Koch Industries Secretly Funding Climate Denial

January 28, 2011

Koch Industries Report

Billionaire oilman David Koch likes to joke that Koch Industries is “the biggest company you’ve never heard of.” But the nearly $50 million that David Koch and his brother Charles have quietly funneled to climate-denial front groups that are working to delay policies and regulations aimed at stopping global warming is no joking matter.

Charles G. Koch and David H. Koch have a vested interest in delaying climate action: they’ve made billions from their ownership and control of Koch Industries, an oil corporation that is the second largest privately-held company in America (which also happens to have an especially poor environmental record). It’s time more people were aware of Charles and David Koch and just what they’re up to.

This report focuses on activities by Koch Industries and its affiliates, as well as the family—and company—controlled foundations which fund organizations that spread inaccurate and misleading information about climate science and clean energy policies. Included is research on the company and the Koch brothers, two of the top ten richest people in the United States.

    It’s refreshing to know how many people there are out there paying attention to the Koch brothers. I just wish more people cared.

    Thanks for stopping by. The whole purpose of my blog is about helping people become more aware and mindful. Spread the word about my blog. Networking at the ‘grassroots’ level is the key to creating awareness and helping people ‘to care’. A whole revolution is going on in the Middle East right now through social networking. We’ve had our revolution, now, let’s help our country progress through technological evolution.
