If these people really cared, they would put their funds into new technology. To use less oil and to extract more of our own oil should be their real cause.
There are plenty of 'old' oil fields and ways to open new fields that will help make American life more secure, and protect the environment.
Right now, they seem to have been a one note concerto. Very irritating.
Rather than just championing massive investment (someone elses money), perhaps they could offer their millions to actually help develop alterative energy sources.
But no, such development could cause pollution or even (scary) environmental damage so they would rather sit back and throw rocks.
