UPDATED: "Denier" alert at ABC

How the media hate "big oil". After yesterday's Quote of the Day, the ABC gleefully trumpets that Exxon Mobil are funding "deniers":
The world's biggest oil company, Exxon Mobil, is reported to be funding the work of climate change deniers.

Company records show Exxon Mobil handed over hundreds of thousands of dollars to lobby groups that question the facts of global warming.

The [London School of Economics'] research institute on climate change and the environment says both organisations have published misleading and inaccurate information about climate change.

Well they would say that, wouldn't they? Anything that doesn't meekly submit to the consensus is "misleading and inaccurate" according to climate alarmists. And they also fail to mention that "big oil" hands over millions of dollars to green groups as well, but hey, that's OK, because it's all fine, dandy and politically correct. And they also fail to mention that the alarmist industry has been funded to the tune of about $50 billion by Western governments since 1990. How does that stack up next to a bunch of loose change for "deniers"?

Climate hypocrisy.

Read it here.

UPDATE: Andrew Bolt exposes the hypocrisy here.

  • I'm a climate-realist...I never got any money from Exxon...

  • Most large corporations are extremely reluctant to take a political stance of any sort. I would be extremely surprised if the oil companies were funding sceptics. Their business is not going to be severely affected by ill thought through CO2 curbs since the supply of oil is falling and reduced supply usually means rising prices and profits.

  • But the real story is Exxon pisses money all over the climate botherers. Not in K'$ but in M'$.

    Advances in technology are likely to make carbon capture and storage less expensive over time. ExxonMobil is investing more than $100 million in a test facility to develop one such technology.

    Controlled Freeze Zone (CFZ) is a single-step cryogenic separation process for removing CO2 and other undesirable elements from raw natural gas. It will be deployed at a commercial demonstration plant in Wyoming that is scheduled to begin operations in late 2009.

    CFZ is expected to be a lower-cost process to develop gas high in impurities, such as carbon dioxide, and reinject the impurities. That is important because our world needs additional supplies of clean-burning natural gas.

    But by making CO2 capture from natural gas more affordable, this new CFZ technology may also make CCS a more practical option in the effort to address the risks of climate change.



    Contributing to research and the public policy discussion on climate change
    Over the past thirty years, we have supported major climate research projects at a number of major institutions. Currently we are supporting the scientific, economic, and technology research at Battelle Pacific Northwest Laboratory, Charles River Associates, the International Energy Agency’s Greenhouse Gas Research & Development Programme, the Georgia Institute of Technology, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Stanford University, and the University of Texas, among others.

    We contribute to an array of public policy organizations that research and promote discussion on climate change and other domestic and international issues, including the Brookings Institution, the American Enterprise Institute, the Council on Foreign Relations, Resources for the Future, The Center for Clean Air Policy, and the Center for Strategic and International Studies. We regularly review the groups we fund to ensure they are consistently and constructively contributing to advancing meaningful understanding and solutions to issues of concern, including climate change. In recent years, we have discontinued contributions to several public policy research groups whose position on climate change diverted attention from the important discussion on how the world will secure the energy required for economic growth in an environmentally responsible manner



    And why shouldn't they? We're the ones paying for it. You can't get around without paying whaatever outrageous pricetag the gaia worshipers pump a gallon up to.

    They'd push you or I into a volcano if Gore told them it would help.
