Big Oil, Gas, and Coal continue to receive at least $10 billion each year in government handouts -- in the face of increasing climate impacts around the country and budget cuts to essential services for the poor and middle class...and despite the fact that they are the most profitable companies in human history. Legalized bribery -- in the form of campaign contributions to members of Congress -- makes this possible.
It's time our elected representatives stop funding the source of the problem, and start funding the solution. The impacts of Hurricane/Superstorm Sandy shine an even greater light on the need to separate oil and state.
Please send a letter and let your Representatives in Congress know that you expect them to:
1) End all government handouts to oil, gas and coal companies;
2) Reject future campaign contributions from these Dirty Energy industries.
