EXXON: Stop Funding Pseudoscience plea by Royal Society

The Royal Society (Britians leading scientific organisation) has just written a letter to Exxon Mobil asking it to cease its activities in funding junk science.

This is the first time in its hundereds of years of existance that the royal society has written to a company about its activities. This step was taken because as the Bob Ward of the royal society states:

"It is now more crucial than ever that we have a debate which is
properlyinformed by the science. For people to be still producing information
thatmisleads people about climate change is unhelpful. The next IPCC
reportshould give people the final push that they need to take action and we
can'thave people trying to undermine it."

The article from the guardian is here, the letter here.
