Koch brothers plan 'multimillion-dollar' drive to push tax cuts for themselves and their businesses

SNIPPET:

The Koch brothers have been largely sidelined in the news these days by, well, everything else, but that doesn't mean the pair of billionaire influence-buyers hasn't been busy. Donald Trump may have not been their first, second, or tenth preference to lead the conservative movement but they'll be dead in the cold, cold ground before they miss an opportunity to push through another round of tax cuts aimed specifically at benefiting themselves and their own businesses.

In a major jolt of support for President Trump, the powerful political network overseen by conservative billionaire Charles Koch is launching a multimillion-dollar campaign to drive Trump's tax plan through Congress.

What Did Exxon and CEO Rex Tillerson Know and What Did They Do About It?


Published on May 25, 2017

Rex Tillerson now acknowledges climate change science, but as CEO of Exxon Mobile did he do anything about it? The New York State Attorney General wants to know says Investigative journalist David Hasemeyer

Agelbert NOTE: What will eventually come out is that Exxon AND every other fossil fuel Industry greed ball out there figured out way back in 1977 (or as far back as 1968!) that, yes they were polluting the planet and would be eventually forced to stop doing that.

However, even as they came to that realization, the FACT that they had to change to a clean energy business model gave them heartburn when they looked hard at the energy generating  process where they could no longer use the air, land and sea as an open sewer  ("externalized" cost somebody else would have to pay).  They came to the conclusion that Renewable Energy would NEVER provide the gargantuan profits they were used to with their polluting product. Actually having to abide by biosphere math, along with making Renewable Energy technology devices that people could take home and get energy when people wanted, not when Big Oil wanted, was very upsetting to their inner fossil fueler psychopath.
   


WHY? BECAUSE they could NOT obtain a choke hold on the Renewable Energy spigot. It is also rather difficult to start wars and create price shock bonanzas from "scarcity" of wind or solar. Renewable Energy is bad for the WAR BUSINESS. War has always been GooD for the fossil fuel price shock "fun and games".

The bean counters in Big Oil realized that there is a huge distributed and democratized element to Renewable Energy. IOW, trying to centralize Renewable Energy would be like herding cats. So, they decided to DELAY the transition to Renewable Energy as long as possible through a malicious disinformation campaign specifically directed at doubting the science (i.e. discredit  climate scientists) that Exxon KNEW was accurate. 


To add criminal insult to mens rea injury, these fossil fuel crooks and liars PRETENDED to "embrace" SOME renewable energy (see British Petroleum HEAD FAKE to "Beyond Petroleum") while they were ACTUALLY doubling down on exploring for and exploiting new locations of, fossil fuels.


That's right, boys and girls. The fossil fuel corporations have spent FAR MORE MONEY THAN WAS NEEDED TO TOTALLY TRANSITION their business model to Renewable Energy in searching for increasingly difficult to obtain fossil fuels. The behavior of these fossil fuelers is not just irresponsible, it is criminal. 

In criminal law, KNOWING an action will cause severe bodily harm to humans AND DECIDING TO DO IT ANYWAY, even though you have the money to change to clean energy, is called MALICE AFORETHOUGHT (MENS REA). IOW, Exxon and their partners in pollution for profit crime have been committing FRAUD based on profit over people and planet since at least 1977!

For them to claim (the old "we are a corporation" TRICK) it was their "fiduciary duty" to "maximize profit" and stick with fossil fuels is like saying we have a "fiduciary duty" to rob a bank because it beats working for the money.

Prison is too good for those fossil fuel corporate bastards. BUT, it would be a good start;D


The Fossil Fuelers   DID THE Climate Trashing, human health depleting CRIME,   but since they have ALWAYS BEEN liars and conscience free crooks, they are trying to AVOID   DOING THE TIME or     PAYING THE FINE!     Don't let them get away with it! Pass it on!

A Personal Take on The Modern History of Iraq - RAI with Sabah Alnasseri (5/6)

On Reality Asserts Itself, Prof. Alnasseri says Trump's strategy is to use the war against ISIS as an excuse to build up US troop levels in Iraq to control the oil and create a pro-American government.

Paris Exit Was 'Victory Paid and Carried Out' by Republican Party for the Koch Brothers

The 22 Republican senators who sent a letter to President Donald Trump last week urging the United States' withdrawal from the Paris climate agreement received more than $10 million dollars in campaign funds from fossil fuel interests.

The two-page letter was signed by a number of Republican heavyweights from coal/gas/oil-rich states, including Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell of Kentucky, Jim Inhofe of Oklahoma and Ted Cruz of Texas.

The Guardian calculated that the 22 senators received a total of $10,694,284 from oil, gas and coal money in just five years. (See the breakdown below.)

However, that sum does not even come close to the amount of undisclosed funds coming from the deep pockets of Charles and David Koch's coal, oil and gas conglomerate, Koch Industries, and other outside groups.

As the Guardian explains:

"Visible donations to Republicans from those industries exceeded donations to Democrats in the 2016 election cycle by a ratio of 15-to-1, according to the Center for Responsive Politics. And that does not include so-called dark money passed from oil interests such as Koch industries to general slush funds to re-elect Republicans such as the Senate leadership fund.

"At least $90m in untraceable money has been funneled to Republican candidates from oil, gas and coal interests in the past three election cycles, according to Federal Election Commission disclosures analyzed by the Center for Responsive Politics."

Jeffrey Sachs, professor of economics and director of the Earth Institute at Columbia University, shared recently his views on Trump's climate walkout.

In an interview with Bloomberg Surveillance, Sachs referenced the senators' letter and specifically cast blame on the billionaire oil barons for pulling the strings of Republican party leaders such as McConnell and House Speaker Paul Ryan, who both supported exiting the Paris accord.

"This is the victory paid and carried out for 20 years by two people, David and Charles Koch," Sachs said. "They have bought and purchased the top of the Republican party. Trump is a tool in this."

Notably, most of the Republican signatories of the letter do not support the belief that human activity contributes to climate change.

During an appearance on MSNBC, Democratic Sen. Edward J. Markey of Massachusetts explained why he thinks his Republican colleagues do not believe in the science of climate change.

"This Conservative party in the United States is funded by the Koch brothers [and] it's funded by the coal industry," Markey said. "[They] insist that Scott Pruitt—the Attorney General of Oklahoma that actually sued the EPA 19 times on clean air, clean water, soot, mercury issues—becomes the head of the EPA in our country."


The 22 Republican signatories' funding from Big Oil, Gas and Coal in the past three election cycles (2012, 2014 and 2016):

James Inhofe, Oklahoma

Oil & gas: $465,950 + Coal: $63,600 = $529,550

Roy Blunt, Missouri

Oil & gas: $353,864 + Coal: $96,000 = $449,864

Roger Wicker, Mississippi

Oil & gas: $198,816 + Coal: $25,376 = $224,192

Michael Enzi, Wyoming

Oil & gas: $211,083 + Coal: $63,300 = $274,383

Oil & gas: $123,850 + Coal: $25,680 = $149,530

Thad Cochran, Mississippi

Oil & gas: $276,905 + Coal: $15,000 = $291,905

Mike Rounds, South Dakota

Oil & gas: $201,900 + Coal: none = $201,900

Rand Paul, Kentucky

Oil & gas: $170,215 + Coal: $82,571 = $252,786

John Boozman, Arkansas

Oil & gas: $147,930 + Coal: $2,000 = $149,930

Richard Shelby, Alabama

Oil & gas: $60,150 + $2,500 = $62,650

Luther Strange, Alabama (Appointed in 2017, running in 2017 special election)

Paris Climate Accords Withdrawal Bought And Paid For By Koch Brothers & Friends

June 5th, 2017 by Steve Hanley

Remember those 22 Senators who wrote an impassioned letter to alleged president Trump recently, urging him to withdraw from the Paris climate accords? According to The Guardian, that group has received a total of $10 million from the Koch Brothers and other fossil fuel interests over the past 5 years.

