Lessons from the climate fight: `moderate' is meaningless | Grist
The Senate is basically an oligarchic institution, so it's no huge surprise that many senators gave more weight to the interests of fossil-fuel industries than they did to the public interest in mitigating climate change and developing clean energy. Oil and gas groups outspent green groups 7 to 1 -- and that doesn't count Big Coal money. Exxon alone outspent all green groups together.


Any idiot can face a crisis - it's day to day living that wears you out.
