Microsoft Funds Koch’s Climate denying Tea Party Conference

I’m not certain that Bill Gates gave his personal okay on this…

Think Progress

Microsoft Corporation, which argues that climate pollution requires a “comprehensive and global response,” is sponsoring the Koch brothers’ Tea Party convention taking place in Washington, DC. Microsoft is a “gold sponsor” of the Americans For Prosperity Foundation’s fifth annual Defending The American Dream Summit, cheek and jowl with top climate denial front groups like the Heartland Institute, the American Legislative Exchange Council, and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.

Speakers at the conference include climate deniers Herman Cain, Mitt Romney, Rep. Marsha Blackburn (R-TN), Rep. Mike Pompeo (R-KS), Ken Cuccinelli, Ann McElhinney, Chris Horner, Myron Ebell, and Carly Fiorina. Their prominent involvement was captured in a photograph by Slate.com reporter Dave Wiegel.

  1. Don’t we hear conservatives claim that Gates is a liberal?

  2. I agree with you Kay, that Gates would not give the okay.

    Gates and his wife have done more for the children and the schools around the world, than any of these other clowns.
