ABSTRACT
The article discusses the campaign of Defenders of Wildlife Action Fund against Steve Pearce, congressman of New Mexico, and other Republican lawmakers who support the carbon-intensive fossil fuel industries. The Fund, which is the political arm of the non-profit organization Defenders of Wildlife, pushes for the election of pro-conservation folks to Congress to swing the vote towards cap-and-trade legislation and renewable energy initiatives. Fund director Rodger Schlickeisen asserts that the group focuses on committee members that could tip the balance in Congress to implement legislations that redirect energy policies away from fossil fuels. The Fund also uses the money it receives from individual donors to directly oppose and support ballot initiatives.
