AEI and Climate Change
I have relocated the following unsourced defences of AEI from the article. I have interspersed my comments. --Bob Burton 14:22, 14 February 2007 (EST)
- The Guardian article was been rebutted by AEI, pointing out that while it was true that they had received funds from ExxonMobil, the funding was spread out over a ten-year period, and totalled less than 1% of AEI's budget.
- this needs a source. The ten year clear is worth including but the percentage is really a bit irrelevant.
- The Wall Street Journal expanded on claimed innaccuracies in the report with
"Here are the facts as we've been able to collect them. AEI doesn't lobby, didn't offer money to scientists to question global warming, and the money it did pay for climate research didn't come from Exxon."
- unsourced. Not clear whether this is the WSJ news pages or the opinion page.
- In the conservative journal The Weekly Standard, AEI stated:
"[I]t has never been true that we ignore mainstream science; and anyone who reads AEI publications closely can see that we are not "skeptics" about warming. It is possible to accept the general consensus about the existence of global warming while having valid questions about the extent of warming, the consequences of warming, and the appropriate responses. In particular, one can remain a policy skeptic, which is where we are today, along with nearly all economists."
- again, unsourced.
- Columnist [Thomas Sowell] has claimed that AEI was assembling a roundtable discussion, wherein this approach is normal and entirely appropriate.
- I can't quite see what the relevance of this is.
