The Inconvenient Truth about Robert C. Balling

on

In a recent post in The Citizen.com, Dr. Robert C. Balling, director of the$8 million invested in skeptic movement Office of Climatology at Arizona State University, launches pseudo-scientific attack on Al Gore’s move, An Inconvenient Truth.

As with a clutch of other industry-funded academics who quibble over climate change, Dr. Balling is happy to use his Ph.D. and his title to suggest expertise and to imply scientific objectivity. But readers might be better able to judge the quality of his input if they knew that he has been the eager recipient of funding from such philanthropic organizations as ExxonMobil, the British Coal Corporation, Cyprus Minerals and OPEC. Per the link above, Sourcewatch lists his take from these sources at a little over $400,000 in the last 10 years.
