But how will the Kochs get Obama and the US government to turn against US consumers and their own green policies and promises? We'll get to that next week.
I've been tracking the Kochs for 18 years, first as a private investigator on a case of oil missing from a Native American Indian reservation.
One thing from that case sticks with me even today. The trail of missing oil led to Charles Koch himself, who (according to a secret recording), told a co-conspirator why he did it. The billionaire said,
"I want my fair share. And that's ALL OF IT."
And "all of it" now includes a pipeline filled with hot, cheap oil.
