Lobbying and campaign funding: Who are US mining’s big spenders? - Mining-Technology.com

Lobbying and campaign funding: Who are US mining’s big spenders? - Mining-Technology.com | Agents of Behemoth | Scoop.it

In the run up to the US Presidential Election, Mining Technology looks at the top campaign funders and lobbying activities in the US mining industry.

Occupy Hades's insight:

The Environmental Protection Agency recently announced that it will allow companies to monitor their waste dumping activities and to keep track of the levels of pollution themselves. No one yet knows what that means, but everyone is certain that no corporate polluter can be trusted. So it's a good idea to keep up with their political activities, starting with their lobbyists.
