Sierra ~ Club Wielding Hypocrite

Sierra Club: Thy Name is Hypocrisy (natural gas for and against)

What’s the Sierra Club’s position on the development and use of natural gas from shale? Depends on whom you ask . . . within the actual organization.
By now, of course, we’re all well aware of the Sierra Club’s newly staked-out position in opposition to natural gas, notwithstanding the fact that the Club used to support it.  [Master Resource]
Hypocrisy is nothing new for the Sierra Club.
  Last year the Sierra club launched a campaign  “Wind Works” this six figure campaign was designed to push lawmakers to pass the Production Tax Credit . “Big Wind” subsidies for renewable energy.
  The Sierra Club’s support of big wind highlights their Philosophically flawed reasoning.

In 1995, the Sierra Club adopted a Philosophy of Service and Stewardship, To explore, enjoy and protect the wild places of the Earth; to practice and promote the responsible use of the Earth's ecosystems and resources; to educate and enlist humanity to protect and restore the quality of the natural and human environment; and to use all lawful means to carry out these objectives.

In that vein a Sierra Club official called electricity-producing windmills "the Cuisinart’s of the air" for their tendency to kill thousands of birds, including endangered species, annually.[MCFPP]

 The Sierra Club has clearly defined their position supporting the Endangered Species Act ~ "The Endangered Species Act is one of America's most effective tools for safeguarding our fish and wildlife heritage.

 In 2007,  the Sierra Club was asking its members for support to save The Endangered Species Act, at the same time, they were also lobbying on the side of the American Wind Energy Association to defeat legislation that would protect endangered birds and bats.  Even though thousands of birds, bats, eagles and other endangered species die every year from deadly collisions with wind turbines.    [HuLIQ]

Speaking of hypocrisy did you see M. Jollif's comment to the PSC. I had heard that also her son might be voting here and claiming to live here 30 days. I would like to know, though. Did his assessor get a letter from the democratic and CCFG chairman. We will find out.
