BP spent $12 million persuading voters to defeat the modest carbon tax proposal

So BP spent $12 million persuading voters to defeat the modest carbon tax proposal in Washington State. So much for Beyond Petroleum. Numerous other Big Oil usual suspects (e.g. Koch) also in play. News report:

Quote:Washington state voters reject carbon-fee initiative
Voters in Tuesday returns rejected I-1631, the proposed carbon fee initiative, which would have raised more than $1 billion annually by 2023

Big oil contributors:

Oil companies also poured in $millions to defeat climate-protecting measures in other states.

Quote:Colorado voters reject tougher rules on oil and gas drilling
Colorado voters on Tuesday rejected a measure calling for greater distances between oil and gas drilling and public spaces, a move opponents said would have sharply limited new wells
https://www.reuters.com/article/us-color...SKCN1NC23Y

Big Oil might hide behind consumer inertia but their dead weight in blocking political climate action is all too clear.
According to ThinkProgress, oil companies spent $60m in total to defeat these state-level democratic initiatives to protect the climate.

It wouldn't matter if the Tax was ONE DOLLAR, the principle of the matter is that the Carbon Tax is a HOAX !!!!!!!!!!

If they brought in a cleanup the Earth Tax and it ACTUALLY went to cleaning up oil fields, de smogging our Atmosphere and getting Plastics etc out of our Oceans, I would be all for it !

It is evil to tax carbon emissions. A tax on carbon, is a tax on life.

Al Gore bought a $9 million dollar beach front home in Cali.
Now that's an inconvienient truth.
Oceans and temperatures aren't rising.
If they were, no sane man would buy ocean front.

Maybe he plans on starting a fishing business to harvest those clean and uncontaminated shell fish.
