Oil Companies Also Involved With Massive Fraud and Deception

In any discussion about global warming, you'd expect the primary opposition debating against such undeniable truths would be the major oil companies like Exxon-Mobil. According to the Exxonsecrets Web site, 124 organizations have received money from the company to spin a contradictory line against it.

But you'd be very wrong, according to an essay from a soon-to-be-released book on global warming.

You may very surprised to learn the debate over global warming began not with "big oil," but tobacco giant Philip Morris working to discredit a 1992 report by the EPA about the dangerous health problems associated with smoking, which is when the term "junk science" became part of the lexicon.

In the case of smoking advocates, junk science referred to scientific, peer-reviewed studies linking smoking to cancer, whereas "sound science" meant studies supporting the tobacco industry's claims that the link was inconclusive, principles soon used by global warming advocates to blur the debate.

A telling quote from a Brown and Williamson memo: Doubt is our product since it is the best means of competing with the "body of fact" that exists in the mind of the general public. That's the same kind of "shell game" conventional medicine and politicians are playing with your health as described in my newest book, The Great Bird Flu Hoax.
