McCain Green Reality Check
Sen. John McCain is drilling for oil and gas money at the Petroleum Club in Denver Thursday, reports Colorado Confidential.
McCain talks a good game on global warming, notes reporter Wendy Norris, but he has accepted more than half a million dollars from oil and gas interests over the past 30 years. Since he launched his 2008 bid, he’s taken more than $230,000 from employees and PACs of energy conglomerations. And his top advisers and fundraisers have received $6.5 million in contracts from oil interests. How green can you be when your greenbacks come from the carbon lobby?
