WikiLeaks releases have now touched upon one of our favorite subjects, the role of the Rockefeller family in fighting fracking and killing Upstate New York.
WikiLeaks has been in the news a great deal lately. The releases have now touched upon fracking at least twice in major ways. The first, which has gotten a lot of attention, was when Hillary Clinton, in a private speech, apparently said this:
“We were up against Russia pushing oligarchs and others to buy media. We were even up against phony environmental groups, and I’m a big environmentalist, but these were funded by the Russians to stand against any effort, ‘Oh that pipeline, that fracking, that whatever will be a problem for you,’ and a lot of the money supporting that message was coming from Russia.”
That was interesting enough, but another significant fracking mention, which has gotten no press, was in the new John Podesta email releases. It was a letter from Lucy Rockefeller Waletzky, sister of Larry Rockefeller and one of several family members trying to make a wilderness of Upstate New York. The letter reached Podesta, Clinton campaign chairman, through the efforts of the NRDC gang’s henchman, John Adams (NRDC founder, OSI founder, Riverkeeper board member, father of the Catskill Mountainkeeper and Joe Martens’ boss). Ann Roach, an NRDC staffer involved in the forwarding of the letter also said to give Podesta “our love,” which suggests the sort of cronyism with which the NRDC gang operates.
