Greenpeace vs. Koch Industries

Greenpeace has found that U.S. oil company Koch Industries and the Koch heirs who largely own the nation's second-largest privately owned corporation donated nearly $48 million “to climate opposition groups between 1997-2008.” The Greenpeace report also finds that the company spent $5.7 million in donations to political campaigns and $37 million “on direct lobbying to support fossil fuels.”



From Screwed:
"Hartmann speaks with the straight talking clarity and brilliance of a modern day Tom Paine as he exposes the intentional and systematic destruction of America’s middle class by an alliance of political con artists and outlines a program to restore it. This is Hartmann at his best. Essential reading for those interested in restoring the institution that made America the envy of the world."
David C. Korten, author of The Great Turning and When Corporations Rule the World
From Unequal Protection, 2nd Edition:
"Hartmann combines a remarkable piece of historical research with a brilliant literary style to tell the grand story of corporate corruption and its consequences for society with the force and readability of a great novel."
David C. Korten, author of When Corporations Rule the World and Agenda for A New Economy
From The Thom Hartmann Reader:
"Thom Hartmann seeks out interesting subjects from such disparate outposts of curiosity that you have to wonder whether or not he uncovered them or they selected him."
