It has been very long since politicians have been trying to restrict legislation on climate change. Their depictions have been further heightened given the fact that a number of scientists are claiming that greenhouse gases exposed has risk factors involved in it.
A Harvard-Smithsonian Astrophysicists Wei-Hock Soon has been held publicly denying the climate changes and has frequently been seen on new programs where he has testified such notions in front of the Congress and in state capitals. He was also appointed as a public speaker at a conference which focused on refuting to as issue as huge as the risks associated with global warming.
Soon, also referred to as Willie, claimed that the changes visible in sun’s energy makes it evident enough to clarify the recent condition of global warming.
A recently revealed report clearly demonstrates the length to which Soon’s work has been associated with funding that he has been receiving from corporate sources. It was proven that he has been funded more than $1.2 million from the energy industry, fossil-fuel to be more precise, in the last decade without once having the audacity to revealing this contradictory situation 8 out of his 11 research papers as of yet.
He has been publishing papers on this since 2008 and it is evident that he is responsible for violating ethical outlines of the journal which published his papers.
The documents reflected that Soon and his associate funders has called his paper as “deliverables” which carried out for their sponsorship and regarding this issue, Soon has not responded to any queries. The documents were received by Greenpeace as per the Freedom of Information Act and later distributed to other news organizations.
This seems like propaganda of organizations trying to restrict legislations to protect their interests and carries it out by patronizing independent scientists.
Naomi Oreskes, a historian of science at Harvard University and co-author of “Merchants of Doubt,” a book about such corporate interest campaigns as stated that “The whole doubt-mongering strategy relies on creating the impression of scientific debate. Willie Soon is playing a role in a certain kind of political theater.”
A big chunk of expert still concludes that greenhouse gas emission is largely created by human lead activities and puts civilization in danger in the long run.
