Wow, even the paid shills were more honest

This is kind of funny:  in 1995, a now-defunct organization called the Global Climate Coalition (in fact, a front for the carbon lobby) hired a bunch of scientists to "examine" climate change science.  Result:
But a document filed in a federal lawsuit demonstrates that even as the coalition worked to sway opinion, its own scientific and technical experts were advising that the science backing the role of greenhouse gases in global warming could not be refuted.

“The scientific basis for the Greenhouse Effect and the potential impact of human emissions of greenhouse gases such as CO2 on climate is well established and cannot be denied,” the experts wrote in an internal report compiled for the coalition in 1995.
