"The industry is doing everything they can to make sure we never hold them accountable."

"Suing the big oil companies like we did the tobacco companies is a good start, but we need more to get our climate-destroying emissions under control.

And the industry is doing everything they can to make sure we never hold them accountable. Taxpayers for Common Sense documents how the industry fielded over 700 lobbyists just last year, spending almost $120 million to buy legislators across Washington, DC."

Unbelievable. Whomever wrote that spent first half of the article to point out how deeply the fossil companies are corrupting the political establishment in USA, and then they propose that the very same establishment… nationalize the sector.
