Lately I have noticed a lot of members here that are skeptic of the Global warming scare. Skepticism is a very good thing, but what is it that sets
off our alarm? Is it conflicting points of view? Contradictions with what we have already learned? My skeptic alarm goes off when I think "who
When it comes to reading reports on global warming you have to think, who benefits from this report? Do I benefit? Does the author benefit? Does the
person or organization funding the author benefit.
Who benefits and what is the benefit we should be all asking.
In this thread I will be listing scientists and organizations who stand to benefit from polluting the planet. I will post their claims on how the
Earth is fine or how we can't do anything about it. I will also list who is funding them.
The Cato Institute www.cato.org...
Claims: The Cato Institute claims that the increase in greenhouse gases was overestimated. If the world follows the Kyoto Protocol we will only be
able to decrease global warming 0.07°C by 2005.
Who benefits: The Cato Institute gets it money from Exxon Mobil and others in the fossil fuel industry. The Cato Institute has a budget of about $14
million a year, derived from 15,000 contributors. At least $75,000 has been given by Exxon. Other investors include:Microsoft Corp- oration, Viacom
International,Express, Chase Manhattan Bank, Chemical Bank,Citicorp/Citibank,Shell Oil Company and Tenneco Gas,Castle Rock Foundation (reformed Coors
Foundation),as well as the American Petroleum Institute.
Steven Milloy www.junkscience.com...
Claims: The Kyoto Protocol will have little effect. Pretty much claims anything Harming the environment is bunk.
hilip Morris funded the creation of JunkScience.com. Milloy was registered as a lobbyist with the EOP Group in 1999, with the American
Petroleum Institute and FMC Corp listed as clients. He is also an adjunct scholar at the Cato Institute(see above) and a commentator on Fox News.
Thanks for those who took the time to read this. There is much, much more to come in future posts.
Note: All of these links are active at the time of this posting. I have noticed that some of the related links I have posted else where on ATS are
now down. If more of these sites go down I will have to speculate that someone or some group has taken them down.
