Big Apple Coffee Party asks AMNH to remove David Koch from board

David Koch is a trustee of many important New York cultural institutions. The Big Apple Coffee Party is particularly concerned about his presence on the board of the American Museum of Natural History (AMNH). The Natural History Museum plays an important role educating the public about environmental issues including global warming while Koch Industries is a major polluter and fossil fuel distributor. David Koch is using his huge personal wealth to subvert the efforts of scientists to educate the public about climate change.

New York City provides substantial funding to AMNH -- nearly $30 million in 2013 -- in addition to indirect support. Accordingly, the mayor and other city officials serve on the museum board. The Big Apple Coffee Party has sent a letter calling on our representatives to seek the removal of David Koch from the board of AMNH to end this egregious conflict of interest.
