Hillary Clinton: Reject Fossil Fuel Contributions

At a Hillary Clinton rally on March 31, the presidential candidate lost her patience with a young Greenpeace activist, who thanked Clinton for her commitment to climate change and then asked her whether she'll reject fossil-fuel money. Pointing her finger at the activist, Secretary Clinton said she was "so sick of the Sanders campaign lying about me."

In fact, she is the only Democratic candidate who has not signed the Fix Democracy pledge rejecting fossil-fuel money, and her campaign and super PACs have received millions of dollars from fossil-fuel lobbyists and investors. Watch:

Clinton can show strong climate leadership by taking a clear stand against the dirty fossil-fuel interests investing in climate destruction.

Sign below to add your name asking Hillary Clinton to reject fossil-fuel money:

"Refuse money from fossil-fuel interests and champion a people-powered democracy."

    The fossil fuel era must end. Be a true leader and push that as fast as possible, please. You cannot be a legitimate defender of the environment while taking money from FF interests, whether from the oil companies or from individuals with vested interests in continuing to dangerously warm the planet. Stopping the rapid rate of climate change will take extra-ordinary actions at every level. You could make your mark in history Mrs Clinton by stepping up as is needed to be a world leader to stop fossil fuels and transition to cleaner practices in all sectors. Fossil fuels should be limited to essentials where other forms of power aren’t adequate (like airplanes). PLEASE accept how crucial this is for our species, and become a true leader to inspire Americans. Start by refusing all contributions from FF interests. Thank you.

    We need to take every possible step to protect or environment. Taking money from the fossil fuel industry is going in the wrong direction in my view.

    Hillary should return all the money from Lobbyists. She should also work with her husband to return the multitude of millions of donations to the Clinton Foundation which came from Saudi Arabia, Kuwait and other oil rich nations!

    I voted for Bernie because climate change is the mosta cute problem in the world today and fossil fuels are making our planet uninhabitable.
