Exxon Confess

I found the article Who is behind the climate change deniers, courtesy of Gavin at Peak Energy.

The good news is that Exxon (known as Mobil in Australia) have admitted funding groups of climate change deniers. After pressure from shareholders, they have agreed to cease giving millions to the groups that "misrepresent the science of climate change" in "an effort to distort public discussion".

The bad news is that for over a decade, this funding has created false doubt in the mind of the public and the politicians, and prevented actions that would have helped the human race.
