"Corrupt" is a point of view, though. What's the fundamental difference between oil companies lobbying for what they want, and environmental groups lobbying for their preferences?

Government isn't really the problem here, it's the symptom. Until you get a large part of the population to change their ideas of what they want, you're not going to get anywhere.
