The Koch brothers, Texan Industrialist Billionaire’s worth an estimated US$24 Billion each (They’ve each made an additional $1.5 Billion dollars since I first put this up) and said by Greenpeace to be THE “Climate Science Denial Kingpins” and so do I!
Charles and David Koch both back as you’ll see in this video, a number of so-called “Conservative” or “Libertarian” groups ALL closely associated with the “Tea Party”!
Koch Carbon, owned by the Koch brothers, sell a HIGH Sulphur COKE, un-useable in the steel manufacturing process due to the HIGH sulphur content.
The COKE comes from a eighty year old refinery owned by Marathon Petroleum who’s plant in Detroit processes 28,000 barrels a day already from the Canadian oil sands bitumen which is piling up faster than they can sell it!
They began to refine exports in Detroit, Michigan, directly from the Canadian oil sands of which the Canadians have 79.8 Million tons already stockpiled to be exported to the Koch brothers and Koch Carbon Inc., this has been in place since November 2012.
Even this waste product in the end gets thrown away and where else would you place a three storey high hill covering three football fields of a never ending”Toxic” waste? Detroit of course, right next to the river!
This can be see all the way over in Canada, and the residents of Windsor, Ontario are NOT impressed by this “intelligent” solution for this waste product which their Country produced!
As Third World Countries are lacking Environmental Laws and have Political leaders who are corrupt such as Mexico and China, they still burn this as a fuel, and here’s where Charles and David’s younger brother William steps in.
William Koch, Owner of Oxbow Corporation, one of the World’s largest dealers of petroleum coke is the “Prince of Climate Science Denial”.
Oxbow Corporation sells approximately 11 Million tons of this dirty “Fuel-grade” coke a year!
William Koch is getting a “free” waste product from across the river in Canada, refining the majority of it, then “on selling” some of it to poor countries for millions of dollars a year and contributing exponentially way beyond any one man’s normal “Carbon Footprint” and getting rewarded for doing that, Where the HELL is the logic in that one?
According to Kerry Satterwaite, a Petroleum Coke analyst at Roskill Information Services based in London “It is worse than a byproduct”, It’s a waste byproduct that is costly and inconvenient to store, but effectively costs NOTHING to produce” which is why the Koch’s are so keen to get the Corporate claws onto it!

Lorne Stockman, who just released a formal study into Petroleum Coke for the Environmental Group Oil Change International said “It’s really the dirtiest residue from the dirtiest oil on earth”
This video is based from the Henry Rollins letter to Ann Coulter video on Youtube, and if you’ve seen that you’ll see the similarities i’ve incorporated into this video directed towards two of the most Wealthy & Politically connected manipulators of Power, second only to the former Australian Media Baron Rupert Murdoch!
Along with the help of Jello Biafra, i set about explaining some Truths about Charles and David, and how they use their money to subvert Democracy in America today!
Their younger brother William is NOT far behind them in his “Prince of Climate Science Denial” role. #CharleGKoch #JamesDeWeaver
