From SumofUs.org:

Earlier this month, Google hosted a $2,500-a-plate fundraiser for one of the world’s most powerful climate change deniers, Senator Jim Inhofe.

And just two weeks before that, Google poured $50,000 into the coffers of the Competitive Enterprise Institute, a right-wing think tank that is also funded by the likes of the Koch brothers and ExxonMobil to put out faux “studies” that are used by policy-makers to deny climate change exists.

Simply put, Google is actively helping to fund the re-election of a senator who dismisses climate change as a “hoax”, and who even goes to far as to say that global warming, should it exist, is actually good because it adds to our economy.

Google’s support of CEI is just as harmful; the institute once ran ads saying that carbon dioxide is a positive factor in the environment and is best known for arguing that global warming is not a concern. CEI also launched multiple lawsuits aimed at discrediting the science behind climate change.

This is ridiculous! Almost all scientists agree that global warming/climate change is real and is happening as we speak. There is an enormous amount of data supporting global warming, and more being amassed daily. So why is Google doing this? Maybe to secure kickbacks from the ultra-wealthy, be they climate deniers or not. Either way, what they’re doing will have a detrimental impact on the environment. Let’s tell them that we know it’s wrong.

Tell Google: Stop funding climate change deniers. Sign the petition at action.sumofus.org.

  1. Nice to know information. I have always had a dislike for Google anyway. I even use Bing for my search engine.It gives much fewer but more relvant sites up than Google.
