GOP Hopefuls Get $62M From Fossil Fuel Donors: Origins of Climate Denialism?

Elliot Hill and Mark Sovel | (TheLipTV Video Report) | – –

“Eight out of the 17 Republican presidential candidates have received at least $62m in donations from a small number of wealthy individuals and corporations with close ties to the fossil fuel industries, according to a report by Greenpeace and the Center for Media and Democracy via the Guardian. Among the recipients are climate change denier and Texas Senator Ted Cruz, former Florida Governor Jeb Bush, and former Texas Governor Rick Perry. We look at the report on the Lip News with Elliot Hill and Mark Sovel.”

  1. They are putting a golden noose around their/our necks because the golden glitter of power/privilege is so wonderful to behold. Their children and ours will thank them with curses.

    @ARTSYJUDITH wonder if those companies expect anything in return for $62m or if they are totally irrational (cf clubs Australia)

  3. There is a very real chance that one of these right-wing anti-Planet Earth political harlots (no offense to harlots intended) could be held responsible for more human tragedy, pain and suffering than all the “leaders” in the history of civilization, combined.

    The initial wave of mass devastation brought on by the century of greed and indifference by the MIC aka fossil fuel crime syndicate will likely occur during their administration if actually elected.

    All of these “crude” candidates should review history very carefully on how the right-wing Mussolini finally ended his tenure of leadership.

    In a gas station.

    And they won’t be able to blame it on Obama.
