Scientists paid to trash climate study


Much attention at the end of last week on the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report which predicted dire consequences of heat waves, cyclones, droughts and rising seas if the world failed to act quickly.

You can read reports on the panel’s findings here, here and here.

So then we get reports that the Exxon Mobil funded think tank the American Enterprise Institute was bribing scientists to say it isn’t so. The news report is from The Guardian.

On top of that, we also get have the news
of President Bush signing an order appointing an apparatchik flunkey
into every agency to ensure it toes the official line. Business groups
have welcomed the directive but environmentalists have attacked it,
saying it gives the White House too much control.
