Money can’t buy you love, but it might buy you science:
The Guardian online reports that the American Enterprise Institute, funded by a generous grant from Exxon and from the Mobil Oil Corporation, has begun offering $10,000 to scientists who are willing to write essays that call into question the findings on a recently released UN report on global warming.
Letters sent by the American Enterprise Institute (AEI), an ExxonMobil-funded thinktank with close links to the Bush administration, offered the payments for articles that emphasise the shortcomings of a report from the UN’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC). Travel expenses and additional payments were also offered.
yep 10k… for your scientific opinion… if it matches the one they want.
