The funding of a climate contrarian: the murky case of Willie Soon 24.2.2015 MinnPost
Is anybody out there shocked – shocked! – to learn that a leading scientist among the so-called climate skeptics is being financially supported by oil, coal and utility interests? I didn’t think so. And yet, the revelations about Wei-Hock Soon may redefine your impressions of how rotten things are in the science-for-hire game.

The carbon market is supposed to drive Europe’s transition to cleaner sources of energy, but a cocktail of recession, free allocations to polluters and over-achievement on green energy targets have created a flood of 2bn allowances. That has led to a carbon price of around €7 (£5) per tonne, too low to encourage power companies to switch from polluting fuels such as as ...
