I'm so shocked that a Koch baked group would be so crooked. This really reflects badly on how Kochs look.

The Kochs sure were born under the correct surname.

Is a Koch-back like a dick-head?

Climate denial should be treated as libel.

Deny all you want, but lake Mead is on track to hit bottom within 36 months.
Or.
Sooner.
Once that water is gone it's not coming back.

Or mental illness.
Because it's impossible to pretend that global climate change isn't happening.
I mean even salt lake in Utah is drying up.
While I full expect conservatives to stand there in the middle of a dry lake bed dodging storms of sand and salt while screaming that everything is fine, it's really not gonna be very convincing.

That there are employees around them NOT immediately beating them to death is sad.

Oh they know. They just lie. Money ALWAYS comes first. When she falls apart they deny responsibility and refuse to be held accountable.

I'd argue that fraud may be a more appropriate classification.

After the misinformation campaigns regarding lead paint, leaded gasoline, and tobacco, you'd think that we'd be better at identifying such professional campaigns and stopping the people behind them.  But here we are, same tactics, same results.

"And that brings us to the final point, which is that we don't connect the dots to the present. And those dots are very much there. Look at the black-white wage and wealth gaps. They're both larger now than they were when King gave that speech. And our housing and education systems, even in liberal cities like New York and L.A., are still shamefully segregated. And if you don't teach history properly, all you see is those effects and not the causes."

They did defend via denial concerning Russian interference though.  And they're not even making any effort to police their own people away from Russia and Putin, so I'm going to assume they're all into it.

The Ukraine War has demonstrated that Putin isn't the political mastermind that pundits allege he is. He just plays one on TV.

And too many people, particularly here, see Russian subterfuge less as a scandal and more as a bludgeon to ward away all criticism and accountability.

It fools you to think your attacks on progressives are ever legitimate. Especially now with the new fictitious assertion by you (which goes beyond the simplistic bullshait "horseshoe theory") that Progressives and the Right want the same exact things. You need to go into a mental institution to treat that level of delusion.

We knew oil and coal were destroying the environment in the 1950's.  Because the article is three years old only means that we've lost three years of time arguing bout this.

Climate change isn't coming.  It's here. According to the WHO, the world is desertifying so fast that unless we change something drastic, we have less than 60 harvests left on this earth...and then all the topsoil will be gone.
