Al Jazeera released a new mini-documentary yesterday on the Koch Brothers -- the multi-billionare energy tycoons who have spent over $50 million on campaigns to tear down the science of climate change and clean energy policy.

The documentary features a lengthy interview with our colleague Lee Fang, an investigative reporter with Think Progress, who has played a major role in uncovering the strong 'web of influence' of the Koch Brothers on state and federal politicians. The film touches on the Koch role in everything from health care to energy policy. It's worth the watch. (Note: much of the energy and climate stuff is in the second half, after about 15 minutes.)

This is exactly why 'the other 99%' of Americans are protesting in the streets.
