Oil conglomerate ExxonMobil paid interest groups to "mislead the public" on climate concerns, a science advocacy organization alleges.

"ExxonMobil Corp. gave $16 million to 43 ideological groups between 1998 and 2005 in a coordinated effort to mislead the public by discrediting the science behind global warming," says the Union of Concerned Scientists (UCS), according to an Associated Press article.

The oil giant "has manufactured uncertainty about the human causes of global warming just as tobacco companies denied their product caused lung cancer," a spokesman with the watchdog group said during a telephone news conference announcing the assertions, Reuters reports

I have told everyone, over and over, that this is what the big corporations are doing!! They are paying people off to pedal their fallacious "science!!"
