The Kochs

Who are they?

David and Charles Koch are two of the wealthiest individuals in the United States of America which means they are two of the wealthiest people in the world.

They each are reportedly worth $50 billion. It is estimated their net worth increases by $11 million, per day owing to the policies enacted by government, which favor their business interests.

They each own 42 percent of Koch Industries which was founded by their father, Fred C. Koch, a chemical engineer who revolutionized the process of refinement of gasoline as we know it.

Koch produces everything from asphalt, to natural gas, to gasoline, to plastics, as well as products used widely in the automobile industry. Is it any wonder they are opposed to solar energy, mass transportation/high speed rail, and responsible climate science?

Is it any wonder they contribute abundantly to candidates who are climate change deniers? Is it any wonder your republican controlled Florida legislature votes for things like, keeping the list of toxic chemicals in fracking water secret?

This shocking documentary by Robert Greenwald, gives an overview of their activities. It illustrates how they influence government, and how their policies at times are murderous to families who find themselves literally poisoned by their activities.
