Kennedy in a "Huff" about Exxon Mischief

on

It’s nice to see the story of ExxonMobil’s climate change misinformation campaign being reported in so prominent as place as the blog Huffington Post, and nice to see so credible a source as Robert F. Kennedy Jr.

After checking out how successful Exxon has been at disregarding the interests of Northwest Coast fishers or, say, Americans in general, have a look at Kennedy’s link to the recent advertorial by the Washington Legal Foundation. The WLF is a group of top-dollar attorney’s who appear to care not a wit for “the habitats of plant and insect species” – or for the larger human habitat if their attitude towar climate change is any evidence. WLF Chair Daniel Popeo dismisses “environmentalists who claim that burning any fossil fuel contributes to global warming.”

That’s a group that now includes ExxonMobil, unless the WLF knows something we don’t.
