AEI Linked to Fraser Institute

Kenneth Green, the “visiting scholar” who last year offered $10,000 payments to any scientist who was willing to provide an “independent” analysis of the report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change, was the former Director of the Centre for Studies in Risk and Regulation at The Fraser Institute - which is set to release such an “independent analysis” on Monday.

ExMo Pays Scientists $10,000 To Trash IPCC Report

Scientists and economists have been offered companies $10,000 each by a lobby group funded by ExxonMobil to undermine the IPCC's new Fourth Assessment Report. The report surfaced a day after one of the most notorious and reviled US Skeptics, Richard Lindzen, was featured on CNN's Larry King Live.
