Forum Post: This is NOT about XL

between 2008-2012, environmental groups spent $1M fighting AGAINST XL
between 2008-2012, oil companies spent $60M fighting FOR XL


SPECIFICALLY - what can we do about this imbalance?

one option would be to ban ALL lobbying by anyone except voters.
This would stop BOTH the $60M and the $1M


Is that the best option?
SPECIFICALLY - What else could be done?

It all comes down to money, and after that it comes down to people organizing and creating educational experiences for people:
