The Corrupted Nature Conservancy And Its Ecosia Search Engine

Nature Conservancy, once a network of wilderness sanctuaries,
was taken over with its worldwide properties by Henry Paulson, former CEO of Goldman Sachs and G W Bush Secretary of the Treasury who arranged bank bailouts. He turned the forest shrines into mixed use cattle ranches. Now NC is intertwined with the Ecosia search engine and is able to datamine the computers of those doing searches.
Nature Conservancy: Cowkillers, Deforesters, Drillers

A coup d'etat at Nature Conservancy has helped environment-raping big business execs take over NC's millions of acres of land holdings, once wilderness sanctuaries. Paulson and others turned these shrines into mixed use cattle ranches. If one goes to the search engine they support,
Ecosia org, the banner shows cows roaming among widely spaced trees.

Nature Conservancy was once a network of wilderness shrines supported by vegetarians Paul Newman and JoAnne Woodward and many other environmentalists. But when Henry Paulson, centimillonaire, former CEO of Goldman Sachs and former Secretary of the Treasury (2006 to 2008, nominated by G W Bush) maneuvered into its presidency, he turned many of their land holdings into mixed use cattle slaughter operations and greased the way for oildrilling on NC held lands by BP etc. On June 25th, CBS helped promote Nature Conservancy's bison slaughter in Franklin Grove, Illinois, publicizing their 'bringing bison back' but failing to mention that it was for mammal slaughter purposes.

James Rogers is vice chair of NC and retired CEO of Duke Energy, along with Smithfield the Carolinas' biggest polluter. His corporation was fined 102 million dollars for their environmental destruction, as Duke illegally dumped coal ash with its host of toxins into rivers. *1

Muneer Satter sits on NC's board. He is a retired partner of Goldman Sachs, a coroporation heavily invested in environment destroying, animal murdering and war profiteering corporations. *2

Nature Conservancy portrays its operation as environmental though it is part of the prime cause of global warming: mammal slaughter. A UN environmental panel was coawarded the Nobel Prize with Al Gore for publicizing that mammal slaughter causes more global heating than cars.

From santa cruz dot indymedia dot org in 2005
"Thomas Stroock was G H W Bush's ambassador to Guatemala 1989-92, and supervised CIA death squad and torture operations.
This top secret CIA facility was run by Randy Capister, aka "Alexandro", working under Stroock out of the US Embassy in Guatemala City. Today Stroock is a professor at University of Wyoming, runs his own oil drilling company, and sits on the Board of Trustees of the Nature Conservancy"

Frank E Loy, board member of NC, was head of the Penn Central Corporation and in other capacities supervised oil pipelines.

NC has thousands of properties around the world. In Pennsylvania alone, Nature Conservancy has 25 holdings.



Nature Conservancy is now intertwined with an environmental search engine Ecosia org

which is in a position to datamine all searched and computers of environmental activists who use its service.
