The Koch brothers. Trust Fund Babies From Hell.

You know, it’s like, why? So they have vested interests in the fossil-fuel industry. They are still well-positioned to take control of the transition to green energy and make billions from THAT. It doesn’t have to hurt them that much…if they’d get involved in the process, it can work to their benefit (and everyone else’s). Why are they instead so bound and determined to be as evil as possible?

Perhaps there really is a Guild of Calamitous Intent, and the Koch brothers are charter members?

I believe it.

I realize they figure they’ll profit like crazy charging a premium for their fossil fuel products while civilization collapses around them, but then what? How is it people can be so rich and yet so absymally f*cking short-sighted and stupid? And so utterly lacking in imagination? If I had their money I would be salivating at the potential profits from transitioning to sustainable energy, at the opportunity to spearhead the research and development and position myself at the front of the pack.

It could be simple laziness. What you describe requires hard work and taking risk. Business as usual means they can collect the big bucks for staying out of the way of people who actually work for a living.

They’re probably the corporate equivalent of the Oil Ticks.

See what else The Donors Trust has been up to:

In a November 15, 2012 article in The Washington Spectator,” Lou Dubose, the writer, introduces us to the crusader who wants to undo many of the civil rights laws: “Edward Blum’s campaign to dismantle statues and case law that provide advantages to minority groups began in 1992. After Blum, who is white and ran as a Republican, failed to unseat a black Democratic congressman, he filed his first lawsuit.” Blum is the behind-the-scene backer of the Fisher case. Although what Blum does is legal, one wonders why he believes hundred of years of preferential treatment favoring European American is acceptable and need not be changed when we witness the results of years of injustice in education every day. Dubose notes that “Blum confirmed that his litigation is funded by Donors Trust and that the names of contributors to the fundraising collective are not available to the public.” Dubose does mention that there might be some connection with the Koch brothers via the Donors Trust.

Charming. So a handful of billionaires who happen to be racist pigs can secretly fund the blight of racism to their heart’s content.

I fail to see why the billionaire is entitled to purchase vast influence in the US political system. Some things should not be for sale.

They own trillions of dollars in fossil fuel reserves, and humans have an awesome capacity for rationalization when it suits their desires.
