This is what you call full “crisis communications” folks. Myron Ebell, along with his employer, the Competitive Enterprise Institute, have just issued a response over the PR Newswire to the Union of Concerned Scientists report on ExxonMobil and their links to tobacco misiniformation strategies. CEI is named in the UCS report so it's sweat time for Ebell, because his organization is going from bad to worse in the eyes of ExxonMobil, who has provided over $2 million in funding to the Washington think-tank.
Choice quote in the CEI release: “CEI does not deny that the global mean temperature is rising and that human activities may be responsible for some or all of the warming.”
So how would the CEI account for this commercial they ran earlier this year across North America?
