Actually, it is a political issue.
It is you who did the demeaning personal attack -- own it.
The Kochs are about oil and lobbying and defeating clean energy. That concerns our subject, global climate change and what we place into the air and onto the earth. Oil and gas exploration and its products tend to dirty the environment.
We can't operate in a vacuum and close our eyes to powerful people who want to put down clean energy that may help defeat global climate change. And let's face it, it is a political argument. The right wing generally tends to debunk science while the left tends to embrace it. People want to defend their self-interests, i.e. the Koch Brothers, because they do not want competition even if that competition is good for the country.
I think too many of us want to grab onto a piece of propaganda and embrace it. People want simple answers when there are no simple answers.
Why not embrace common sense?
Is it better to spew crap into the environment, to defeat clean energy alternatives, or to seek a balance based on a rational discussion of science and policy ... and reduce our footprint. It's a balance.
