Connor Gibson, May 3, 2016.

Connor Gibson is a former member of Greenpeace's Investigations team. He focused on polluting industries, their front groups, and PR operatives, particularly on the Koch Brothers.

Connor specialized in tracking those who professionally deny climate change science and obstruct policy solutions to global warming. His research frequently focused on money funneled from the billionaire Koch brothers to federal politicians and front groups running anti-environmental campaigns, like the American Legislative Exchange Council (ALEC), the Heartland Institute, and other influence peddlers in the "State Policy Network."

The overlap between the Koch network's lobbying activities and Koch-funded university programs eventually led Connor to co-found UnKoch My Campus, after repeated requests for assistance from student groups and concerned professors across the USA.

Connor's accountability research has appeared in the New York Times, LA Times, The Guardian, CNBC, Financial Times, Toronto Star, Forbes, CNN Money, Yahoo! News, Huffington Post, Politico, The Hill, National Journal, and Mother Jones.
