Revealed: ExxonMobil’s lobbying war on climate change legislation

With all the division these days, did anyone see this and find any kind of bridge? What does bi-partisan mean other than the worst, rather than best, of both parties?

While many people are distracted and divided by culture wars, one of ExxonMobil’s most senior Washington lobbyists, "Mr McCoy claims that ExxonMobil has aggressively fought science to deny climate change in order to maximise profit and shareholder return. He alleges that ExxonMobil joined “shadow groups” to pursue climate change denial."

"‘The Kingmaker’
Mr McCoy names 11 senators who he says are “crucial” to ExxonMobil: Senator Shelley Moore Capito, Senator Joe Manchin, Senator Kyrsten Sinema, Senator Jon Tester, Senator Maggie Hassan, Senator John Barrasso, Senator John Cornyn, Senator Steve Daines, Senator Chris C***s, Senator Mark Kelly and Senator Marco Rubio."

Does the US legalized bribery system of political campaign contributions buy support for the corporate fiduciary responsibility to maximize profits at the expense and detriment of society and earth?

Does the fossil fuel industry know changing to renewable energy, regenerative practices and ecopositive solutions creates millions of jobs and trillions of dollars in wealth and health, and want to stop it because they can't evolve to change their ways?

"Yes, the biosphere got destroyed. But for a beautiful moment in time we created a lot of value for shareholders."

A senior ExxonMobil lobbyist has been captured on camera revealing how the oil giant is using its power and influence to water down US climate legislation.

As Costs Skyrocket, More U.S. Cities Stop Recycling

Contact your community's political and business leaders to institute it's own recycling infrastructure.

When taking a product back to be recycled, reused or biodegradable it'll be designed and engineered to accommodate for infrastructure by creating it's own. We once had a milkman, and deposits at the grocery store, to return our empty glass bottles. Loop is a company already doing such a thing:
https://www.fastcompany.com/90296956/a-coalition-of-giant-brands-is-about-to-change-how-we-shop-forever-with-a-new-zero-waste-platform

If there's a will there's a way. When I heard Senator Feinstein tell the kids in her office asking her to sign on to the Green New Deal, “it's not going to get turned around in ten years.”, I think about how it was just over eight years after Kennedy's speech, on July 20, 1969, that NASA's Apollo 11 mission would land the first humans on the moon.

And also that, WWII was 6 yrs, American Civil War 4 yrs, and Vietnam 20 yrs. So it seems more like it’s a “political will” kind of thing to me.

If the semantics of an inheritance tax can be changed to "death tax", we can certainly call a recycling investment something like a deposit rather than a fine or a fee.

It’s better to design and engineer sustainable circular economy solutions than simply create systems that are just another form of indulgence paid for our environmental sins while doing nothing about them.

With China no longer accepting used plastic and paper, communities are facing steep collection bills, forcing them to end their programs or burn or bury more waste.
