It’s like a game of whack-a-mole. One pops up, funding is exposed, so it hides and a new one suddenly appears.
Frack Free Colorado, Coloradans Against Fracking, Fracking Front Lines, North Metro Neighbors for Safe Energy. Hide and repeat.
It’s the same game over Question 301 in Broomfield, it’s funded by national groups, reports Simon Lomax.
Citizens for a Safe and Healthy Broomfield is registered to the same address as the Sierra Club’s regional office in Denver, Lomax discovered.
Broomfield Health and Safety First is a project of League of Oil & Gas Impacted Coloradans (LOGIC) that got the question on the ballot, is associated with Clean Water Action and the Clean Water Fund.
What’s not a secret is that oil and gas interests oppose Question 301, including Lomax himself, who reveals such in his own report.
The reason these groups keep hiding, is they want to fool people into thinking opposition against the energy industry is local.
But voters are not fools, and environmentalists should stop treating them as such.
