Science Committee Chair Demands Exxon reveal 2007 think tank grants

Rep. Brad Miller (D-North Carolina), chair of the House Subcommittee on Science and Technology, fired off a strong letter (pdf) to ExxonMobil demanding that the oil giant hand over documents relating to all grants awarded so far in 2007 by recipient.

Miller penned the letter after Greenpeace revealed today that ExxonMobil continues to fund global warming science attack dogs in the form of think tanks and industry-friendly associations. In the letter to Exxon CEO Rex Tillerson, Miller states:

ExxonMobil continues to lead the world's corporations in profits and in market capitalization. Unfortunately, ExxonMobil's economic success has been tarnished by a history of sowing doubt about the science of climate change, science you privately know to be true.”Could this be the first step in a Congressional hearing similar to Rep. Henry Waxman's famous Big Tobacco Hearings?

Sure looks that way.

This is a guest post by David Suzuki.

The Amazon rainforest is magnificent. Watching programs about it, we’re amazed by brilliant parrots and toucans, tapirs, anacondas and jaguars. But if you ever go there expecting to be overwhelmed by a dazzling blur of activity, you’ll be disappointed. The jungle has plenty of vegetation — hanging vines, enormous trees, bromeliads and more — and a cacophony of insects and frogs. But much of the activity goes on at night or high up in the canopy.

Films of tropical forests don’t accurately reflect the reality of the ecosystems....
