What ever happened to the army of attorneys that helped Big Tobacco lie to the world for decades, after Big Tobacco finally lost all of its major lawsuits?

They're working for Big Oil now, crafting similar lies.

Took the words right out of my mouth. I think a few are also working for the big tech companies.

Of course, Big Oil would deny.

Meantime, ever since the Kyoto agreement, routine climate summit like COP has always been deemed critical & crucial, yet most outcomes have been discomfiting & a total let-down.

Political agenda and big cartels are the main culprits..

Saying that there is doubt over the “consensus” on global warming is not “misinformation.” A number of esteemed scientists such as Judith Curry have expressed skepticism on the influence of humans versus natural causes.

You're right, it's not. There are many complete and utter morons who think it's not a consensus even though it is. There is most definitely doubt over the consensus on global warming, but that doubt all comes from those on the lower side of the intelligence scale.

Oops, I'll try that again. I quoted the wrong paragraph.

Hmmm. This lobbyist admitted to disinformation by the oil companies. And he did it. He didn't know he was being recorded as he tried to get more contracts to more of it.
