Big companies investing to deny science of Climate Change

It's a bit like living in the matrix; our reality is shaped by forces beyond our control and the truth is far grimier than we would like to admit.

The Guardian posts an extract from Heat by George Monbiot that highlights specific individuals like Frederick Seitz who have used pseudo-science and a highly selective quoting from sources (often obsolete or demonstrably inaccurate) to "demonstrate" that climate change is unfounded.

I posted earlier how Michael Crichton is likely to have been funded from similar sources as he apparently successfully convinced folks like Seth Godin that man-made climage change is a fiction. Unfortunately the truth is rather stranger than that...
