    On Climate Change Politics – This Is The Way It Works

    Why Isn't Anyone Lobbying For Climate Change?

    Senator Sheldon Whitehouse (D-RI), June 7, 2016 (Forbes)

    “…[My recent lobbying meetings, in which climate change was not brought up, help] explain why so little progress is being made in Congress on climate change…[TechNet represents technology giants like Apple and Google and New Energy companies that tend to be forward-leaning on climate change…The western lumber industry is losing millions of acres of pine forest to the [climate-change nurtured] pine beetle…[The property casualty insurance is seeing rapidly rising claim payouts due to extreme weather’s home and property destruction]…Washington’s dirty secret is that even the American companies that are really good on sustainability put net zero effort into lobbying Congress on climate change…[Some are members of bigger, climate change-denying business groups like] the U.S. Chamber of Commerce…[Many say fear of retribution is their] reason to stand clear…[P]lenty of Republican members of Congress would like to get to work on climate change…But their immediate calculation is that the fossil fuel industry will punish them…and they won’t have a single trustworthy friend…We are far closer to getting something big done on climate in Congress than most people think, but the good guys in the corporate sector have to start showing up.” click here for more
