Green Tea

Thanks to John McNight for bringing this to my attention:

tea party studyFrom the story:

A new academic study confirms that front groups with longstanding ties to the tobacco industry and the billionaire Koch brothers planned the formation of the Tea Party movement more than a decade before it exploded onto the U.S. political scene.

Far from a genuine grassroots uprising, this astroturf effort was curated by wealthy industrialists years in advance. Many of the anti-science operatives who defended cigarettes are currently deploying their tobacco-inspired playbook internationally to evade accountability for the fossil fuel industry’s role in driving climate disruption.

Who could have guessed that?

  1. The most evil Koch Brothers want to save their billions at the expense of the middle class. The a-holes and their group even told senators to vote against the aid package for the Northeast United States after the hurricane. They are a despicable pair.
