Some of the biggest “Green” environmental organizations in the world engage in blatant deception and propaganda to fill their coffers, leaving destruction and ruined lives in their wake, according to Icelandic investigative journalist Magnus Gudmundsson (pictured). In an exclusive interview with The New American at the United Nations Rio+20 Conference on Sustainable Development last month, he also wondered whether the latest UN “sustainability” craze was simply more of the same fraud.
In over 20 years of tracking non-governmental organizations’ (NGOs) environmental campaigns, Gudmundsson has documented a vast array of deliberate lies concocted by groups such as Greenpeace and other major players. He has also been one of the only journalists in the world to really cover the effects of the deception on the affected communities — especially in the Arctic.
"I started investigating the actions of Greenpeace and similar groups in the mid '80s, and the more I investigated, the more disturbed I became, because what I found was quite disturbing," Gudmundsson told TNA. The list of atrocities was long, too.
"The worst abuses I have seen by these groups are fabrications — falsifications — of animal torture,” he continued. “I have videos showing the ugliest animal torture you can imagine, perpetrated by environmental groups claiming that these are hunters, these are fisherman, these are bad guys. They are using those videos to promote their cause — mainly to collect money — in order to stop these bad guys from doing what they’re doing, which they’ve never done."
