Default Why all snowboarders should hate the Koch Brothers

Koch Industries: Still Fueling Climate Denial (2011 Update)
Billionaire oilman David Koch used to joke that Koch Industries was "the biggest company you've never heard of." Now the shroud of secrecy has thankfully been lifted, revealing the $55 million that he and his brother Charles have quietly funneled to climate-denial front groups that are working to delay policies and regulations aimed at stopping global warming.

I'm pretty sure no one likes those guys.

Even if you DON'T believe in global warming, why would you not do everything you could to make our earth cleaner and healthier in the long run? Makes no sense to me.

It's like saying, "I'm doing 60 miles and hour in my car now and I'm still alive. Logically, that means there is no proof that going faster is dangerous and I can continue to go faster without any consequence. If at some point I should crash, I will slow down. But not before I have absolute proof that going faster is dangerous."

I don't agree with you on a whole lot politically (but probably more than either of us realize if we were to have some beers), but I'm with you on this one.

Needs 15+ years of experience in destroying the environment, on a personal level.
