Attempt to Silence Dissent over Global Warming

Once a stuffy scientific body, Britain's Royal Society is now searching for relevance by becoming a political lobby group. And shutting up debate is their modus operandi -- as we see in the report below from "The Guardian":

"Britain's leading scientists have challenged the US oil company ExxonMobil to stop funding groups that attempt to undermine the scientific consensus on climate change. In an unprecedented step, the Royal Society, Britain's premier scientific academy, has written to the oil giant to demand that the company withdraws support for dozens of groups that have "misrepresented the science of climate change by outright denial of the evidence".


Oil companies greatly dislike the way they are constantly demonized (you would too) so Exxon may well cave in.

The Royal Society also pushed their myth about "consensus" over global warming last year. There is in fact NO proof of man-made global warming. The tiny warming observed in the 20th century (less than one degree Celsius) is well within the range of natural fluctuation. It's all speculation.
