"A week later, Craig Rosebraugh, a vegan baker in Portland, found an odd-looking note in the mailbox of an activist group where he volunteered. The letter — which appeared to have been written with deliberate sloppiness — denounced the Cavel West plant’s role in horse slaughter and claimed its destruction was the work of a new group of radical environmentalists. Believing the group wanted their message shared with the world, Rosebraugh released it to the media. For years, he would receive regular communications from the ELF, eventually becoming a kind of spokesman for the group."

"Set to launch on September 23rd from Emmy Award-winner Adam R. Wood, the film will explore the two sides to the Enright story. Some thought he was a selfless hero battling America’s most insidious enemy; others saw him as a hot-tempered narcissist, staging a publicity stunt to further his career. Either way, when his ‘service’ ended, neither the UK nor the U.S. welcomed him back."
Deadline, November 10, 2020
"The film, which is exec produced by Reardon, Harrison Land, Rob Burk, and produced by Craig Rosebraugh, Matthew Einstein and Adam R. Wood, who also directs, features interviews with the actor, his supporters, and his detractors with the actor’s own helmet-cam video of deadly battles with and interrogations of ISIS fighters."
The Intercept, March 23, 2019
"Less than a week after the law’s passage, Craig Rosebraugh, a spokesperson for ELF and ALF, received a subpoena to testify before members of Congress at a hearing on eco-terrorism. Rosebraugh had been profiled in news articles as the face of the movement, even though his role was to publish anonymous communiques rather than conduct acts of sabotage."

"The man once dubbed "The Face of Eco-Terrorism," who cheered tree-hugging arsonists and thwarted FBI efforts to catch them -- stubbornly taking the Fifth before federal grand juries and an extremely annoyed congressional panel -- is now a red-blooded American lawyer."
The Guardian, September 26, 2013
"Craig Scott Rosebraugh's vigorous, knockabout film is in the manner of that polemicist whose name provokes fury among the right and supporters of the Iraq war: Michael Moore. It is a splenetic, satiric attack on the formidable PR forces, spurious thinktanks and talking heads being mobilised in the US to attack the idea of man-made global warming."
Variety, March 8, 2013
"Rosebraugh, however, focuses less on the issue of global warming itself and more on the deniers and their big-money backers. He scores points by contrasting his film’s emotional title with the temperate rationality of his talking-head scientists."
Politico, March 8, 2013
"Rosebraugh says he grew frustrated at seeing climate change deniers on television” who really went to town in trying to confuse the public and politicians but just bringing doubt about whether climate change is real and, to some degree, they’ve succeeded.”

At the front of the line leading to Rosebraugh’s gallows are the Koch brothers, David and Charles, industrialists and conservative activists who contribute heavily to what Rosebraugh calls the climate denial propaganda machine.
Hollywood Reporter, February 7, 2012
"Craig Rosebraugh's film is an investigation of the influence the fossil fuel industry has had on the political process and efforts to combat climate change."
"When they were done, they mailed the communiqué to Craig Rosebraugh, a vegan activist living in Portland who had a reputation as an uncompromising radical. Although Rosebraugh wasn’t a member of the cell, he recognized that he was being offered the role of spokesman for the ELF and sent the communiqué to every news outlet in the state."
For five years the aboveground face of the underground environmental group Earth Liberation Front (ELF), Rosebraugh is a man of unrepentant revolutionary convictions.
The House Resources Subcommittee on Forests and Forests Health subpoenaed Craig Rosebraugh to appear and discuss activities of both ELF and the Animal Liberation Front. The former spokesman for the radical environmental group, Earth Liberation Front, invoked his Fifth Amendment right to protect himself from self-incrimination in refusing to testify before a House committee examining the growing use of violence in environmental efforts.
"Craig Rosebraugh is perhaps the most infamous environmental activist in Portland, if not the entire Northwest. As the former spokesperson for the firebrand Earth Liberation Front, Rosebraugh has spent plenty of time defending anarchy in front of media microphones and cameras. But on Halloween, Rosebraugh sat earnestly in front of City Council and petitioned for justice, fairness, and order from the local police."
New York Times
"Craig Rosebraugh stands out in Portland -- among activists, at least -- as the guy who spoke up on behalf of the Earth Liberation Front, a group that, through Rosebraugh, took credit for burning down a mountaintop ski resort in Vail in October in the name of preserving a lynx habitat."
