With the news is dominated today by 'Super Tuesday' in the US I saw this interesting graphic yesterday on which candidate gets the most money from oil companies. Who do you think, for instance, gets the most cash from climate trashing Exxon? Barack Obama.

The graphic from OilChange International definitely looks like it was inspired by our own Exxon Secrets website.

The oil info is interesting but after looking again at Grist's candidates comparison on climate, (notice how they all support dirty coal) it would be interesting to see which one the coal industry or coal dependant energy utilities are funding. Know a good source of this info? Post it in the comments.
