I do hope your prepared to respond in-kind about your "independent scientists".<quoted text>
Of course there is no vested interest involved....is there?
ALEC is a corporate bill mill. It is not just a lobby or a front group; it is much more powerful than that. Through ALEC, corporations hand state legislators their wishlists to benefit their bottom line. Corporations fund almost all of ALEC's operations. They pay for a seat on ALEC task forces where corporate lobbyists and special interest reps vote with elected officials to approve “model” bills.
btw, warmists should be last people criticizing others for their "models".