Utility CEOs Try to Rob Shareholders of Rights to Express Climate Concerns

Sunday, June 25, 2017

By David Pomerantz, Energy and Policy Institute | News Analysis


SNIPPET:

Group Flush With Fossil Fuel  and Utility CEOs    Led Call for Language

A group of CEOs which often lobbies for policies that support the fossil fuel industry, the Business Roundtable, has led the effort to insert the language restricting shareholders' rights. The group sent a letter to Trump economic advisor Gary Cohn advocating for the changes. The letter also called for delaying the EPA's rules to protect people from harmful ozone pollution, called for an overhaul of the Clean Power Plan, and called for the complete reversal of the Waters of the US rule to prevent pollution of streams, rivers and lakes. Those are all positions that other utility industry trade groups have fought, while individual utilities have sought to avoid the publicity of attacking popular anti-pollution rules.

http://www.truth-out.org/news/item/41047-utility-ceos-try-to-rob-shareholders-of-rights-to-express-climate-concerns

Agelbert NOTE: Why do the fossil fuelers never grow tired of avoiding responsibility and accepting their liability? Why do they keep doubling down on fossil fuels instead of transitioning rapidly to Renewable Energy (they have had the Capital to do that, in less than a decade, for at least 25 years!)?

SEE BELOW:


But the basis of their 'greed is IT' loyalty to polluting practices suicidal rationale is found in their fascist ideology/religion:

Environmental devastation, ruined economy and deteriorating health afflict Bodo community years after Shell oil spill.

Bodo Village, Nigeria - In 2008 and 2009, a 55-year-old pipeline owned by Shell ruptured twice, throwing up 600,000 barrels, according to UK court claims, of crude oil into the surrounding creeks of the Niger Delta.


In 2015, after many years of battles with campaigners, Shell announced it would pay out $83.2m in compensation for the spill. This was split up among the community. Most families received about 600,000 naira ($3,000). Yet after more than eight years that have passed, the community is still waiting desperately for the cleanup efforts promised to them. The creeks and shores of this once thriving fishing community remain decimated by the oil damage.




In January 2017, a British court blocked a lawsuit brought against the Anglo-Dutch Shell company by the devastated Nigerian communities, saying it must be filed in Nigeria. 

On January 26, 2017, as reported by the Associated Press, Kay Holtzmann, the former director of the project funded by Shell to clean up the oil spills, wrote a letter saying there are "astonishingly high" levels of pollution affecting the Nigerian community.


The letter was addressed to the chairperson of the Bodo Mediation Initiative, Inemo Samiama,  and outlined the potential health effect of the contamination on the Bodo community. "Although the locals are accustomed to their environment they are exposed to hazards and especially negative long-term effects on their health are unpredictable. The results dictate the need for a health screening of the Bodo people," Holtzmann stated.

Joyful Paango, a resident in Bodo village, says she and her family have struggled with their health since the spill. She is concerned for her six younger siblings, who have been directly affected by the contamination. "I pray that God will take me and my family from Bodo one day."

AZ Investigation Reveals Shadier Side    of Anti-Solar Utilities    

It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a single utility in possession of an anti-solar regulatory board, must be doing something shady.

Over the last several years, the Arizona Public Service Company (APS), the largest power provider in the state, has tried thwarting rooftop solar by getting utility-friendly candidates elected to the Arizona Corporation Commission, which regulates the state’s utilities. Now, APS is reportedly being investigated by the FBI for its political spending.

In 2014, APS allegedly funded a political nonprofit that supported the candidacy of two utility-friendly Republican candidates for the regulatory commission. For most of its long history, APS steered clear of politics. But, in recent years, APS helped turn a bipartisan regulatory commission into a panel of anti-solar Republicans through targeted political spending.

The investigation kicked off after the former chairman of the regulatory commission, Gary Pierce, was indicted for allegedly raising the rates for a water and sewer company in exchange for payments to his wife. The FBI probe of Pierce led to an inquiry into APS, which had allegedly tried to influence Pierce by contributing to his son’s campaign for Arizona secretary of state.

The allegations of wrongdoing suggest the lengths to which embattled utilities are willing to go to protect their interests. It’s not that utilities oppose solar power, per se — many are investing in large-scale solar projects, but many utilities are opposed to customers generating their own electricity and selling it to the grid. Think of APS like a grocer who doesn’t want home gardeners selling vegetables in the town square — except this grocer enjoys a government-sanctioned monopoly.

The FBI investigation will likely be lengthy, and may not result in anything. But if it does, it could be game over for the APS monopoly.

