US thinktank offering cash to dispute UN climate panel

Desperation on the part of the few who stand alone in the quest to dispute Global Warming for monetary purposes.

Feb 01, 2007

LONDON (AFP) - A right-wing American thinktank is offering 10,000 dollars (7,700 euros) to scientists and economists to dispute a climate change report set to be released by the UN's top scientific panel, media reported.

The American Enterprise Institute (AEI), which receives funding from oil giant ExxonMobil according to the Guardian, sent letters to scientists in the United States, Britain and elsewhere offering the payments in exchange for articles emphasising the shortcoming of the UN's report.
AEI also reportedly offered additional payments, and to reimburse travel expenses.

The report, released Friday in Paris by the UN's Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC), gave a bleak assessment of the damage to the future of the environment.
