Number of Tax-Subsidized Enviro Groups Doubled in 1990s — to 4,000

There is a worthy letter to the editor by Paul Taylor in today’s Wall Street Journal. A brief excerpt:

“…as a percent of GDP we spend as much on environmental protections as we spend on national defense and homeland security combined. Taxpayer-subsidized green non-profit groups grew from 2,000 to 4,000 during the 1990s. These eco-non-profits have become skilled at gaming the regulatory system for political advantage in the guise of politically correct progressive public service.”

The National Center for Public Policy Research is a communications and research foundation supportive of a strong national defense and dedicated to providing free market solutions to today’s public policy problems. We believe that the principles of a free market, individual liberty and personal responsibility provide the greatest hope for meeting the challenges facing America in the 21st century.
