In the U.S. there are several Think Tanks designed to disgrace the consequences of pollution and Climate Change, in order to ease a lack of rules and responsibility for the environmental harm some corporations are doing . In Canada the Harper Conservative government funded CSEE and industry funded EPIC were think tanks designed to rebrand the Oil Sands as ‘clean’, and to deliver “Economic Prosperity with fewer (environmental) regulations.”
My favorite acronym for one of these groups is AAAS, The American Association for the Advancement of Science. This acronym is known among evidence based scientists, as “Armchair Asses Against Science.” When I heard that on the radio I laughed, and knew almost instantly what my next serigraph was going to be based on.
When 97% of all scientists say that Climate change is real, and alarming, and there is clear evidence that it is human caused, it is sad that so much weight is still given to the 3% of scientists and their powerful and generously funded lobbies to sow seeds of doubt and delay action to protect our global climate. Deja vu Tobacco lobby.
