Bernie Sanders Will Ban Fracking. Hillary Clinton 'Sold Fracking to the World'

From Feb 4th, 2016:


"Clinton's brazen acceptance of funding from interests promoting fracking, and all the hazards that result from fracking, speaks volumes. From an environmentalist's perspective, this is the equivalent of Hillary Clinton's prison lobbyist donors.

Bernie Sanders never accepted money from corporations involved in fracking, and certainly never accepted money from prison lobbyists. His challenger, on the other hand, is linked to oil and gas contributions that span across the globe. According to Reuters, "the Wall Street Journal reported that the Bill, Hillary and Chelsea Clinton Foundation and the Clinton Global Initiative have accepted large donations from major energy companies Exxon Mobil and Chevron." Clinton's foundations also accepted money from an office of the Canadian government linked to promoting Keystone XL. "

Just pointing out that a vote for Hillary is a vote for fracking as well as the Fossil Fuel industry. This needs to be posted because there are Hillary supporters saying she will help climate change which is severely unlikely.

Are there any lobbyists Hillary doesn't accept money from? .. oh yeah, she turned down the private prison industry on Oct 27th after the Huffington post exposed her for having their biggest lobbyists in her super pacs. They included the for profit prisons as well as the for profit immigration detention centers(which means exporting immigrants is a business for profit.) One month later she went on stage and told blacks how she was going to stop mass incarceration. Lets not forget she only dumped the private prison industry because she had too after being exposed.
