Pro-Paris companies' donations to group fighting climate rule

These companies recently advocated for the U.S. to stay in an international climate change-fighting pact known as the Paris accord. Still, they donated from 2014 to 2017 to the Republican Attorneys General Association as it organized against the Clean Power Plan, the domestic effort to reduce the power sector’s planet-warming emissions. Here’s what these companies contributed to RAGA and its Democratic counterpart during that period. See the companies' comments here.
