It is all good and dandy but excuse me making over $200,000 in CEO salary is a rip off. Total. Warren Buffet pays himself a $100,000 and he is the richest man on earth. I guess Ken is overindulging and is not being modest.

It's unfortunate that the US has become "the best government that money can buy". Consequently, mega-corporations dictate everything in our lives through ownership of government agencies such as the FDA, USDA, etc. Lobbyists (legalized corruption) representing citizens are few and far between, and have comparatively "chump change" for "dues". Environmental Working Group (EWG) happens to be one of them.

As others have mentioned, much of their data is obsolete, and not well researched, but just keeping up with it must be a daunting job. Taking half of the $211,818 (4.18% of expenses) salary that's going to President Ken Cook and using it for whatever it takes to get up to speed would be the first order of business. The second would be to pull some of that $180,611 from the co-founder's salary (another 3.56% of expenses).

this is a highly effective organization, I very much appreciate all that they do, and yet I am now disappointed to see that the CEO's salary is well about 200,000 now. This is a non-profit, and they are asking small donors to give who make a lot less than that. Environmental groups are going corporate without evening knowing it by accepting that the only reward is a high salary. That is ultimately one of the biggest reasons for environmental destruction--greed.

cut all the exec's pay in half, which would still be in the 6 figures
