      One is that Donors Trust has become the funnel for money to deny climate change, which is why you see money from the Koch boys and Exxon tapering off as money coming from Donors Trust was taking off. Two is that Donors Trust is really pumping a great deal of money, particularly after the Dems took control of Congress in 2006. If most of that money comes from the Koch boys and Barre Seid, it truly remarkable.

      The interesting thing is that it is really the tip of the iceberg in what we know about dark money funding of the disinformation campaign.

      Be radical in your compassion.
