A new report by BankTrack finds that the world’s top banks, while claiming to be committed to fighting global warming pollution, have pumped $230 billion into the coal industry since 2005. “Low-carbon economy” JP Morgan Chase has financed $22,250,000,000 worth of coal mining and coal-powered electricity projects since 2005.
