Peabody Energy, the largest coal company in America, has gone into bankruptcy. As part of its filings, it has had to release documents that show where they have spent their money. The records show that they have funded studies, lobbyists and trade associations that falsely claim that climate change is not man-made.
According to The Guardian, “The filings do not list amounts or dates. But the documents suggest Peabody supported dozens of groups engaged in blocking environmental regulations in addition to a number of contrarian scientists who together have obstructed U.S. and global action on climate change.”
