Climate Sanctions Against U.S.?
Lord Nicholas Stern of Australia has warned that European and Far Eastern nations are likely to seek sanctions against U.S. exports by 2020 unless the U.S. takes more vigorous actions to cut its CO2 emissions. Per capita, the US emits more than twice as much CO2 as the European Union and almost three times as much as China.
Koch Industries - Worst of the Worst
Koch Industries won 2010's Snake Oil Award for Public Deception, primarily for its huge financial support of California's Proposition 23, a ballot initiative that would have killed the growth of renewable energy in California.
Koch Industries is run by Charles and David Koch, multi-billionaires who vigorously oppose clean energy. It is the leading funder of climate change denial groups.
Koch Industries owns Georgia-Pacific, whose brands include Brawny, Sparkle, Angel Soft, Soft 'n Gentle, Quilted Northern and Dixie. Sounds like an opportunity to speak with your pocketbook.
Tell Koch how you feel here.
