Oil company funding anti-global warming effort? Shocking!

This falls into the category of, “we knew that but it's nice to have more evidence.”

The left-wing environmental group Greenpeace has published a report showing that Koch Industries, a little-known U.S. energy conglomerate, has been funding research and lobbying by other interest groups opposed to climate change legislation.

Greenpeace says, “From 2005 to 2008, the Kochs handed out almost $25 million to groups actively opposing clean energy legislation, carbon emissions regulations, and other environmental policies — groups like the Cato Institute, the Heritage Foundation, and Americans for Prosperity, among many, many others.”

They've done a lot of research, so be prepared to spend some time digesting the report.
