Leaked memo proves Exxon funding of bad climate research

Thanks Mark for this...

   A leaked memo from a 1998 meeting at the American Petroleum Institute, in which Exxon (which hadnt yet merged with Mobil) was a participant, describes a strategy of providing logistical and moral suport to climate change dissenters, thereby raising questions about and undercutting the prevailing scientific wisdom. And thats just what ExxonMobil has done. Lavish grants have supported a sort of alternative intellectual universe of global warming skeptics. NYTimes syndicated columnist Paul Krugman.

SNSers have known this for years. Nice to have the details, though. And more shame for Lee Raymond, ex-CEO.
