    (to be taken seriouslybut not personally)

  • The scientific basis for the greenhouse effect and the potential impact of human emissions of greenhouse gases such as CO2 on climate is well established and cannot be denied. Who said:

  • Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate ChangeDr. James Hansen, Director NASA Goddard Institute for Space Studies

  • Dr. Rajendra Pachauri, Chair of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate ChangeDr. James Hansen, Director NASA Goddard Institute for Space StudiesDr. David Suzuki, Canadian Environmental Icon

  • Encourage the public to questionfrom the grassroots upthe validity of scientific studies. What corporation created The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition (TASSC) to:

  • Monsanto Corporation to protect itself against lawsuits over the danger of PCBs

  • Monsanto Corporation to protect itself against lawsuits over the danger of PCBsPhilip Morris to deflect U.S. legislation against second-hand smoke

  • Monsanto Corporation to protect itself against lawsuits over the danger of PCBsPhilip Morris to deflect U.S. legislation against second-hand smokeGeneral Electric to safeguard its nuclear energy investment

  • Monsanto Corporation to protect itself against lawsuits over the danger of PCBsPhilip Morris to deflect U.S. legislation against second-hand smokeGeneral Electric to safeguard its nuclear energy investmentExxonMobil to distract Americans from thinking about climate change

  • Monsanto Corporation to protect itself against lawsuits over the danger of PCBsPhilip Morris ah ha! You thought number 4 was always the right answerGeneral Electric to safeguard its nuclear energy investmentExxonMobil to distract Americans from thinking about climate change

  • Who did Philip Morris solicit to join in in TASSC, to help fight the fight for sound science?

  • ExxonMobil

  • Doubt is our product, since it is the best means of competing with the body of fact that exists in the mind of the general public. It is also the means of establishing a controversy.Brown and WilliamsonTobacco Company memo1960s

  • The Advancement of Sound Science Coalition

    Establish TAASC as a credible source for reporters when questioning the validity of scientific studiesEncourage the public to question from the grassroots up the validity of scientific studiesMobilize support for TAASC through alliances with other organizations and third party allies1992

  • American Petroleum InstituteVictory Will be Achieved When:Average citizens understand (recognize) uncertainties in climate science; uncertainties become part of the conventional wisdomMedia understands (recognizes) uncertainties in climate scienceMedia coverage recognizes balance on climate science and recognition of the validity of viewpoints that challenge the current conventional wisdom1998

  • Science, December 3, 2004 Vol. 306, Issue 5702,1686

  • Have they succeeded?No wonder people are confusedPercentage in doubt as to cause:Percentage in doubt as to cause:

  • Frank Luntz- Straight Talk 2002The Scientific Debate remains open. Voters believe that there is no consensus about global warming within the scientific community. Should the public come to believe that the scientific issues are settled, their views about global warming will change accordingly. Therefore you need to continue to make the lack of scientific certainty a primary issue in the debate, and defer to scientists and other experts in the field.
