Interesting story in the SMH today.

Documents show that Professor Bob Carter, a leading climate change  
sceptic  is paid a monthly retainer by the US Heartland Institute.

Heartland is a conservative think tank, and is paying Carter $US20,000  
as part of a program to pay "high-profile individuals who regularly  
and publicly counter the alarmist [anthropogenic global warming]  
message".

Here's an extract from Wikipedia on Heartland:

In the 1990s, the group worked with the tobacco company Philip Morris  
to question the science linking secondhand smoke to health risks, and  
to lobby against government public health reforms.[6][7][8] More  
recently, the Institute has focused on questioning the scientific  
consensus on climate change, and has sponsored meetings of climate  
change skeptics.

Sounds like we have out own 'doubt-mongers' right here at home ....
