CORE's War on the Poor and the Environment
An organization called the Congress of Racial Equality (CORE) recently launched an anti-environmentalist pro-energy campaign called the 'War on the Poor."
CORE, along with two partnering groups, the High Impact Leadership Coalition and Americans for American Energy, announced recently that the campaigns goal is:
to publicly unmask more than 100 politicians and 50 environmental extremist groups that are waging an immoral 'war on the poor' by pushing policies that limit America’s ability to produce more America energy and drive energy prices skyward."
So who is CORE and the other organizations behind this campaign? There's lots of information out there on these groups and over the next few days DeSmogBlog will beat the bushes, conduct the research, pull it all together and report it all right here.
