Its interesting that its OK for corporations to move offshore for tax reasons, but not charitable organizations.  Its also interesting that an environmental organization that relies on property rights and private ownership to accomplish its goals is somehow suspect.  I personally find that much more appealing than the Sierra Club's nihilist lobbying tactics.
