Ronald Bailey on Climate Change Science and Corporate Donations


Balance sheets in the balance?

Last week, the environmental lobbying group the Union of Concerned Scientists issued its new report, A Climate of Corporate Control. According to the UCS, its analysis reveals that some corporations are climate-change science hypocrites, claiming to support the climate-change "consensus" in some venues but not in others. One of the nefarious ways in which corporate climate hypocrites allegedly operate is to support think tanks that question the climate consensus, thus sowing confusion across the land. Reason Science Correspondent Ronald Bailey investigates the case of alleged climate hypocrite General Electric, which the UCS report accuses of providing lavish funds to questionable think tanks, including the Reason Foundation. How much money are we talking about? The plot thickens.
