Wait, What Does She Have Against Hulk Hogan?

Found via Kathy Shaidle (who supplies the bold text), center-left Canadian journalist Donna Laframboise on the WWF:

At its heart, the Himalayan glacier scandal that has recently shaken the United Nations‘ Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) involves a document created by the WWF.

The WWF is an activist organization. Much of its funding comes from public donations. The more successful the WWF is at persuading the public that there’s a crisis, the more likely people are to give it money. (In North America, WWF stands for World Wildlife Fund. Elsewhere, it stands for World Wide Fund for Nature.)

Many of those associated with the WWF are lovely human beings. But that doesn’t change the fact that the WWF is not a neutral, disinterested party. It has an agenda, an ax to grind, a definite point-of-view. Rather than being a scientific organization, it is a political one. In the UK, the media aptly calls the WWF a “pressure-group.”

Really? I mean, I can’t see that at all.
