Oil Companies & U.S. Chamber of Commerce — One & the Same?

May 6th, 2011 | by Zachary Shahan

Continuing on with our series on 350.org's The U.S. Chamber of Commerce Doesn't Speak for Me campaign, let's take a quick look at some ties between the Chamber and the oil industry. As you may have heard, and 350.org recently noted, large oil companies are having a ball, raking in billions and billions of dollars in profit (that's right, not revenue but profit) while the U.S. economy suffers: "Exxon Mobil nabbed $10.7bn; Shell pulled in $6.9bn; Chevron, $4.5bn; and last but not least, BP, after accounting for oil spill losses still made out with $7.1bn."
