This October 2018 video from the USA says about itself:
Watch the US stall on climate change for 12 years
It was once a bipartisan issue, but now one of America’s major parties [the Republicans] acts like climate science doesn’t exist. This is an updated version of a video we published in 2016.

Tories have taken £1.5m in donations from polluters and climate-denialists
THE Tories have taken £1.5 million in funding from polluting industries and climate-denial funders since the general election, official data has revealed.
Figures published by the Electoral Commission and in the MPs’ register of interests show a string of donations to the party from anti-environment groups in the last three months.
Under-fire Home Secretary Priti Patel is among the Tory politicians who have benefited.
She received £21,000 from backers of the Global Warming Policy Foundation (GWPF), a lobby group which works to mitigate policies against climate change.
Other gifts were given to the Conservative Party as a whole, which received £1.4m in donations from heavy-machinery firm JCB.
London City Airport also contributed to the Tories in the past three months, handing £12,500 to the 1922 Committee of backbench MPs.
In total, £1,488,478 has been given to the party since its landslide election victory in December.
Labour MP Dr Alan Whitehead said: “News that the Conservative Party is funded by fossil-fuel interests raises worrying questions about Tory sincerity on net-zero and the green economy.
“Businesses rarely hand over money for no reason. The question for the Conservative Party is: what have these companies bought?”
The Greens also hit out over the funding, saying that no major party can be trusted to tackle the climate emergency.
Sian Berry, party co-leader and London mayoral candidate, said: “Money talks, but we cannot have business as usual in this climate emergency.”
PRO-TRUMP CLIMATE DENIAL GROUP FIRES STAFF The Illinois-based Heartland Institute ― an influential climate-denial think tank bankrolled by President Donald Trump’s far-right billionaire donors, has laid off nearly a dozen staffers amid financial troubles, according to three former employees. Heartland captured headlines last month for promoting a German teenager with ties to neo-Nazis as the climate denier’s alternative to acclaimed youth activist Greta Thunberg. [HuffPost]
