Coal baron Corbin J. Robertson, Jr. is head of Natural Resource Partners and Quintana Minerals. The grandson and heir of Texas oilman Hugh Roy Cullen, he "is said to own more coal through his various ventures than anyone outside of the U.S. government."[1]

Robertson is listed as director of a pair of front groups promoting climate inaction, 501(c)(3) Plants Need CO2 and 501(c)(4)CO2 Is Green (with associated media campaign); and his name appears on the list of attendees[2] of the June 2010 Koch strategy group meeting in Aspen, CO.

Robertson was acknowledged at the privately held Koch seminar in June 2011 in Vail, Colorado for donating at least $1 million to Koch-related causes. [3]

Today, Corby Robertson -- Cullen's grandson -- is said to own more coal through his various ventures than anyone outside of the U.S. government (see "Cullen heir nabs huge lumps of coal," Dec. 8, 2006). Besides his role with Quintana Energy Partners, Robertson also serves as president of Quintana Minerals Corp., CEO and chairman of publicly traded Natural Resource Partners LP, and chairman of Quintana Maritime Ltd., a Nasdaq-traded bulk shipping company.”
