Enviros Urge WGBH To Drop Koch from Board over Climate Misinformation

"An environmental activist group wants Boston's public television and radio affiliate to bump billionaire conservative donor David Koch from its board of trustees over his position on climate change."

"Forecast the Facts argues that Koch's 'anti-science track record' should disqualify him from any role at the company that produces the award-winning science series 'Nova' and other notable public affairs programming.

It points to the millions of dollars that David Koch and his brother Charles have spent -- from their considerable fortune made in the oil and gas industry -- to support groups that question the validity of the science showing that greenhouse gases produced by burning fossil fuels are driving climate change. In the words of Forecast the Facts, the brothers have been 'proactively seeking to misinform Americans and undermine accurate scientific reporting.'"
