J. Martin Goebel, President Sustainable NW,  and Roger Sant

Martin Goebel is trustee for Roger Sant's Summit Charitable Foundation. With assets of nearly $75 million in 2001, one of the several grantees was Sustainable NW, receiving $342,875 from 1997-2001.  The funds come from Sant's company AES, worldwide developer of power in 29 countries, power "from coal to gas to renewables such as wind, hydro and biomass."

Martin Goebel was director of World Wildlife Fund, which is partner of United Nations Foundation with George Soros and Ford Foundation.

Soros funds Tides, who funds World Wildlife Fund, The Nature Conservancy.....

Toni Thayer responds to discussion on Sustainable NW on KBC Discussion Forum "...your founder and president, Martin Goebel, has previous ties to TNC and WWF. .. Goebel is a trustee of the Summit Charitable Foundation which has assets of nearly $75 million. This foundation belongs to the Mormon Roger Sant and his money from Applied Energy Services Corp, AES, “worldwide developer of power projects”, “a global power company operating in 29 countries”. Most of the power for global AES comes from “unsustainable” and “non-renewable” coal and natural gas. But, hey, that’s OK if his donation money comes from dirty industries, just as long as it keeps coming, right? That dirty money, no doubt, pays your dirty salary...I wonder if he/his foundation/his global power company could have a conflict of interest related to power generated by those “renewable” Klamath dams they want removed?"
