Excerpt: "Over the years, fossil fuel company executives have funneled tens of millions of dollars into this disinformation campaign. The top funder was ExxonMobil for a long time. But the company was overtaken years ago by Koch Industries, run by billionaires Charles and David Koch, who spent more than $48.5 million from 1997 to 2010 to FUND DISINFORMATION. From 2005 to 2008, the Kochs outspent Exxon-Mobil well over 2-to-1 in funding the climate denial machine." - (end excerpt)
The fact that Big Oil has been funding the climate denial machine since day one is a fact that can no longer be ignored. The "debate" itself is an intentional ploy to cloud reality, obfuscating our perception and keep us distracted in a heated and futile argument while our health and planet is being destroyed right in front of us.
BP Oil has been performing their own geoengineering (CDR - carbon dioxide removal) for years, and that alone is a strong indicator that the disinformation we are being fed in the mainstream that anthropogenic global warming is a "hoax", is indeed just another way for the corporate cabal that puts profit above our health and planetary sustainability, to continue polluting our atmosphere at the expense of LIFE and the future.
What if we refuse to fall for such blatant disinformation tactics, ditch the "debate" altogether, unite and stick to creating a better world by working together to end all corporate activity that's slowly poisoning us and destroying our planet? Would that not be better than falling for Big Oil's divisive disinformation strategy?
Consider that Big Oil's funding of the denial think tank calling climate change a "hoax" and/or "natural phenomenon" is not only a way to confuse us and shift responsibility to keep on polluting for profit, but it's also the equivalent of "Monsanto saves the world", and "vaccines save lives", don't we know better than that by now?
The "hoax" is the disinformation itself along with the political manipulations of exploiting the truth of the issue for bogus carbon taxes, adding insult to injury. NOT COOL.
