Koch Brothers war on climate science documentary

The following is a press release by The Real News Network about their new documentary on the Koch brothers’ war on climate science.

The Real News Network’s 30-minute documentary, “The Doubt Machine: Inside the Koch Brothers’ War on Climate Science”, reveals how Big Oil–particularly, the billionaire oil tycoons Charles and David Koch–have used their vast wealth and clout to ensure the American political system takes no action on climate change.

Narrated by two-time Oscar winning actor and screenwriter Emma Thompson and directed by award-winning investigative journalist Bruce Livesey, “The Doubt Machine” explores how the oil industry discovered that burning fossil fuels would cause global warming as far back as the 1970s–but buried this information. Instead, the industry embarked on a decades-long campaign to foster doubt in the public mind about whether climate change was happening or not.
