The amount of money being used by lobbyists in the US to promote big business far outweighs the confirmation bias in this article I think.

And Climate Progress is any more impartial????

According to Exxon’s most recent disclosures on donations — first reported on over at DeSmogBlog — the company donated more than half a million dollars to groups that have either campaigned against climate legislation or have spread misinformation about climate change. According to DeSmogBlog, the most recent disclosures mean that Exxon has spent more than $33 million in donations to anti-climate groups since 1998.

One of the largest single donations — totalling $325,000 — was made to the American Enterprise Institute, a conservative think thank in Washington, D.C. The think tank has taken a decidedly contrarian stance on climate change, and has a record of trying to fund misinformation about the topic. The institute’s energy expert, Benjamin Zycher, has called evidence for anthropogenic climate change “ambiguous,” a stance that stands in direct opposition to the 97 percent of publishing climate scientists that say that warming patterns over the past century are likely due to human activity.

Big business lie? Pshaw.
