KochBros funding climate denial had nothing to do with Arctic Ocean Oil

Did you know that:

Koch companies have been in the petroleum business since 1940, growing our refining capacity more than 80-fold. Today these companies engage in petroleum refining, chemicals and base oil production, crude oil supply, and wholesale marketing of fuels, base oils, petrochemicals, asphalt and other products.

“Flint Hills Resources LLC, through its subsidiaries, operate refineries in Alaska (North Pole), Minnesota (Rosemount) and Texas (Corpus Christi), with a combined crude oil processing capacity of more than 800,000 barrels per day.

Koch Alaska Pipeline Company, LLC owns an approximate 3 percent interest in the Trans Alaska Pipeline System. Another Koch company has a 28 percent interest in Colonial Pipeline Company, owner and operator of the world’s largest-volume refined products pipeline.”

 Koch Industries

Did you know that:

The Heartland Institute (is/was) the world’s most prominent think-tank promoting scepticism about man-made climate change…”

The Economist

Did you know that:

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).

GreenPeace

Did you know that:

“The inner workings of a libertarian thinktank (Heartland) working to discredit the established science on climate change have been exposed by a leak of confidential documents detailing its strategy and fundraising networks.”

The Guardian

Did you know that:

The Koch-funded Heartland Institute was also connected to the Koch-funded American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC).

Sourcewatch

Did you know that:

The Arctic is warming at an alarming rate – twice as fast as the rest of the planet – and according to a new report, those changes will be a key driver of geopolitics in the coming years.

As the rapidly melting ice unlocks commercial opportunities in shipping, tourism and oil and gas extraction…”

Did you know all that? I didn’t know all that.

 I’m sure the Koch brothers didn’t know all that when they funded climate denial.

They probably never thought of the fact that it would open the Arctic Ocean to oil and gas exploration.

 I’m sure none of that ever occurred to them. 

Aren’t you?
