Don't Let the Koch Brothers Buy Our Elections
LOS ANGELES, Oct. 2, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Presidential candidate Mitt Romney may find it easy to mock President Obama about climate change, but Filmmaker Craig Rosebraugh along with executive producer Daryl Hannah reveal how the subject is nothing to joke about. The searing, award-winning documentary, "Greedy Lying Bastards" relentlessly uncovers a trail of environmental destruction, illness and death.

With wildfires in the west and "brown-outs" in the east, climate change is no longer a prediction for the future, but a startling reality of today.

A few paragraphs farther into the "Koch brothers" article in the link above, it says this: "A far different story about climate change is told by the residents of Kivalina, a small Alaskan island above the Arctic Circle. ... As one tribal administrator notes: "The debate is over, we are dealing with the realities of climate change."

Yes, indeed. And one of those realities was a recent (9/21) major news item regarding one of the top three global warming nuisance lawsuits: "9th Circuit Court rules against Kivalina -- The 9th Circuit Court of Appeals on Friday upheld a U.S. District Court ruling that Kivalina didn't have standing to sue oil, coal and power companies." http://finance.yahoo.com/news/9th-circuit-court-rules-against-010209907.html
