What the Competitive Enterprise Institute Whats You to Believe About Global Warming

To sum it up: They want you to believe it's a hoax and that only quacks believe it. And they are willing to spend hundreds of millions of dollars they have received from the oil-industrial-complex to confuse you with "disinformation."

What's at stake? Oil profits. Did you know that Exxon's CEO makes roughly $26,000 an hour? Global demand for oil is up; oil exploration can't keep up with the demand. Consumers want alternatives to oil and Al Gore refuses to pander to the oil industry. CO2 in large quantities is harmful and major contributors to the excess CO2 are fossil fuels. So the
CEI with a huge infusion of cash from the big oil giants does the industry's biddings. They buy off reporters, scientist, and other experts off to spread their "disinformation propaganda" and try to confuse the consumer. Manufactured consumer confusion is "good for bizzness", keeps the public eye off of their backs.

Let’s hope that the public wises up and keeps their eye on the ball. It’s time for new sources of energy!
