Should the Oil Company Executives Go on Trial?
by

Obama science guru John Holdren isn’t sure.  Michael Egnor, writing for the Science & Public Policy Initiative, reports on a television show last year when Holdren was asked about trying company executive for “crimes against humanity” for doubting global warming:

I couldn’t really say. I’m not qualified to assess what the heads of oil companies, past or present, have done in this domain. My understanding is that Exxon, in particular, did fund a variety of small think tanks to generate what amounts to propaganda against understanding of what climate change was doing and the human role in causing it. Whether that sort of activity really constitutes crimes against humanity is something for those more embedded in the legal system than I to judge …
