The Smithsonian’s Koch Problem


The Smithsonian’s Koch Problem

Rachel Rye Butler

Two of our most celebrated natural history museums have a serious Koch problem.

David Koch sits on the board and is a major donor for both the Smithsonian and the American Museum of Natural History.

You read that right– this is the same David Koch of the Koch brothers, Kansas billionaires who since 1997 have sent $79 million to groups denying the science of climate change.
