Honor the Earth is an extreme Callaway, Minnesota-based special interest group that opposes the carbon capture and storage projects that are revolutionizing American agriculture.
Winona LaDuke, HTE’s executive director, has attacked carbon capture as a “crazy idea,” despite broad bipartisan support for this groundbreaking technology.
Since 2013, HTE has received grants totaling more than $5.74 million from organizations giving at least $25,000.
The JPB Foundation, a foundation created by Barbara Picower, provided $800,000 in grants to HTE. In 2014, Forbes described her as “the widow of the biggest beneficiary of the Bernard Madoff Ponzi scheme.”
A leader in the radical fossil fuel divestment movement, the McKnight Foundation has poured $350,000 into HTE’s coffers. The McKnight Foundation is also a major funder of the anti-ethanol Sierra Club and the far-left Tides Foundation & Tides Center.
In 2021, Minnesota’s ethanol industry generated an estimated $6.1 billion of economic activity, produced 22,810 jobs, and contributed $2.1 billion to the state’s gross domestic product (GDP), according to the University of Minnesota.
