    The Koch brothers are 73 and 77. Odds are that they will be dead in 15 to 20 years. They don't have to worry about the long-term problems caused by global warming.
    has two and David has three.  Don't they love their children?  Don't they want their children to have a livable world?

      They want their children to be just like themselves.

        that all that $$$$$$$$$$ they are going to leave their children will insulate those children from the effects of climate collapse.  

        Fat chance, Kochs.  You can't eat dollar bills, bonds, or gold.  You can't drink petroleum.  Your children may wind up trading ten pounds of diamonds for half a pound of moldy bread.
