Abstract:

The Kochs have long been one of the largest players in the tar sands region of Alberta, Canada. This report connects the Kochs' 50 year history and large footprint in the Canadian tar sands to the current debate about the pipeline. Since the Kochs are big players, they will be big winners when the pipeline gets built. IFG crunched the numbers and found a frightening answer to why the Kochs have used their influence networks to push for fast-tracking of pipeline -- $100 billion in potential profits. Other findings in the report: The Kochs will earn 1 million times more than the average worker of the pipeline ; The Kochs alone own over 19 billion metric tons of carbon emissions in their tar sands holdings ; Think tanks funded by the Kochs have released nearly 1000 pro-KXL reports or statements ; Kochs have already made billions from insider trading and stand to do that again with tar sands ; Koch Industries has a history of violence against people and the environment ; The Koch Brothers seek to alter the public debate and control the policy debates in Washington and have spent $50 million dollars to that end.
