Yes, they are.

Petre: That's classic "greenwashing."

A simplistic piece from a Sun Myung Moon owned, unabashedly right wing newspaper, that gathers its information from the "National Center for Policy Analysis," which is a conservative, big business oriented "think tank" funded by

DaimlerChrysler Corporation Fund
El Paso Energy Foundation
ExxonMobil Foundation
Eli Lilly and Company Foundation
Lilly Endowment Inc.
Procter & Gamble Fund

...and others.

More, in their own words:

"The National Center for Policy Analysis is a nonprofit, nonpartisan public policy research institute that seeks innovative, private sector solutions to public policy problems. The NCPA works with scholars at colleges and universities and other think tanks in the United States and around the world. Its target audiences include policymakers, journalists, business and community leaders and the general public. Its mission is to develop and promote private alternatives to government regulation and control, solving problems by relying on the strengths of the competitive, entrepreneurial private sector."

I hope we won't be seeing more from this group quoted as credible information here.
