Here's an easy quiz: What multinational company writes off, every year, by far, the largest Congressional lobbying expenses
(tens of millions of dollars every year)?
1. It's the US's largest manufacturer of wind turbines and related equipment
2. It's planning the world's largest factory to manufacture solar panels
3. Despite having billions
in US revenue, it's been widely criticized for paying zero
That's just one company. There are thousands of smaller ones capitalizing on the save-the-Earth hysteria.
Follow the money, indeed. It always works.
