A Bi-partisan group of Kansas House legislators took a brave stand yesterday against powerful influences supported and funded by the Koch brothers. Those billionaire men, natives of Kansas, had hoped to kill backing for renewable energy sources in the state. The Kochs, whose beyond-vast fortune was made from oil, including the dirtiest tar sands oil (see earlier post: Koch Brothers = Tar Sands Oil), want no competition from renewable sources of energy such as solar and wind power. It’s certainly a refreshing change of pace to hear of legislators being brave enough and morally strong enough to stand up to such big money interests. Let’s hope it’s not their last stand!
