Tim Ball: Deceptions, Prevarications and Arguments with no Evidence

The following article, (with my own annotations in boldfaced italics), popped up last week on a right-wing website called HumanEvents .

Flirty ExMo Gets Slap from Blogger

Here's an entertaining tale of an ExxonMobil seduction-gone-wrong.

Reports of ExMo's Reform Prove Premature

Anyone celebrating ExxonMobil's recent announcement that it acknowledges the truth of climate change can stick the cork back in the bottle. While Exxon's vice president for public affairs, Kenneth Cohen cast climate cange as undeniable, ExMo CEO Rex Tillerson made it clear yesterday that the company is still happily clinging to doubt.

“My understanding is there’s not a clear 100 percent conclusion drawn,” Tillerson told an industry gathering in Houston. “Nobody can conclusively 100 percent know how this is going to play out. I think that’s important.”

"Misunderstood" ExxonMobil Seems to Change Tune

When it comes to the issue of climate change, Exxon Mobil says it has been misunderstood.

UN blames global warming on fossil fuels; Exxon posts $40 billion US profit

In an ironic twist of timing, the world’s largest publicly owned oil company registered its largest-ever corporate profit on the eve of the landmark report by Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change saying there is little doubt global warming is caused by man. Other major oil companies have also reaped unprecedented profits from fossil-fuel consumption.

Monckton fights for Exxon's freedom of speech

Christopher Monckton, a well-known climate change “skeptic” and British aristocrat has fired off a response to U.S. Senators Snowe and Rockefeller for their letter this fall urging oil giant ExxonMobil to cease funding to US “think” tanks that are actively involved in the PR campaign to confuse the public about climate change.

No thanks Al, we'll stick with the tiger

When Laurie David approached the National Science Teacher's Association (NSTA) to offer 50,000 free DVD copies of Al Gore's Inconvenient Truth she was surpised by the answer: “Thanks but no thanks.” In a recent Washington Post editorial titled “Science a la Joe Camel,” David, who is one of the producers on Gore's movie, explains that the rebuke was due to concern over that other “unnecessary risk upon the [NSTA] capital campaign, especially certain targeted supporters.” Any guesses about who those “targetted supporters” might be? I know, it's getting old, but I'm sure you guessed it: ExxonMobil.

Former tobacco spin-doctor plays cruel climate change hoax

Speaking of fake videos created by ExxonMobil-friendly spin doctors, according to Free Press and the Center for Media and Democracy, in June 2006 , the broadcast PR firm Medialink Worldwide put out a video news release (VNR) titled, “Global Warming and Hurricanes: All Hot Air?” Apparently, the segment was aired over WTOK in Mississippi. The firm identified “TCS Daily Science Roundtable” as the client behind the segment. But Medialink didn't disclose that TCS Daily is a website published by Tech Central Station.
