The political philosophy of Charles Koch

Andrew Koppelman

The ongoing climate catastrophe was brought about by idealism. It is commonly blamed on the greed of the petroleum industry, but the most effective source of climate denial has been a single determined libertarian who thought that he was creating a better world.

To understand what has happened, you need to understand this man’s idealism: where he got it from, the moral vision that animates it, and how, in his hands, it has been betrayed and corrupted.
