SC Eco-Radical’s Hubby Is Getting Paid, Too

By FITSNEWS  ||  We posted a few items recently about Ann Timberlake – the increasingly irascible leader of the Conservation Voters of South Carolina (CVSC).  Timberlake, of course, is the eco-radical who has dominated the Palmetto State’s “green movement” for years – in the process making big bank for her part-time effort.

Well guess what …

It appears as though Timberlake’s husband is also making plenty of “green” from the green movement.

According to documents obtained by FITS, Benjamin Gregg – the executive director of the S.C. Wildlife Federation – is pulling down $73,461 a year for his work with the organization.

Unlike his wife, though, Gregg at least reports working a full forty-hour week for his pay day.

Sources at the S.C. State House tell FITS that Timberlake – who lawmakers tell us has developed an increasingly short temper (and thin skin) in recent years – bristled at our suggestion that her influence over the environmental movement is on the wane.

Apparently she thinks we are acting out of self-interest related to an upcoming local election …

Actually, our ire stems from an election from six years ago in which Timberlake’s group chose to endorse a powerful incumbent with a terrible environmental record over a credible challenger with an exemplary record of balancing environmental stewardship with market principles and private property rights.

We haven’t forgotten that race … or the many other instances in which Timberlake has put the interests of her personal power ahead of the movement she purports to lead.

We would also advise Timberlake to buckle her chin strap.

We’re just getting warmed up …

The parasitic way of life is alluring, so it makes sense when you see entire families of non-productive people embrace a model by which they live off the productivity of others.

I still contend that if there was a way to trace the origins of the “contributions” to the green movement you would find that most of their money comes from our enemies in various forms. Whether it is foreign oil or other entities it seems that each and every time progress is addressed they try to put every stumbling block in it’s way possible. Can you imagine trying to build the interstate highway system today with all the “regulatory compliance” that would be required ? Who benefits from the closing of all the coal fired power plants due to emissions regulation ? Just recently we have become the leader in natural gas but the greens have been after coal for a long time. The last round of regulations from the Employment Prevention Administration have affected diesel engines, making them far more costly to buy and operate than ever, with very little improvement in emissions. It just makes them cost more. After all they get their food at the grocery store.

The dude’s an executive director and makes 5 figures? That was actually a bit anti-climactic. Maybe the dude isn’t worth that much, I have no clue, but I was sorta expecting in the $100k range or higher.

“Eco-radical?” You’re like a child who has nothing else to say and resorts to ridiculously off-the-mark name-calling. When it comes to environmental issues like clean water and clean air, it’s you libertarians who are the radicals.

Next thing you know Ann will bring a frivolous lawsuit against farmers in South Carolina, calling them anti-environment. Oh wait, they are.
