More Exxon shenanigans much for Exxon giving up their funding of sceptic groups. A quick glance at the groups linked from that page shows that they do indeed feature the standard septic nonsense, I found something by Baliunas very quickly (and no, it wasn't about astronomy, where her opinions might possibly be worth something).

This news rather undermines the credibility of the EGU officials who (in the CL division meeting at the recent EGU meeting) repeatedly referred to Exxon's bad behaviour as a purely historical phenomenon and were very adamant that we should not judge Exxon on their record but on their supposed pledge to be more honest in future. I wonder if this news will force a rethink?
