NRSP: Not Really Science People

BREAKING UPDATE!
NRSP exposed – controlled by energy industry lobbyists (click here)
 

 

The new public relations group calling itself the Natural Resources Stewardship Project is a classic example of an astroturf group - a surprisingly well-funded PR team that presents itself as a grassroots organization.

NRSP (think: Not Really Science People) sets this out as it's First Priority Project:
“Understanding Climate Change” A proactive grassroots campaign to counter the Kyoto Protocol and other greenhouse gas reduction schemes while promoting sensible climate change policy.

Think about that for a minute. A true grassroots campaign occurs when a bunch of people who share an interest rise up spontaneously to fight for a common interest. Which of your neighbours might be inclined to rise up spontaneously to “counter the Kyoto Protocol and other greenhouse gas reduction schemes”? Conscientious objectors in the war on climate change don't join astroturf groups.

Actually the people that operate and created that site are just as grassroots as you or me. This again is a perfect example of the left unwilling to except competition, whether it be in the business world, or scientific theory. Industry, business, and any individual for that matter has a right to donate to the causes they want to see promoted - just as anyone else does. It wouldn’t surprise me if oil companies helped fund the site because if carbon dioxide isn’t driving global warming, it would be beneficial to them if people heard that side of the story. They might be supported by funds from big oil, but at least they aren’t monopolized by the left-leaning media.

They come from the previous Friends of Science and related extremist-funded opinion sites.

Problem is scientists are too busy doing science. Hmmmm…. The science police, there’s an idea!

You present an interesting perspective on climate change and the NRSP. I hadn't really given this much consideration, but now that you've made me aware of it, I'll definitely be doing some research on this group before I join.

"According to Harris, the idea behind the project came from Timothy Egan, President of the High Park Group, a Toronto-based lobby organization. " The Natural Resources Stewadship Project is a Canadian non-profit organization that presents itself as undertaking "a proactive grassroots campaign to counter the Kyoto protocol and other greenhouse gas reduction scheme while promoting sensible climate change policy.

Thanks for sharing this BREAKING UPDATE!
