One of the world’s most powerful technology
companies is giving tens of thousands of dollars to politicians and special
interest groups actively engaged in misleading the public about the reality of
climate change — and the Center for Inquiry wants you to tell them to stop!
Today (July 11) Google will host at its
Washington, D.C. offices a fundraising lunch for Sen. James Inhofe
(R-Oklahoma). Inhofe is no ordinary politician to be lobbied—he’s the most
ardent climate change denier in Congress. Spreading the notion that global
warming is a “hoax” and a “conspiracy” is Inhofe’s marquee issue. He’s even said
that more CO2 in the atmosphere would
be “beneficial to our environment and the economy.”
And in June, Google was the largest single donor
to a fundraising dinner for the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), giving
$50,000, according to the Washington
Post. CEI is an organization that denies the threat of global
warming on behalf of energy interests, and who infamously ran television ads
dismissing the fact that carbon dioxide (CO2) is a pollutant. (“They call it
pollution, we call it life,” says the narrator.)
The Center for Inquiry is shocked and deeply
disappointed by Google’s association with these so-called “climate skeptics,”
and is urging the company’s leaders to examine their consciences and cease
any further support or donations for those promoting harmful nonsense.
