I have been a fan of MEIC since the late 1970s. I found that the newsletter produced by this organization gave me solid scientific and political information, and still does, for the good fight against oppressive natural resource extractive industries in Montana. When I inherited money one of my first actions was to become a major donor to MEIC. I do this for no other organization. I truly believe in their goal to further renewable resource energy policies that would replace egregious removal of natural carbon based resources. I am now serving my first term as a board member and feel a greater bond with MEIC because of it.
