Answer by Kris Rosvold:
Here's my reasons for being willing to believe that we helped cause it.
1) 581.25 : 1
2) I have looked at the sources of those 24 denialist papers and tracked them back. Guess what? The funding sources of at least 18 out of the 24 track directly back to corporations which have a vested interest (profit motive) in maintaining the status quo. Three of those 18 have funding sources which track back to the Koch Brothers through their shell corporations.
So… on those 24 papers… Cui Bono?!
Tar sands producers
Oil Derrick engineering firms
Oil exploration companies
Shall I continue?
