American businessman Robert E Murray has died aged 80. Not a particularly known name outside Ohio, he was apparently a climate change denialist who, despite making millions off mining, spent millions convincing politicians to try and block safety measures for workers in mines. After the Cranda Canyon Mine collapse killed six miners working for his company, Murray tried to blame it on a category 4 earthquake that existed solely in his mine. This led to an attempted lawsuit against comic broadcaster John Oliver, which failed but brought the man enough attention to get a qualifying obit. He also had out standing sexual harassment charges against him. All of which suggests The B-Team can celebrate a well earned unique hit!
