Default Three interesting ways Big Oil spends its profits:

1) $105 Million On Lobbying. Another $50 million is spent on contributions to politicians, 90% of which go to Republicans.

2) Misinformation campaigns, including over $150 million on TV ads promoting fossil fuel interests, particularly oil and coal.

3) Campaigns against clean energy. Contributions to Americans for Prosperity and the American Energy Alliance - both of which are working hard to defeat wind energy tax subsidies. (Wind could be a major competitor to fossil fuels, listen to this Science Friday podcast)


This is why we have the most anti-environment House of Representatives in history.
