Ninety percent of climate denying scientists in bed with big oil
Many of us have heard the arguments...environmentalists are sounding a false alarm about global warning. There's nothing to be concerned about...it's just the cyclical nature of the earth, etc. Silly greenies, making a huge fuss over nothing.
Carbonbrief.org has analyzed the authors of many of these supposedly scientific papers posted to "900 peer-reviewed papers supporting man-made global warming alarm." They found that nine out of the ten authors who have written many of the "peer-reviewed" papers have links to organizations funded by Exxon Mobil, and the tenth author has coauthored papers with Exxon-linked contributors. These 10 authors have written 186 of the papers on the site.
