The Sierra Club, an environmental activist group leading the charge against affordable coal power, is in trouble with donors and activist allies for accepting more than $25 million in funding from a natural gas company to promote the Sierra Club’s anti-coal campaign.

The company, Chesapeake Energy, gave the Sierra Club the secret donations between 2007 and 2010, the Sierra Club has acknowledged. Fellow environmental activist groups are criticizing the Sierra Club for hypocrisy in their battle against the fossil fuel.

The money flowing just from Chesapeake Energy to the Sierra Club was approximately the same as The Heartland Institute’s entire budget during that same time period.
