India Targets Prince Charles’ Green Adviser
In War On Greenpeace
 
India’s intelligence agency has targeted an adviser to Prince Charles and British activists in a campaign against Greenpeace and other foreign groups it claims are a threat to its economy. The Indian government last week banned direct foreign funding of local campaign groups, after a report by its Intelligence Bureau warned that organisations funded by Greenpeace and other international institutions were growing throughout the country and “spawning” mass movements which now pose a “significant threat to national economic security.” Much of their work, it said, is funded by the US-based Centre for Media and Democracy, which the report described as a Democratic Party-oriented group supported by liberals like George Soros and “multiple far-left foundations”. --Dean Nelson, The Daily Telegraph, 22 June 2014

New Report: Alarm Over Climate Turns People Off EU

Climate Push Threatens Energy Security, Poland Warns

Alarmist claims about the impact of global warming are contributing to a loss of trust in climate scientists, an inquiry has found. Apocalyptic language has been used about greenhouse gas emissions as “a deliberate strategy by some to engage public interest”. However, trying to make people reduce emissions by frightening them has “harmful consequences” because they often respond suspiciously or decide the issue is “too scary to think about”. The inquiry concludes: “Alarmist messages that fail to materialise contribute to the loss of trust in the science community.” --Ben Webster, The Times, 24 June 2014
