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."

    This is the signature world issue of our time. I won’t vote for anyone who does not take this pledge.

    It is truly appalling that any elected official would sign off on any policy that requires exemption from Clean Air, Clean Water, and Clean drinking water federal regulations and pretends to “regulate” an industry that is basically without oversight or accountability. It is further disgusting that under the false premise of “energy independence” entire communities in the U.S. are being poisoned and ruined so that private investment interests can siphon off U.S. assets for private, and obscene, greed. As an American, who has voted for you in the past, I am appalled by your actions to date, and have little confidence that you will do what’s right for all: not just for obscene greed.

    Put your money where your mouth is — if you want even a tiny iota of credibility. As of now, you have none.

    For the sake of your child, your grandchild and future generations….take bold and aggressive steps to leave fossil fuels in the ground and take the lead in investing in a swift transition to renewable energy. Climate change is here and is worsening at a faster pace than scientists have estimated. Our window to avert unstoppable climate chaos is closing. The time is now. Refuse money from fossil fuel interests and sign the Fix Democracy pledge! Please.

    Fracking is veiled disposal of hazardous waste and/or the waste or destruction of water and aquifers. What sort of legacy will you leave?

    Those of us who are watching the campaigns closely are fully aware of where your funding is coming from, it was unfair for you to attack a member of Greenpeace and blame it on the Sanders campaign. For the sake of the earth and the nation as a whole please reject any fossil-fuel money, especially those who are lobbyists for the fossil-fuel companies. You have stated that your contributors will not affect your policies if elected, let me be frank, they would not be giving you money if they didn’t expect something in return. Don’t be the best president that money can buy. Save some shred of honor as you move forward.

    Oil/gas is poisoning us. Proof right here near Bakersfiled, CA and the last explosion in Southern CA.
