Andrew Sullivan.com The best sort of conservative commentator.   Big on freedom, small on authority.   Gay as well!   Perfect!

Anti-Lomborg.com Lomborg's enemies gang up on him.   A useful resource with some good points, but spoiled by gloating over the violent attack on him in an Oxford bookshop.   People who are losing the argument often turn to violence.

Arianna Stassinopoulos

The Atlas Foundation encourages and supports other independent think tanks

The Ayn Rand Environmentalist Institute emphasises the stark contrast between those who wish to protect the environment for its own sake and those who wish to use it for the sake of humanity.  Much of it is taken up with attacks on the lunatic fringe of environmentalism, such as the Unabomber, and violent animal activists. Most people, even most woolly environmentalists, are more reasonable. They want a better environment for man’s sake. They just need to be reminded of the trade-offs, and how capitalism can help them achieve their aims better than socialism.

Environmental Defense previously the Environmental Defense Fund a traditional environmental group that originated in the campaign in the 1960s to ban DDT in the US.   In recent years it has become a leading advocate of economic incentives as a new approach to solving environmental problems, although it still campaigns for rather too many unwise government regulations and subsidies.

The Liberty Land Trust  in Massachusetts raises money to buy and maintain open space in its natural state. By owning and maintaining the land, they protect the environment without forcing taxpayers to foot the bill.  They neither seek nor accept public funding, and aim to prove that the private sector can support such valuable programs without the interference of government, and an ever-increasing tax burden.   Unlike the Sierra Club or Greenpeace, your money is spent protecting the environment now, instead of lining the pockets of lobbyists. Surf over, make a donation and prove them right.

Native Forest Council Good people who care about the environment but have not yet made the key leap of understanding.  They see publicly-owned land damaged by government-subsidised private loggers, miners and cattle grazers, and blame the latter.  They have not yet realised that the fundamental fault is public ownership and public subsidy.

Remembering Ronald Reagan 

Resources for the Future: This Washington-based environmental think tank champions two iGreen principles. Environmental policy must balance costs and benefits, and laws prohibiting cost consideration are unacceptable. Environmental goals should be accomplished as cheaply possible, which often means using economic incentives (tradable permits or pollution charges) in lieu of command-and-control regulation (e. g. requiring the installation of particular pollution-control equipment). 

Right to roam The UK Government plans to turn the countryside into a commons.  Good populist politics, but an environmental disaster.

Tax Freedom Day: indicates how much governments take from their citizens in taxation. The higher the taxes, the later it falls. No country has it in April. Most fall at the end of May or into June. This is one of the best TFD web-sites, with the date for many countries, and graphs showing where it is moving forward to freedom, or back to collectivist darkness.

TomPaine.com The New York Times refers to TomPaine.com as "a public interest group."  Presumably they think that higher taxes, bigger government and more restrictions on political speech are in the "public interest."
