A Student's Guide to How Corporate Oil, Gas, and Coal Money Influences U.S. Energy Policy

Unprecedented amounts of money are being poured into Congress from the fossil fuel industry in a myriad of ways, both explicit and undisclosed in an attempt to undermine America’s ability to confront the climate change crisis.

Big oil, gas, and coal are using their money to have the upper hand in America’s energy and climate discussion, but students have their own power and can insist that our political leaders step up and be accountable to future generations and to the planet.

This guide takes the reader behind the curtains of American politics and policy development to shed light on the handful of fossil fuel-based companies that are pouring money into Congress and the media in an attempt to undermine America's ability to confront the climate change crisis.
