While Exxon has acknowledged that climate change is real, it continues to fund groups that use junk science to could the consensus on climate change.
According to the report, Exxon provided $2.1 million in 2006 to 41 “think” tanks and associations that actively sow doubt about the realities of climate change. Since 1998, ExxonMobil has spent a staggering $23 million on this climate disinformation…
The report out today proves what DSBlog and many others have long suspected: Exxon is happy to spin this issue, but not act in good faith. The company says that it believes humans are causing climate change, but still doesn’t want you to believe it.
You wold think that with Exxon’s record profits they could spend some money diversifying their business instead of using spin to continue business as usual.
