hillary clinton lied about campaign contributions from the fossil fuel industry as seen in this video. She needs her campaign to divest from donations from the fossil fuel industry and she should return all contributions she and her affiliated super-pacs have received is she is really committed to fighting climate change and promoting renewable, clean energy. From +Greenpeace USA .....
I went to the Hillary Clinton rally because I care deeply about protecting our democracy from fossil fuel interests.
I had one question for Hillary: “Will you act on your words and reject future fossil fuel money in your campaign?”
I was genuinely shocked by her response. Please watch and share the video here:
Greenpeace USA, along with 20 other organizations, launched the pledge to #FixDemocracy, asking all presidential candidates to reject future fossil fuel contributions, champion campaign finance reform, and defend the right to vote for all. Bernie Sanders immediately signed the pledge. Hillary Clinton and the Republican candidates have not.
I didn’t ask this question to annoy or discredit Hillary — I just want to know if we can trust her to truly listen to the people if she wins the office. But as long as candidates are taking large sums of money from fossil fuel interests, I feel very uncomfortable trusting them to do the right thing for our climate. Runaway climate change will put everyone on the planet at risk — but fossil fuel companies are still searching for more places to drill, frack, and mine — and more politicians that will let them do it!
If you’re concerned about fossil fuel money in our democracy, please watch and share this clip today. Together, we can #FixDemocracy.
Organizer, Greenpeace USA
