You want to know who’s the big mover and shaker behind the Tea Party, the anti-Obama crusade, and the climate-change-denial movement? Then you’ve got to read this piece by the New Yorker’s Jane Mayer, one of the world’s best journalists. It’s about Charles and David Koch, billionaire libertarians who own Koch Industries, a little-known Wichita-based oil giant that has funded and secretly directed the Tea Party Movement, while successfully portraying President Obama as a “socialist.” The Koch brothers also have spent untold millions attempting to cast doubt on the role of humans in causing global warming.
