The Koch Brothers alone are estimated to spend $390 million in targeted races this year. In fact, reports in March already had them at the $30 million mark. Their goal? Protect dirty deniers who will, in turn, follow a right-wing agenda and protect the Koch's polluting interests.
These billionaires -- profligate spenders on their pet causes -- shamefully funnel money to fight pollution controls, prop up the climate-denial movement and ease the path of big corporations to
spew more toxins, fatten their bank accounts and put the planet's future at risk.
We beat the Koch brothers and their friends in 2012, but we can't let our guard down. If we want to build a cleaner, more sustainable energy future for our children, we have to roll up our sleeves and get to work.
