My tweet best summed up how I feel about this story:

The DNC just wanted to make sure they remain fully committed to the “green” movement:
The Democratic National Committee passed a resolution Friday afternoon that activists say effectively reverses a ban on fossil fuel company donations.
The resolution introduced by DNC Chair Tom Perez states that the party “support[s] fossil fuel workers” and will accept donations from “employers’ political action committees.” It was approved by a 30-2 vote just two months after the committee adopted another resolution prohibiting donations from fossil fuel companies by a unanimous vote.
The new resolution nods to “forward-looking employers” that are “powering America’s all-of-the-above energy economy and moving us towards a future fueled by clean and low-emissions energy technology, from renewables to carbon capture and storage to advanced nuclear technology.”
Just watch now, in an Al Gore-ian twist, the Democrats will spin this to their angry base by pledging to spend the fossil fuel company donations to support candidates who will warn the world that fossil fuels are destroying the earth.
