Climate Change Deniers Funded By Exxon-Mobil
Posted by Phoenix Woman on December 9, 2009
In news that will surprise absolutely no one who’s been paying attention, the “ClimateGate” people have been found to have extensive ties to Exxon-Mobil:
The story details the nexus between the NIPCC, the Heartland Institute (recipient of $676,500 from Exxon-Mobil over the last 10 years), the Cato Institute ($125,000 from Exxon-Mobil in the last decade) and multiple other right-wing front groups.
In addition, one of the key pieces in the hacked ClimateGate emails refers to a study reported in scientific journals that was revealed to be underwritten by the American Petroleum Institute, yet another Exxon-Mobil front group…
Oh, and by the way: The sunspot gambit, a favorite of the deniers, has been debunked. Solar cycles aren’t the cause of global warming.
