Dirty Money - USA

I recently discovered a fantastic (though depressing) website that may explain why America is making so little progress in moving towards renewable energy, while still using taxpayer's money to subsidise oil and coal.

It's called Dirty Money, and it's where you can find your local representative, and just how much coal and oil money they've taken. I've written about Joe Barton before - so i looked up his diagram (yes it's so big it needs a diagram)

On the website you can hover over the circles to see each oil/coal company and how much cash they've swung Joe's way. But the scariest bit is when you hover over his face, and the grand total comes up. $1,882,433. And he's not even the biggest!
