"Washington think tanks are not always paragons of intellectual integrity, but we can't quite remember the last time that an institution ostensibly devoted to research so transpartently whored itself to corporate backers--in this case, the oil industry."Curt Davis, a scientist at the University of Missouri whose Science paper appeared in one of the CEI ads, says the CEI is (surprise, surprise) misrepresenting his work:
"These television ads are a deliberate effort to confuse and mislead the public about the global warming debate," Davis said. "They are selectively using only parts of my previous research to support their claims. They are not telling the entire story to the public."Blogger Tim Lambert calls Christopher Horner of the CEI "dishonest."
