So the Scouts are honoring someone who "had an interest in the environment" and then went on to be president of a company that sells fossil fuels? Does that make any sense?

I could see an award going to a wind turbine plant or a solar farm - but I don't get this. Even if it's the most environmentally friendly Propane company out there. Killing someone nicely is still murder.

I should explain,14 months ago,I had several heart attacks,1 stroke,2 surgeries,leaving me with very poor vision and poor spelling.I believe the scout leader's job has nothing to do with all he has accomplished.He didn't start global warming,and has to earn a living.
