Snowe/Rockefeller Letter and Response

Filed under: Climate Politics

A couple of weeks ago, Senators Olympia Snowe (R-ME) and John Rockefeller (D-WV), teamed up to write a letter to ExxonMobil asking them to no longer fund climate change skeptics. Apparently, the Senators feel that they already know enough and are not interested in hearing anything by anyone other than from who and what they already believe about the issue of climate change and it potential impacts.

The reactions to the letter have been mixed, to say the least. While the Senators obviously thought this was a good idea, others were less than thrilled. A few folks think that this amounts to little more than politics-as-usual (e.g., here), while others are a bit more incensed(e.g., see here, here, and here, for example).
