The Color of Astroturf really is “Green”

See Green-Groups money at work 

A search of publicly available records reveals a web of connections between environmental groups in and out of Colorado. National and out-of-state environmental organizations have poured money into the coffers of various green organizations within the state of Colorado, money which then can be traced to lobbyists, activist efforts, get-out-the-vote (GOTV) operations, and candidates running for local, state, and federal offices…

Coloradans for Clean Energy was created for the 2004 election cycle to facilitate the flow of money into Colorado. The bulk of the funding for the group came from organizations outside Colorado. Of all the large money donors for Coloradans for Clean Energy, only three were from Colorado.  Those groups kicked in roughly $300,000, or roughly 30 percent of total funding received by Coloradans for Clean Energy that cycle. Nine groups of large donors from outside the state combined to contribute $420,000.
