Commentary: Koch brothers are spending big to gut California's climate change law

David and Charles Koch, billionaire oil men from Kansas, can't stop dabbling in California politics. Koch Industries' wholly owned subsidiary Flint Hills Resources, based in Kansas, tossed in $1 million to help win passage of Proposition 23, the initiative to roll back California's 2006 law to reduce greenhouse gases. It makes perfect sense. Koch Industries is deep into fossil fuel. To the extent the Kochs can bring about their regulation-less vision, they and their corporation would become richer still.
