On the Greenpeace Challenge

The ever-excitable DeSmogBlog crew continues to live up to its reputation for hyperbole with a post about The National Center for Public Policy Research’s challenge to Greenpeace. We called upon Greenpeace to list all its $50,000 donors in 2006. If it does, we will.

DeSmogBlog’s Kevin Grandia claimed in the post that Greenpeace annual reports contain “full disclosure” of Greenpeace donors.

Even if the reports Kevin references did contain a complete list of all the donors to Greenpeace’s many projects, which it does not appear to do, Mr. Grandia’s acceptance of the repeated use of the word “anonymous” on the donor list in place of proper names sets a new low standard for the word “disclosure.”

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.
