Although they play a major roll, there are many others, who also use "charitable" organizations to promote all kinds of climate denial.

Proving once again, that it's time to tax the hell out of those that think that destroying our Planet is some kind of charity.

"A new study conducted by Drexel University's environmental sociologist Robert J. Brulle, PhD, exposes the organizational underpinnings and funding behind the powerful climate change countermovement.

Koch and ExxonMobil have recently pulled back from publicly visible funding. From 2003 to 2007, the Koch Affiliated Foundations and the ExxonMobil Foundation were heavily involved in funding climate-change denial organizations. But since 2008, they are no longer making publicly traceable contributions.

No longer making publicly traceable contributions - HUH a familiar story/practice. Therein to find all of the usual suspects. F'n Dark Money.

Deniability. It's not them, if you can't prove it.

It is amazing to me that after all this time - with all of the crap that these individuals have done - that NOW they feel the need to hide their activities. GOOD - apparently they are feeling the heat of growing public contempt.

The public has always had a short memory, and now it also has to cope with sensory overload, making it even shorter.

Eyes and ears must never be pulled from these people, even as new "contributors" are found.

Ummm I am not sure that it is sensory overload - more like a constant assault on public credulity as we all wait (?) look for (!) an end to the blatant rampant crimes against humanity and the world. Sensory overload will be - when the outcry ends.
