Robert F. Kennedy Jr. Once Called For Koch Industries And ExxonMobil To Be Put To ‘Corporate Death’

  • Democratic presidential candidate Robert F. Kennedy Jr., an environmental and anti-vaccine activist, once called for corporations and conservative groups that dispute climate change to be handed the “death penalty.”
  • Kennedy, a controversial environmental lawyer whose résumé includes work for the Natural Resources Defense Council and waterway preservation group Waterkeeper Alliance, argued in a 2014 blog post that big oil companies, including Koch Industries and ExxonMobil, “should be given the death penalty.”
  • The post, titled, “Jailing Climate Deniers,” was a response to claims made at the time that Kennedy said, “all climate deniers should be jailed.”
