Scientists and economists have been offered $10,000 each by a lobby group funded by one of the world's largest oil companies to undermine a major climate change report due to be published today.
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).
Yup - the greedy bastards at $75,000 a minute Exxon are a big factor behind this. Of course they couldn't have got this far with out help from Bush himself. Since the rest of the world actually takes global warming more seriously than we do, this makes another great reason for them to hate us. Thats ok. Once we are all dead because this planet can not sustain life anymore, these idiots will be nothing either. They can't take the money with them and I hope there is really a hell as people like this will be very welcomed.
