The Institute for Energy Research (IER) has a comprehensive database detailing environmentalist groups nationwide and the millions (if not billions) of dollars they funnel to different causes, such as anti-fossil fuel campaigns. The Energy Editor of The Daily Caller reviewed IER’s information and here is some of what he has uncovered:
The Energy Foundation handed out $444 million in grants and the Sea Change Foundation doled out $373 million. The Energy Foundation got funding from liberal billionaire Tom Steyer’s charitable trust from 2009 to 2013, the group disclosed on its website.
