Not so strange bedfellows afterall

“Inhofe’s assault on the scientific community is not a difference in climate policy; it’s a strategy designed to promote dysfunction and paralysis; to destroy the reputation of scientists and the legitimacy of their institutions; and to undermine our ability to find common ground.”

Google’s Own Scientists Ask Google To Stop Funding Climate Deniers.

Google has an 900 acre property that houses one of their huge data centers near Pryor, Oklahoma. It is owned by their shadow corporation Myall LLC (a Limited Liability Corporation, a common way to avoid taxes and liability as well as to prevent disclosures required from publicly traded companies). Power usage estimates vary but appear to be at least 50 megawatts and required the Grand River Dam Authority to spend $3.5 million on a new substation and other improvements of which Google was only on the hook for $2 million.

Jim Inhofe is an Oklahoma Senator known for a voting record that is strongly pro-corporation, pro-gas, oil and energy companies, anti-labor, anti-environment, anti-regulation. One can imagine what similar interests they might have.
