1.0: (A) Wealthy corporate stockholders exert pressure onto a collection of business leaders to produce more profits with the least possible expense incurred to their corporate holdings and interests. (B) A wealthy individual decides they need to make more profits with the least possible expense incurred to their personal holdings or interests and decides to start a corporation to do so.
2.0: Entity (A) or (B) searches for possible resources to exploit, under the guise of a suitable and legally tax deductible designation (see Development, Exploration and Research).
3.0: Said business entity (1.0) pools massive amounts of money to fund an elaborate and dishonest information campaign. These campaigns begin with heavily weighted research designed to guide the science away from fact. Research is directed toward bankrupt state institutions with large grant checks stapled to the proposal. This corporately guided science results in journal entries and research papers that validate the intentions and goals of said resources where exploitation is possible (2.0). News releases are strategically submitted and some public interest is stirred.
4.0: The stirring of public interest (3.0) serves two primary goals. First (4.1), to spark the interest of other self-serving wealthy investors. Second (4.2), to find out what public dissent may exist so it can be destroyed with massive legal force. Once this is discovered an expensive and well-trained team of lawyers, marketing experts and anti-scientists are collected to compose a deceitful and cleaver set of messages to misinform the general, disengaged, public. Another group of well-trained lawyers, marketing experts and anti-scientists are devoted to pressuring lawmakers into passing laws and regulations that benefit said exploitable resource opportunity (2.0). Most of these laws and regulations are written by the corporate teams, not publicly elected lawmakers.
5.0: Land is leased or purchased. Leasing property from a private land owner (5.1) is good business move for said entity (A, B) as many private land owners will accept any dollar amount that is promised, no matter how intensive the lease or practice. Leasing property from a public entity (5.2), such as those on the city, township, county, state or federal levels are more promising yet. Regardless of intensity, the consistent flow of tax dollars will generally allow most resource exploitation to occur unrestricted (outside of obvious and obligatory public safeguards) on public land. The most intensive, destructive and disruptive resource exploitation is simply moved to remotely populated public lands or uninhabited wildlife areas.
