The Very Best 'Climate Change Denial' That Money Can Buy!

Who is keeping the debate on global warming alive? The Fifth Estate has won awards for The Denial Machine, a documentary that exposes how a huge amount of money is being expended in an attempt to murky public perception concerning the science of climate change.

The documentary shows how fossil fuel corporations have kept the global warming debate alive long after most scientists believed that global warming was real and had potentially catastrophic consequences. It shows that companies such as Exxon Mobil are working with top public relations firms and using many of the same tactics and personnel as those employed by Phillip Morris and RJ Reynolds to dispute the cigarette-cancer link in the 1990s. Exxon Mobil sought out those willing to question the science behind climate change, providing funding for some of them, their organizations and their studies.
The Denial Machine

The next time you see active climate change denial, or yet another of the endless, mindless 'Y2Kyoto' type blog posting, ask the person responsible how much they are receiving from either a petroleum producers association or other front.

Here in the US, the right-wing vogue is now to feign concern, but do nothing.

Tom our local right wingers are demonstrating serious mental disorder on the topic here in Canada. The money that the petroleum producers are giving to certain 'righty' bloggers MUST be substantial considering both the quantity of denial posts we are seeing and the ferociousness of their attacks on concerned citizens.
