While a list/record of this nature is helpful it leaves out the kind of $ that goes to Republican climate-change denying senators and governors like Rick Scott, Scott Walker, and James Inhofe, among others. It's these clowns that hold back progress by virtue of their influence over their constituents, not to mention state funds and what they will be earmarked for.

In other words, this is bare bones:

"In 2015 ExxonMobil gave $61,500 to ALEC—a group that has spread climate misinformation to state lawmakers and frequently fought against renewable energy proposals at the state level. The company gave $1 million to the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, which has worked aggressively to oppose clean energy standards and continues to prioritize opposing EPA’s science-based finding that greenhouse gases endanger public health. Exxon gave $75,000 to the National Black Chamber of Commerce, which has falsely claimed that “… there is no sound science to support the claims of Global Warming.”
