What the Koch Brothers have in store for the Pacific Northwest
Billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch, two of the richest people in the world, bankroll a network of organizations whose agenda is to gain indisputable control of the nation's political process. Their money supports efforts to undermine everything from social security to the environment. In the Pacific Northwest they work in tandem with large corporations like the oil giant Tesoro, to rewrite statutes and regulations that protect the region from unfettered petrochemical development. On this episode of Locus Focus we talk with Eric de Place, policy director with the Sightline Institute in Seattle, about the Koch Brothers' designs on the Northwest and what communities must do to stop them.
