Nine of Out Ten Climate Denying Scientists Have Ties to Exxon Mobil Money
Once you crunch the numbers, however, you find a good proportion of this new list is made up of a small network of individuals who co-author papers and share funding ties to the oil industry. There are numerous other names on the list with links to oil-industry funded climate sceptic think-tanks, including more from the International Policy Network (IPN) and the Marshall Institute. picked by zircon77777 7 months ago

Morgellons: A hidden epidemic or mass hysteria?
I meet Paul in a pub in a Birmingham suburb. He shows me pictures he's collected of his fibres. On his laptop, a grim parade of images flicks past. There are sores, scabs and nasal hairs, each magnified by a factor of 200. In each photo there is a tiny coloured fibre on or in his skin. picked by plurk 7 months ago

But unlike most of us, the 22-year-old college student in Indiana puts his anger to good use. picked by drogue 7 months ago
