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.

WHITE HOUSE: Energy execs spend big at Trump hotel 'Disneyland' - E & E News

WHITE HOUSE: Energy execs spend big at Trump hotel 'Disneyland' - E & E News | Agents of Behemoth | Scoop.it

The Trump International Hotel rolled out the red carpet last summer for the two coal companies that have done the most to curry favor with the owner of the Washington, D.C., luxury destination: President Trump.

Occupy Hades's insight:

While taxpayers like you are struggling to pay their inflated tax bills, Donald Trump is raking in the cash from the lobbyists and executives who stay at his hotel. However, he isn't required to disclose how much he earns and he continually refuses to show anyone his tax returns. It doesn't seem fair, does it? No, it doesn't.
