There are reports that oil, coal and gas industries in America have invested more than half a billion dollars on lobbying against acting on climate change. In Australia there are more than 540 'registered lobbyists, + many more unregistered. So I'm wondering how many of these are in the oil, coal and gas business, and how much do they spend on their lobbying?

    Recommend editing bias out of your question; "anti-scientific" and "propaganda" impart a negative connotation. – Drunk Cynic Dec 18 '16 at 14:55
  • As @DrunkCynic suggested I edited the question to have a more neutral point of view. – Philipp Dec 18 '16 at 19:21
  • The inability of Australian politicians to look past short term goals probably does a lot more for them honestly – Thomo Dec 18 '16 at 22:40
