This April 2017 video from the USA says about itself:
Jane Mayer talks about how money has influenced the political conversation on climate change.
Translated from Dutch NOS radio today:
The Dutch climate skeptic
‘Climate skeptic’ is a wrong expression. As skepticism, doubting and checking in principle everything, is a healthy attitude. While climate denialism is pseudoscience. Like neonazi Holocaust denialism, for which ‘Holocaust skepticism’ is a wrong expression.
Frits Böttcher, once co-founder of the Club of Rome, received more than one million guilders from Shell and other multinational corporations between 1989 and 1998. The goal was: to spread doubt about climate change and the role of humans in it. …
According to Follow the Money, Böttcher hoped to provide climate policy opponents with ammunition. His role in the environmental think tank Club of Rome suited him well. …
The Bovag [organisation of Dutch car dealers] also admits that it sponsored Böttcher.
SHELL FUNDED ANTI-CLIMATE LOBBYING LAST YEAR Royal Dutch Shell vowed last September to reach net-zero carbon pollution in its business by 2050. The vague goal seemed to become more realistic when the corporation announced earlier this month that its crude oil production had peaked in 2019 and would likely never increase again. Yet the oil giant has continued to fund a network of lobbying groups that fight policies to curb planet-heating emissions and rein in new drilling. [HuffPost]
