Harry Reid Is Opposed to Climate Change, Just Monumentally Confused About the Cause! by The Elephant's Child

HarryReid 3

Harry Reid needs help. He gets a little more loony every day. He announced yesterday that Charles and David Koch are “one of the main causes of climate change.”

“While the Koch brothers admit to not being experts on the matter, these billionaire oil tycoons are certainly experts at contributing to climate change. That’s what they do very well. They are one of the main causes of this. Not a cause, one of the main causes” Reid said.

He called them “multizillionaires” and claimed they are the richest men in the world.   (They’re not by any measure) Far left liberal billionaire Tom Steyer challenged the brothers to a public debate on climate change. Steyer’s successful hedge fund Farallon Capital Management made a lot of money investing in coal mines in Asia and Australia, but he opposes the Keystone XL pipeline and has promised $100 million, $50 million of his own and $50 million raised from others, to the Democrats if they promote the cause of Climate Change and environmentalism.

It is interesting to consider just why Democrats are so interested in demonizing the very philanthropic Koch brothers. The Kochs are Libertarians and donate to causes that endorse low taxes, light regulation and free markets. Hardly a radical agenda. They also donate heavily to cancer research, and the hospitals that are so engaged. They also create a lot of jobs, 60,000 in the U.S. and 100,000 worldwide.

Steyer is a member of the shadowy dark money club— the Democracy Alliance— dues are around $30,000, and they support Democratic causes and Democrat politicians.Their attention has reportedly turned from support for Democrat causes to simply winning elections. Not a lot of room here to attack the Koch brothers, nor anything to attack them for except that they disagree. But that is cause to be attacked these days. You are not allowed to disagree with Democrats.

Koch brothers support political climate change in a positive way.

Comment by Carl D'Agostino

Is Harry Reid only after the Koch brothers in an attempt to keep them from donating to Republicans? I really don’t get his animosity. SEIU turned out protest a newly donated Cancer Clinic given by the Koch brothers. Just weird.

No, Reid is after the Koch brothers because he needs a villain (“We have always been at war with Eastasia.”). He has no positive accomplishments to decorate his tenure as Majority Leader. He serves mainly to obstruct (and notice the number of times he’s been outmaneuvered by McConnell… he can’t even obstruct that well).
