Web site on the False claim that

Fossel Fuel is Fianacing anti-global warming dis-information

Russell Cook: For the past three years I have conducted research on an essentially full-time basis into the accusation that skeptic climate scientists are paid by industry to lie. I’ve shared my findings in numerous online articles at AmericanThinker.com, RedState.com, Breitbart.com, JunkScience.com and elsewhere. My conclusion can be readily summarized: the accusation appears to be a false claim, a myth generated by a small group of enviro-activists with significant direction from ex-Boston Globe reporter Ross Gelbspan. (For more about Ross Gelbspan, go here.)

I’ve been a nature-loving cheapskate recycler all my life. Until recently, I didn’t really give a rip about global warming because I remembered the big global cooling craze back in the ‘70s. Plus, I was aware of the skeptic scientists’ viewpoints I’d seen in an April 2000 PBS Nova/Frontline program, so I reasoned that the science in the issue was anything but settled.

But sometime in 2008 I heard politicians saying the science was settled, which prompted me to ask what justified that position. It was a simple question that was met with no answers, only the accusation that anyone who didn’t believe global warming is a man-made crisis must be a stooge for the fossil fuel industry. Since I was and still am not anybody’s stooge, I started to research that accusation, and still am researching it.

In December 2009 I compiled my initial research into the first of several articles for AmericanThinker on this narrow topic. About a year later, I began hammering the PBS NewsHour to explain why they had never allowed skeptic climate scientist guests on their program to offer their detailed viewpoints.

With my second AmericanThinker article focusing entirely on the skeptic smear, I thought I had enough to prompt a news outlet such as Fox News to look deeply into the matter and report about it beyond my limited private citizen means. Hindsight now tells me I hadn’t gathered enough for a compelling story.

After approximately 60 articles and blogs, it is time to take this whole effort up one level in intensity by launching this Web site. (For more about this site, go here.) My goal hasn’t changed. I’m more than glad to share my findings with open-minded journalists.

At this web site, I dig deeply into the accusation that scientists and others who express skepticism about the theory of man-made global warming are being paid by the fossil fuel industry to lie about the issue.

The origin of this claim goes back to the early 1990s, when some book references and magazine/newspaper articles suggested skeptic scientists were out to “reposition global warming as theory (not fact)” at the behest of the coal industry, which supposedly had produced a memo with that implied instruction. But this insinuation, lacking real evidence and general believability, was falling flat in the eyes of the public.
