Exxon Still Funding Climate Change Deniers


This video is called The Exxon Files; Friends of the Earth targets climate change approach.

From Greenpeace:

So. The day of reckoning has come – when we get to find out just how much of the climate change denial industry ExxonMobil (aka Esso) is still paying for.

This is the company which, apparently, has been “misunderstood” on global warming and has said it has dropped its funding of the deniers.

The ExxonSecrets people have gone through the documents, and found a clear answer: last year Exxon spent $2.1 million last year on 41 groups who are leading the climate sceptic industry.

While the company has been forced to drop the hottest potato of them all, the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI) and another particularly vocal denier, Steve “Junk Science” Milloy, the rest of them are still on the payroll.

Like who? The Heartland Institute, the Heritage Foundation [see also here], the George C Marshall Institute, the American Enterprise Institute… all the groups who’ve been at the heart of the climate change denial industry for more than a decade.

It is a bit too much honour for those paid junk science prostitutes to call them ‘sceptics’.

As scepticism and thorough investigation of scientific hypotheses are never wrong.

However, to be in denial of scientific research results for reasons of financial gain and/or of religious dogma, is something else.

Creationists should also not be called “evolution sceptics”, but evolution denialists.

Exxon knew of climate change in 1981, email says – but it funded deniers for 27 more years: here.
