry, already infested with organized crime, and which rests on the false assumption that US citizens are climate criminals
- Redford spoke to the George Soros climate pressure group Ceres in April 2009
- "Wall Street realized there was money to be made in 'going green.'"
- Redford may know about Wall Street, but his recent CNN interview shows lack of command of other facts of life on planet earth. ****
- In fact, in its 35 year history, the NRDC has surpassed all other political action, citizens', and trade groups in "pro-environment" victories and accomplishments -- many of them
- through litigation."...***
