Science for Sale!

The UN's Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) recently came out with a report that can be summarized with four words: "Al Gore's onto something"

Not that the whole world has been saying this for years or anything but apparently this report is a big deal.

So it is not surprising coming from the country that refused to abide by the Kyoto protocol, that the right-wing response from those tied to the administration is, "We'll pay scientists ass-loads of money to say this report is crap".

The American Enterprise Institute (AEI), which is a think tank funded by none other than ExxonMobil sent out letters to scientists offering 10,000 dollars to those who "thoughtfully explore the limitations of climate model outputs."

I wonder what other scientific facts can be countered when enough cash is shelled out?

Well at least we know that Exxon/Mobil's record profits are going use. Notice, I did not say good use.
