Tight fisted oil barons.

After announcing record profits ExxonMobil seem a bit tight fisted in their offer to scientists and economists to undermine the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change fourth assessment report (IPCC).

In a very cynical move the American Enterprise Institute (AEI) which is an ExxonMobil-funded think tank has offered payment for papers ($10,000 each) that emphasise the shortcomings of a report. You’d think with profits of $75,000 a minute and what they have at stake they’d have dug a bit deeper than that!
