PR companies are no different. They see the sucker and go collect the revenue.
What about you?

"Public relations firms have played a critical role over the years in framing the debate on climate change and its solutions as well as the extensive disinformation campaigns launched to block those initiatives.

Now a number of the top 25 global PR firms have told the Guardian they will not represent clients who deny man-made climate change, or take campaigns seeking to block regulations limiting carbon pollution. Companies include WPP, Waggener Edstrom (WE) Worldwide, Weber Shandwick, Text100, and Finn Partners."

This is progress, folks.

Gee... can the atmosphere tolerate the additional CO2 you just added with your silly post?

Well...? Is it a "crisis" or not?

btw, your choice of "and" in your reply means "in addition to"... thus, you agree with the hypocrisy claim, AND I acknowledge you tried to make a joke (ie, "hippopotamus".)

See...? I can play petty word games like the warmists. But please, don't further this 'definition of the word/grammar' discussion any more. First, it's silly, and second, it won't change anything... other than you adding more CO2 into the atmosphere which is (as the warmists claim) already at "crisis" levels.

OTOH... as a hypocrite warmist yourself, you really don't care what your "science" says, so it won't surprise me (or other skeptics) should you attempt some grammatical refutation.

The ball is in your court... shut up and prove yourself, or post again and prove me.

What a conundrum.

My hippopotamus trumps your hypocrite and makes about as much impact on the discussion. If you would quit huffing and puffing, we all would be better off. Try to add something valuable to the discussion.
