Funding deniers, still, in 2007?
A little while back Exxon was trying to backpedal on its global warming shenanigans, claiming it had been misunderstood and that it wasn’t funding those nasty denialist groups any more.
In what is sure to come as a huge shock to … nobody, that turned out to be bullsh*t. According to a new report from Greenpeace, Exxon is still actively funding 14 groups for "climate change work," and you can bet that work isn’t devoted to fine-tuning a cap-and-trade system.
Today, Rep. Brad Miller sent Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson a letter (PDF) chastising him for this ongoing nonsense. Good luck getting through.
