    ExxonMobil tried to mislead, scientists say

    January 4, 2007, Boston Globe/Associated Press

    ExxonMobil Corp. gave $16 million to 43 ideological groups between 1998 and 2005 in an effort to mislead the public by discrediting the science behind global warming, the Union of Concerned Scientists asserted yesterday. The report by the advocacy group mirrors similar claims by Britain’s leading scientific academy. Last September, The Royal Society wrote the oil company asking it to halt support for groups that “misrepresented the science of climate change.” Alden Meyer, the Union of Concerned Scientists’ strategy and policy director, said in a teleconference that ExxonMobil based its tactics on those of tobacco companies, spreading uncertainty by misrepresenting peer-reviewed scientific studies or emphasizing only selected facts. James McCarthy, a professor at Harvard University, said the company has sought to “create the illusion of a vigorous debate” about global warming.

  2. The relentless destruction of Iraq is a tragedy of our time and will continue to ruin the world as long as it is allowed to continue. The most troubling outcome of this United States war is the INDIFFERENCE that is being displayed by our government and our nations people. By not acting, we are slowly loosing sight of our chance to salvage our relationship in the middle east, and are being increasingly forsaken by those that lead us.

  3. NEWS FLASH: This website is killing neutral Iraqi civilians. You have just helped the same militants who kill the people that you all want to protect. this is called 4th dimensional warfare. Something the United states government sucks at and Arab militants are very good at with the help of western European and American people. Every time you post pictures that are pro militant you are giving props to the Arab militant factions to blend in with innocent Iraqis and continue to do such attacks that lead to Coalition attacks on the Arab militants that are mixed in with the innocent Iraqis causing death on all three of them. Way to go people of peace or should I say war supporters for the Muslim extremist side.

  4. Hi bob weaver, I notice that you do not go into any of the points raised in this long blog post on the Iraq war which cost over a million dead Iraqi civilians since Bush invaded in 2003. Instead you prefer to react hystericallly and ad hominem to cartoons. Touché, apparently. However, I will cut you some slack, as you are probably very upset now that your favourite Sarah Palin will not become president of the USA, by verdict of the US electorate. It is better for you to go playing, along with Sarah Palin in a Flintstone movie, an imaginary alternative reality, in which humans and dinosaurs co/exist. Sarah Palin believes in such a `reality`. I prefer the real reality, also on the Iraq war.
