Google Funding Climate Deniers? What the Heck?

According to Xian Rev Jim Ball, Google and Facebook are sponsors of "one of the worst climate-denier organizations in the world: the so-called Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI)."

Google is supporting one of the worst climate-denier organizations in the world: the so-called Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI).

... while CEI does not disclose donors to the organization's regular budget, they do for sponsors of their annual dinner:

The lineup of sponsors both confirms certain stereotypes about the right-leaning think tank and challenges others. The energy sector donated $110,000 to the event, the same amount given by conservative foundations (three of which are associated with the billionaires Charles and David Koch). But the biggest single donor is Google, which gave $50,000, and Facebook kicked in $25,000.

Let me make sure you caught this: "the biggest single donor is Google ..."


Now I feel bad to use Google and Facebook. So much for greenwashing.
