In 2012, the Sierra Club indicted Droz and the Koch brothers, industrialists who have backed Americans for Prosperity, among other efforts, for using misleading or otherwise unreliable information to turn the public against climate science and renewable energy sources.
'His own version of science'
Assessing Droz' activity in recent years, the Sierra Club, in a report titled "Clean Energy Under Siege," painted the former real estate investor as "little more than a climate-change denier" who "uses his own version of 'science' as a means of casting doubt."
Droz laughed off the report.
A stark difference exists between an activist like himself, and wealthy industrialists such as the Koch brothers, he said.
"I give people information," Droz said. "The Koch brothers hand out money."
"It's interesting that they [Sierra Club] view information as a threat," Droz added.
In the end, Droz says that's all he's doing – providing information. While many have decried the potentially devastating impacts of ignoring a rise in sea-level, Droz remains unconvinced that his work will have any negative consequences – long or short term.
He reiterates that he's not in this for the money, and he takes issue with being labeled as a climate-change denier.
"We don't know," he says, is the only legitimate answer to the question of man-made climate change.
If Droz is called odd or disingenuous for his positions, so be it. He has been called a lot worse over the years.
"It's only the pioneers who get arrows in their back," he said.
