Don't Be Fooled: Fossil Fools Fund Latest Climate Skeptic Petition
Using a screen-scraping process to analyze the data on this list, the folks over at Carbon Brief dug up some incriminating evidence about GWPF's list. Turns out nine of the ten most cited authors on that list (representing 186 of the 938 papers) have links to ExonMobil-funded organizations. The tenth has co-authored several papers with Exxon-funded contributors. Anyone familiar with these kinds of lists (More than 500 scientists dispute global warming' or 'more Than 1000 International Scientists Dissent Over Man-Made Global Warming Claims') will notice many familiar climate skeptic names that appear over and over again.
