Last week, we reported that Wei-Hock “Willie” Soon, a leading climate change denier, was paid upwards of $1 million by energy companies to conduct scientifically spotty research. Another round of documents released today by Greenpeace shows that oil and gas giant ExxonMobil was a big contributor to Soon’s funding. The documents, obtained by Buzzfeed, show that Exxon gave Soon $76,106 from 2008 to 2010, despite the company’s insistence in 2007 that it had stopped funding him.
“Exxon told us that they would stop funding climate denial front groups,” Greenpeace researcher Jesse Coleman told BuzzFeed. “Years later, they were still funding Willie Soon.”
