Led by the oil and gas industry, this sector regularly pumps the vast majority of its campaign contributions into Republican coffers. Even as other traditionally GOP-inclined industries have shifted somewhat to the left, this sector has remained rock-solid red.

Since the 1990 election cycle, more than two-thirds of this sector's contributions to candidates and party committees has gone to Republicans. Besides oil and gas, the electric utilities industry is another big donor in this sector. Less generous, but even more partisan, is the mining industry.

Quote:Since the 1990 election cycle, more than two-thirds of this sector's contributions to candidates and party committees has gone to Republicans. Besides oil and gas, the electric utilities industry is another big donor in this sector. Less generous, but even more partisan, is the mining industry.

Contributions from the oil industry spiked in 2012, increasing from $34 million in 2010 to $79 million in 2012; 87 percent of its donations to candidates and parties went to Republicans. Almost $20 million went to outside spending groups. Oxbow Corp and Chevron Corp were responsible for about $7 million of this outside money. Oxbow gave $4 million to the single-candidate super PAC supporting former Gov. Mitt Romney presidential bid, Restore Our Future, and $550,000 to the conservative super PAC America 360 Committee, which supported Scott Brown ® in his contest against Elizabeth Warren (D) for a Massachusetts Senate seat. Chevron gave $2.5 million to a different conservative super PAC, the Congressional Leadership Fund.

Energy companies often favor lawmakers in fossil fuel-producing states. Republicans have led the efforts to defeat President Barack Obama's climate-change efforts. Still, the energy sector did contribute $2.5 million to Obama's 2012 campaign. It donated more than $10 million to presidential hopeful Mitt Romney's, however.

According to advocacy group Oil Change International, President Obama "proposed cutting [oil] subsidies every year he's been in office." The group estimates that these cuts would save about $4 billion annually, but none of cuts have made it through Congress.

Whereas the U.S. was once dependent on the Middle East and other nations for oil and feared ever-climbing prices, by 2015 it had become the largest oil producer in the world, largely due to the shale gas boom. From 2013 to 2016, the average price for a barrel of crude oil dropped from $98 to $52, which experts predicted would decrease oil production in the long run

It would be nice if you could show the actual thing you're claiming instead of something else. You claim that information disproving the Climate change myth is paid for by the oil business, but instead of showing this to be the case you give us campaign donations to republicans.

This is intellectual dishonesty.

But just to counter your so-called "argument", Hillary got a lot of her campaign donations from Saudi Arabia, a nation completely dependent on oil income. Can't get more BigOil than that!

B.S., a group of REAL scientists is suing and demanding prosecution for crimes against humanity for this now proven set of lies.

It IS getting colder, unquestionably, so keep it up and maybe you can be charged as well.

It doesn't matter how much proof the climate is warming exists.. idiots like you will still try to feebly assert it's getting colder with absolutely zero proof...

get a clue, no one believes you.

Blind fkn cretins can't see their beloved GOP is sold out , being paid to make this a partisan issue and has received billions in the process.

It's more than enough proof that the policy is being formed around disinfo published by the right-wing AGW denial machine..

there is little point anyway.. it wouldn't matter what I posted all you would do is launch one of your 3rd grade cyclical arguments, just as you are attempting to do with that statement.

which staff would that be?

the one that just made and pinned a provocative thread and pinned it to use the death of a lovely Aussie girl to bait and inflame the rabid far-right gun-nuts and other scumbags that are like plague on this forum?

Quote:"Administrator Pruitt works long hours and is available around the clock," said EPA spokeswoman Liz Bowman. "He is extremely focused and disciplined, which is evident by the fact that he spearheaded over two dozen significant regulatory actions since being sworn in."

Pruitt has riled environmentalists by routinely raising doubts about the realities of climate change and by vowing to sweep away scores of Obama-era regulations rules to help business. Before becoming head of the EPA under Republican President Donald Trump, he was Oklahoma’s attorney general and repeatedly sued the agency he now runs to block federal environmental rules.

The travel records show Pruitt's schedule this spring often took him to cities in the U.S. heartland where he held meetings – often with oil and gas industry representatives - made speeches and attended events, before flying to Tulsa for extended weekends.

The records showed Pruitt paid for some legs of the trips directly related to his visits home, although it was not clear he paid for all such legs.

The airfare for Pruitt’s travel to and from Oklahoma totaled more than $12,000, the Environmental Integrity Project said. That did not include travel and lodging expenses for his staff or his security detail, the records for which were not immediately available.

The practice of spending long weekends away from Washington was seen as unusual by former officials.

Dude , get over it. We will use every f*cking drop of oil till its all gone. Just remember every car tire take 7 gallons of oil to make. Plastic and rubber comes from oil.

Then you have planes and Jets;That industry pollutes the skies every f*cking day. But this aero pollution is not as much of a pollutant when compared to a f*cking volcano erupting .


Yes,,Species might die, Humans might die for whatever reason but this planet is not changing because of what man is doing. Mars climate is changing and theres no humans there.


What say you ya f*cking retard?

You're so emotional on this issue yet you're sheltered with heating/air, internet, probably a car.

You don't practice what you preach. You're just another moron trying to assume they're better than people because you're "aware" that the climate is changing.

Yet the climate has changed throughout the earth's history and we only truly know a minute fraction of that history.

Unfortunately some are convinced they know everything about this planet.

Obviously you believe these people and will defend them while using devices and energies that are helping to worsen the issue that you believe in.

To put it short you're an asshole and will die alone and no one will give a f*#k about your stupid plight of being right on the internet.
