Question by Shifty: What do oil companies gain from funding scientists who are against global warming promotion?
I always see global warming promoters complaining that “big oil corporations are funding” scientists to lie about global warming.
What would be in it for the oil companies?
But it hasn’t stopped oil production in Brazil, Canada, Venezuela, and obviously the Middle East, so I still don’t see the benefit of them funding these scientists.
Plus the oil companies would just pass off the cost resulting from regulations to the consumer in the form of a gas tax or increase in prices.
Answer by linlyons
they get to keep drilling, extracting, and selling as much as they can, before the world realizes that warming is going to do serious damage, and limits the amount of oil that they can extract, and taxes that which they do extract, to encourage the use of renewable energy sources.
