Is there an industry that we absolutely need to back the climate bill if we want it passed?

    The Oil industry is currently leading the charge against the bill. Setting a limit on carbon emissions would of course be bad for oil refineries in particular; literally putting a severe amount of control over exactly what they are supposed to produce.

    Should the bill pass, by 2030, refined oil production would drop 17% in the U.S., requiring us to depend on foreign countries for 19.4% of oil.

    It seems impossible that the oil industry would ever be sold on any sort of climate change bill. The fuel they are producing is the kind that we are so desperately seeking an alternative to right now, so it makes sense that they are at the completely opposite end of the spectrum, but it IS the #1 industry and obstacle against the bill today.
