12 Anti-Environmental Groups with Green Names


It's called waving a "false flag," using a green-sounding name on an anti-environmental organization. Most of these groups do (or did, many have fleeting existences) exactly the opposite of what their name implies.

If it's the "Land Conservation Coalition," it may have been born in the back room of a Washington, D.C. lobbying shop, and it doesn't actually have any members. Its mission is probably not to protect federal lands, but graze cattle and extract resources from them, with a little destructive off-roading on the side.
