Something to remember when you read that Global Warming isn't happening...

Scientists and economists have been offered $10,000 each by a lobby group funded by one of the world's largest oil companies to undermine a major climate change report due to be published today.

Letters sent by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), an ExxonMobil-funded thinktank with close links to the Bush administration, offered the payments for articles that emphasise the shortcomings of a report from the UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC).

Travel expenses and additional payments were also offered.


The article is here.

Amazing, that does not surprise me. Then you got wing-nuts like Sykes and McBride repeating the lies that human-induced green house gases are not contributing factors to global warming.

What do some people need to wake up? A polar bear swimming in their pool?
Milw. Fox news had a bit on about how global warming could be good for WI........yeah, they did. I guess it's sort of like "God Bless America - and no where else"
