For those interested in Sightline’s work on the influence of fossil fuel money in Northwest politics, you may enjoy listening to this 45-minute interview I did recently on KBOO, a community radio station in Portland. Host Barbara Bernstein and I explored some of the recent media reporting on the activities of billionaire brothers David and Charles Koch, as well as Sightline’s research into Tesoro, key state electoral campaigns, and overall coal, oil, and gas spending in Washington.

Much of Sightline’s work on fossil fuel money has relied on diligent research from our friend, Nick Abraham. His insightful work will also be appearing at, an important new resource to keep an eye on.
