9的前10个气候变化否认者与埃克森美孚

In a world where accusations like this fly by like pigeons in the park, it was about time someone but some work into research before ****** a claim such as this one。 This is not some unsubstantiated assertion, or some crazy scientist’;s statement –; this is backed up by numbers。 Let’;s look at the matter in depth。

Climate change and gas giants

Exxon Mobil is not only the world’;s largest private oil company, but also one of the largest publicly traded companies in the world, having been ranked either #1 or #2 for the past 5 years。 They are also (of course) denying climate change, and there has been a rumour going on that they have been paying or offering some kind of reward to researchers who also deny climate change。 But until now this was only an unconfirmed rumour。

A recent analysis conducted by Carbon Brief investigated no less than 900 published *****s, all of which cast doubts on climate change, or even speak against it。 After concluding this investigation, they found that 9 out of 10 of the most prolific ones had some sort of connection with Exxon Mobil。 You can find a link to these *****s at the Global Warming Policy Foundation

The results showed that out of the 938 *****s cited, 186 of them were written by only ten men, and foremost among them was Dr Sherwood B Idso, who personally authored 67 of them。 Idso is the president of the Center for the Study of Carbon Dioxide and Global Change, an ExxonMobil funded think tank。 The second most prolific was Dr Patrick J Michaels, a senior fellow at the Cato Institute, who receives roughly 40% of his funding from the oil industry。

This goes in parallel with the ‘;work’; of the Koch industries; even though you probably haven’;t heard of them, Koch industries is the second largest privately held company in the US, and in the past 50 years, they have invested more than 50。000。000 dollars in spreading doubts about climate change, according to Greenpeace

An old tactic that sadly, keeps getting good results

The thing is, you don’;t have to convince people that climate change isn’;t happening –; all you have to do is cast some doubt on that, and people will no longer be certain, and this is a strategy that has been successfully tested by tobacco companies, almost at the same level, and coffee companies, at a much lower level。 Basically, you keep the public confused about the idea, and a confused public is much, much better than a public who is against you。
