Exxon Knew Everything There Was to Know About Climate Change by the Mid-1980s — and Denied It | BillMoyers.com

Does this all sound familiar? Big money supports the use of banks of lawyers and bought and paid for politicians to bludgeon scientists and activists warning of a huge problem that industry wishes to deny? Remember the Tobacco industry, now proven not only to have known that its product was dangerous to the public health, but at the same time enhancing that same product to make it more addictive? Well, this is even worse than that.

The corporate executives who engage in this behavior and the dishonest, thoroughly co-opted, faux scientists who are the front men for this disinformation campaign, are morally no better than pimps. This has to stop so we can begin to take real action. The climate is at a tipping point. Waiting for another decade or two will push us past a point of no return. We need these people investigated and the truth to be broadcast to the public at every opportunity.

And thanks to their willingness to sucker the world, the world’s most vulnerable are now in great danger.
