Totalitarians Seek to Silence a Tiny Voice

Quoting JoNova -
Climate Money - Big Government outspends Big Oil:
“Much media attention has relentlessly focused on the influence of ‘Big Oil’—but the numbers don’t add up. Exxon Mobil is still vilified for giving around 23 million dollars, spread over roughly ten years, to skeptics of the enhanced greenhouse effect. It amounts to about $2 million a year, compared to the US government input of well over $2 billion a year…

The vitriol against Exxon reached fever pitch in 2005-2008. Environmental groups urged a boycott of Exxon for its views on Global Warming. It was labeled An Enemy of the Planet. James Hansen called for CEOs of fossil energy companies to be ‘tried for high crimes against humanity and nature.’ In the next breath he mentioned Exxon.”

Note: the following quote from the above link appears to be incorrect:
“Apparently Exxon was heavily ‘distorting the debate’ with a mere 0.8% of what the US government spent on the climate industry each year at the time.”
I calculate 0.1%. I have posted a comment to that effect on the link. Maybe it will be corrected.

And, no, I have never accepted any money from ExxonMobil.
