Climate Deniers Exposed: Top Scientist Got Funding from ExxonMobil, Koch Brothers, Big Coal

A new investigation exposes how one of the top scientists involved in
denying climate change has failed to disclose his extensive funding from
the fossil fuel industry. Dr. Wei-Hock Soon of the Harvard-Smithsonian
Center for Astrophysics has downplayed global warming and rejected human

greenhouse gases from pollution. Climate denialists — including
Republican Senator James Inhofe, chair of the Senate Environment and
Public Works Committee — frequently cite Soon’s work to reject concrete
action.

By Rejecting Recount, Is Michigan Covering Up 75,000 Ballots Never Counted?
