Wal-mart's anti environmental track record

But Wal-Mart gives millions of dollars in political contributions to candidates who oppose environmental protection. How can the company expect to be taken seriously on its environmental commitments when its political actions are so clearly aimed in the opposite direction? From Congress to the White House, [[Wal-Mart]'s] campaign dollars are supporting an anti-environmental agenda far different than the company’s new public relations campaign would have Americans believe.

During the 2006 election cycle, Wal-Mart contributed to 187 Members of Congress who voted against improving fuel efficiency standards for cars and light trucks.

In addition, Wal-Mart contributed to 206 Members of Congress who voted for the 2005 Energy Bill in the 109th Congress. This legislation is considered one of the most harmful anti-environmental pieces of legislation in the past decade. Not only does the bill fail to include meaningful solutions to our energy and global warming problems, but it would also turn back the clock by weakening environmental laws and giving away billions in tax breaks and subsidies to oil, gas and coal companies.
