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. (Guardian)
Het rapport van het IPCC is hier te lezen. Saillant detail, de AEI is de denktank waar Ayaan Hirshi Ali haar nieuwe toekomst begon.
