The problem is that this cat is already drowning in government funding.
I was reading James Delingpole’s blog in the Torygraph when one supporter of the AGW scam mentioned certain reading. It was a so called environmental charity that I’d never heard of before
Britain's major centre for environmental inspiration and courses.
Of course you get the mindless newspeak confronting you:
CAT is concerned with the search for globally sustainable, whole and ecologically sound technologies and ways of life.
Within this search the role of CAT is to explore and demonstrate a wide range of alternatives, communicating to other people the options for them to achieve positive change in their own lives.
This communication involves:
- Inspiring - instilling the desire to change by practical example
- Informing - feeding the desire to change by providing the most appropriate information
- Enabling - providing effective and continuing support to put the change into practice.
CAT has a holistic approach to its work, integrating ideas and practice relating to land use, shelter, energy conservation and use, diet and health, waste management and recycling.
Through its resident community and work organisation, CAT is also committed to the implementation of co-operative principles and best achievable environmental practices.
As far as I’m concerned this is another fake charity trying to “nudge” us back to an agrarian society.
Of course these people will need to be funded and being of an enquiring mind I just sort of wandered around their site until I found this:
How is CAT funded ?
CAT receives almost no grant or government funding for its ongoing activities. It has received significant grants towards its new building, the Wales Institute for Sustainable Education, and for other projects. This capital funding is shown in the year end accounts of CAT Charity Limited, in addition to operating income.
But dig deeper and you find that they are somewhat economical with the truth in that statement.
This little part of a table in their accounts for 2009 exposes their little scam.
That adds up to £1,617,256 out of their total funding of £2,124,398. Hardly what they state above in their funding statement?
This is not a charity, it’s a semi government funded Quango. I don’t object to charities, but if they can’t subsist on private charity, then they shouldn’t exist.
I also dug up that before 2006 there were only four categories of charity enshrined in law.
- the relief of poverty,
- the advancement of education,
- the advancement of religion, and
- other purposes considered beneficial to the community.
Bugger me, but how that has expanded. There are now 13. and guess what comes creeping in at number 9.
the advancement of environmental protection or improvement
How many are there of those so called charities that are only existing, by being fed from my hard one income and paid from my tax?
There is a need for a small department to be set up to strip these fake charities of their funding.
I’ll do the job for a small fee. (With bonuses of course)
