Google upsets environmentalists by hosting fundraiser for Sen. Jim Inhofe Published: July 12, 2013

A handful of environmental activists gathered Thursday outside a glitzy fundraiser in Washington to protest corporate hypocrisy.
The company being targeted was an unlikely villain for environmental protests, Time reports.

“Google is supposed to be green,” says Matt Owens, a climate activist from suburban Washington. “What they’re doing is completely unacceptable.”
What Google was doing was hosting a fundraiser for Oklahoma Senator Jim Inhofe, who is up for re-election next year.
Inhofe is perhaps best known for his position on climate change.
Inhofe’s skepticism toward the settled science of global warming makes him a strange ally for Google, which has nurtured a reputation as a socially conscious firm that is committed to the environment.
