How to convey the terrifying machine that is the Koch brothers in fun size.

Yeah, yeah.  I know the Koch brothers are bad guys.  I know they’re oil guys.  I know they’re bajillionaires.

But, like a lot of us, do I really understand all the what, where, why and hows?  Admittedly, I do not. And that’s exactly how the Koch brothers want it.  Ignorance, after all, is bliss. Unfortunately bliss, in this case, is theirs alone.

So I did a little research on them.  In a nutshell, here is what I learned:  every single person on this planet needs to understand exactly what this two headed monster is doing to every single one of us every single day – and we need to understand now.

It’s common knowledge that in this fast paced, digital world we are more likely to read or engage in something that is bite size and easy to digest.  We prefer bullet points to paragraphs, the synopsis to the full story.  We want to be briefed.  And that brief had better be brief.

That being said, what better way to grab the world’s attention and help get the word out on these guys than with a quick, clever blurb paired with a single, yet powerful, image?

Which leaves me in the conundrum  of how to convey that terrifying machine that is the Koch brothers in fun size.  A conundrum in which I must remain as it is simply not possible to cut to the chase on these guys… their reach is that vast, their targets that permeated, their influence that prolific.

So in order to have a rudimentary understanding of who is ruining everything for everybody and how they are doing it you are going to have to watch this extremely insightful and equal parts frightening FULL LENGTH (that means 55 minutes!) documentary.  And this is just the tip of the iceberg.

So belly up and hit the play button because if ignorance is bliss, knowledge is power.  And we’re gonna need a whole lot of that if we’re gonna have a fighting chance against these two.

Do not underestimate the power of Facebook. Or friends…

Even Mark Zuckerman needs friends.  A few years back, Greenpeace and a whole lot of Mark’s friends asked the Facebook founder, via this rather adorable video, to stop his plans to power his Oregon data center with coal.

20 months later he did just that.  And today Facebook continues to do the right thing…

Its’ new data center will run on 100 percent wind energy.  Be a friend…read the whole article here. If you liked this video, check out a whole bunch of others you’ll also like over here.
