Bill McKibben and the Rockerfeller family money, made from Standard Oil.
McKibben rocking an Earth First! T Shirt on Rockerfeller money.
With particular regard to AGW and the fossil fuel industry, McKibben said in a 2010 New Republic article, “Those companies have spent some small part of their wealth in recent years to underwrite climate change denialism: Jane Mayer’s excellent New Yorker piece on the Koch brothers is just the latest and best of a string of such exposés dating back to Ross Gelbspan’s 1997 book The Heat Is On.”
Small little itsy-bitsy teeny problem …………. there is no ‘string’ of independently corroborating exposés, they all collectively source their info for the corruption allegation to….. Ross Gelbspan. Who happens not to be the “Pulitzer prize winner” he’s widely credited as being, and who never bothers to show us what evidence he has to indict skeptic climate scientists of receiving industry money in exchange for creating false fabricated science papers.
No need to trust me on this, ANYBODY can peel back the layers of the accusation repetition and see where it originates and what actual ‘evidence’ it has to justify its existence.
