THIS WEEK'S NEW PROGRAM: THE MACHINERY OF CLIMATE DENIAL:
This is the most revealing study of climate denial I have ever heard.
Like a bull-dog with spreadsheets, Dr. Mashey tracks the links between a small band of climate change deniers.
One famous speaker's "Institute" consists of one person with a mail-box. Others get big money through a scandalous layer of supposedly non-profit "institutes" which act as PR agents for big oil, coal, and electric companies. Including Lord Moncton!
Mashey names names as he connects the Koch Brothers, Richard Mellon Scaife, Exxon to the paid-for scientists, and unqualified "experts" who spin climate doubt in the public mind.
They use the same PR companies, same tactics, in some case the same people, as the tobacco lobby.
An expose with teeth, backed with a deep database created by a computer industry executive, former Chief Scientist for super-computer maker Silicon Graphics, and worked with Bell Labs.