Agelbert NOTE: The mens rea purpose of fossil fuel Industry mendacious propaganda is to produce DOUBT about the danger their polluting product represents to the biosphere (see below).



Exxon did know about climate change since the 70s — and it lied, knowingly   

LAST UPDATED ON AUGUST 28TH, 2017 AT 11:39 AM BY MIHAI ANDREI

SNIPPET:

The world’s largest company knew what was going on for a long time.

It should surprise no one that ExxonMobil, the world’s largest oil company, does a lot of science. Many scientists will tell you that Exxon and other oil companies do some of the best geology studies out there — and that makes a lot of sense. With billions in profit every year and a direct interest in understanding both local and planetary processes, Exxon’s research and development is booming.

So one can only wonder then, why hasn’t Exxon addressed climate change earlier? It’s virtually impossible to study earth science and fossil fuels for so long and not come across anything, yet Exxon has refuted climate change for many years, saying that it’s not happening and investing millions and millions into denying it.


Well, more and more evidence is lining up that Exxon did know about climate change, they just lied.

Quote
On the question of whether ExxonMobil misled non-scientific audiences about climate science, our analysis supports the conclusion that it did,” a team from Harvard University writes in the study.

“ExxonMobil contributed quietly to the science and loudly to raising doubts about it.”

A conflict of interests

Several pieces of evidence have emerged, all indicating that Exxon purposefully kept climate change science under the lid. It all peaked in 2015 when an email from inside the company revealed that Exxon had data pertaining to climate change as early as 1981 – seven years before it became a public issue.

DENIER ROUNDUP August 28, 2017



50 Ways to Censor Science

There are a lot of ways that former presidents have allegedly censored science or the public in the past. Usually, though, they spread it out a little so as not to be obvious. Not Trump. You can explore the different shades of censorship during his eight-month tenure using just examples from last week.

Last Sunday, we learned that Trump disbanded an advisory group charged with helping policymakers and the private sector incorporate the findings of the National Climate Assessment. The group pledged to keep meeting without official White House blessing, giving us hope that the public won’t be cut off from vital climate info. This is the third scientific advisory board to be disbanded by the Trump administration.
https://www.eenews.net/climatewire/2017/08/22/stories/1060059025

The next day, it was reported that Trump halted funding for a study on the health impacts of mountaintop removal mining, killing an attempt to understand the threats facing those coal miners he loves so much.
https://insideclimatenews.org/news/21082017/mountaintop-mining-coal-health-study-scrapped-trump

On Wednesday, the Bay Journal announced that it was losing its EPA funding, putting the future of the 27 year old Chesapeake Bay-focused paper in jeopardy. Pruitt has made assurances that the EPA still cares about cleaning up the Bay, but apparently it doesn’t care about keeping the public informed. Also on Wednesday, it was reported that the National Institute of Health scrubbed the term “climate change” from its site.
https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2017/aug/23/us-government-agency-climate-change-references-removed-again

Then on Thursday came a triple-whammy. As explained by Vox, Energy Secretary Rick Perry’s grid study showed how political editing can censor out inconvenient facts, and how politicians can ignore the findings and say whatever they want about the study.
https://www.vox.com/energy-and-environment/2017/8/24/16195620/rick-perry-grid-study-nothingburger

Meanwhile, Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke’s “sham review” of national monuments showed how easy this administration finds censoring the public. There were literally millions of comments that were opposed to the administration’s plan of shrinking or eliminating monuments, but Zinke wrote them off as part of a “well-organized national campaign.” 
Instead of listening to the public, Zinke chose to do what he wanted in the first place, and used a handful of pro-industry comments as justification for shrinking protected lands.

Thursday’s third example came in a simple tweet: “This is what censorship looks like”. It looks like that in order to meet the president’s budget language restrictions, some scientists are being asked to remove the words “climate change” from the abstracts of grant proposals. 
https://twitter.com/doctorwhy/status/900897050484670465

Then Friday, in addition to Vice publishing the FOIA’d details about the climate scientists who weren’t allowed to meet with Mark Zuckerberg, a small blurb in Politico’s Morning Energy reported that EPA leadership has decided employees can’t use social media except for a specific business purpose.

We’d put an ask out on Facebook and Twitter about how staff members feel about this, but apparently only Trump is allowed to use social media while at work.
