GOP Energy Chair Received Last-Minute Big Oil Donations After Hinting Oil Subsidies Could End: Interestingly, when Fred Upton said he would look at oil subsidies, Big Oil sent last-minute contributions to the candidate. New campaign filings show that since Upton made his comment early in October, he received several new donations from oil companies--he has received nearly $450,000 from the oil and gas industry over his career in the House (Center of Responsive Politics reports).
Big Oil has a strangle hold and wants to keep it that way. They pay little in taxes, get tax revenue kick backs from the republican politicians they own and spend 100's of millions influencing our political system. And our standard of living gets left behind...
PM Helle Thorning-Schmidt of Denmark - the leader in clean, renewable energy - but Denmark is not quite the leader. Denmark's target date for 100% renewable is 2050. Scotland's target is more ambitious: 2025 - They're in a competition, & all of them are beating America with its corrupt politicians & their corrupt lobbies full of corporate dirty money. http://ecolocalizer.com/2011/11/27/denmark-aiming-for-100-renewable-energy-by-2050/
GOP Congressman Subpoenas Those Investigating Big Oil's Climate Cover-Up..Here is another GOP climate change denier working on behalf of Big Oil, trying to stop investigators from proving the conspiracy by oil companies to deny climate change is a real problem.
100's of billions in oil profits and yet republicans continue to give big oil companies billions of our tax money through subsidies and through loss of tax revenue with tax cuts, all the while expecting to get some of it back in the form of campaign contributions and other handouts.
