[PETITION] Google is funding climate change deniers.


Earlier this month, Google hosted a $2,500 a person fundraising dinner for one of the world’s most powerful climate change deniers, U.S. Senator Jim Inhofe. And just two weeks before that, Google poured $50,000 into the coffers of the Competitive Enterprise Institute (CEI), a right-wing think tank that is also funded by the likes of ExxonMobil and Philip Morris (Altria) to put out faux "studies" that are used by policy-makers to deny climate change exists.

Google had been a corporate leader in fighting for the environment, so why is it funding the very people and institutions that are fighting tooth and nail to block progress on climate change?
