Koch Brothers: Senate Democrats Can Stick It Where The Sun Dont Shine (VIDEO)


Three senate Democrats, Barbara Boxer, Edward Markey and Sheldon Whitehouse are in a standoff with the Koch Brothers currently, who are refusing to discuss their involvement with funding scientific studies studies that always somehow seem to say that climate change isnt real, while the rest of the scientific world agrees that it is one of the biggest long-term problems we face. The goal is simple, said Senator Markey:

Corporate interests shouldnt be able to secretly peddle the best junk science that money can buy.

The senators launched their probe shortly after climate researcher Willie Soon was accused of accepting more than $1.2 million from oil, gas and coal companies in exchange for his research questioning the role of greenhouse gases in climate change.

aaaaaa


But, The Kochs think Congress can stick it where the sun dont shine. They say they have 64 billion reasons why it is none of Congress business. And, each one is for every dollar they have.

Mark Holden, the general counsel for the 5th and 6th richest guys in the world had this to say about the Senators inquiry:

Your letter touches on matters that implicate the First Amendment. I am sure you recognize Kochs right to participate in the debate of important public policy issues and its right of free association.

This is not just about participating in public debate, though. Nor is it about even using their massive amounts of money to gain more attention in the free press. What they are doing is deceptive, and intentionally trying to make climate change seem like a hoax, by having so-called independent organizations and scientists claim that the science doesnt support climate change.

Koch, which owns subsidiaries in industries like oil refining, agricultural supply and paper products, was one of 100 companies that Markey, Boxer and Whitehouse are investigating.

The senators are calling for these thinktanks that throw out these studies as evidence, to show who is funding them.

The letter they sent was just a first step asking for the information. The next step will be making them do it.

But, the Koch Brothers are remaining mum, for now. And, theyre betting the republican puppets they put in office are going to bail them out. After all, they are spending $1 billion alone, just for the 2016 Presidential election. This is an insane amount of money to influence elections for just one family.
