National Wildlife Federation is mapped on Muckety.

Description: an old-line hunting and fishing organization founded in 1936 that was gradually co-opted by environmentalist leaders beginning in the 1980s, alienating former members who departed, and recruiting a new social-change and ideologically oriented membership. In 2004, the group chose a new CEO who made global warming its top priority, with extreme prejudice against fossil fuels, particularly oil and gas.

Today the organization has a $94 million annual budget, mostly gained from foundation grants, and its top priority remains global warming. Its primary activities have involved programs and congressional pressure to end the use of fossil fuels through various stratagems, including the creation and fostering of Sportsmen for Responsible Oil and Gas Development (aka Sportsmen for Responsible Energy Development) as a ruse to shut down oil and gas production throughout the United States.

This changed emphasis has convinced a number of state wildlife affiliates that the organization is no longer a sportsmen’s group, but a money-driven instrument of various ideological foundations donating millions toward the elimination of fossil fuels in the belief it will stop global warming. Many sportsmen wondered about the $100,000 grant in 2006 from New York's Overbrook Foundation for "Improving the Environmental Performance and Reducing the Carbon Footprint of the North American Direct-Mail Catalog Industry" and what that has to do with wildlife. Such money-grubbing submission to big foundation social change agendas by the National Wildlife Federation shows clearly that the group's mission is no longer making wildlife available for hunters and anglers.

NWF president Larry J Schweiger is a board of directors member of Al Gore’s Alliance for Climate Protection, flagship of the “no more fossil fuels” global warming fundamentalists.

NWF kicked out ("disaffiliated) its Pennsylvania state organization for refusing to accept the dogma of global warming as a totally man-made force. Read the National Wildlife Federation's Letter of Disaffiliation here. Constituent groups with the Pennsylvania state organization became so outraged by the national organization's ideological shift that the largest state group withdrew prior to the disaffiliation.
