Submission + - Largest profiting company ever bribes scientists.

An anonymous reader writes: Playfuls.com (http://www.playfuls.com/news_09_2799-ROUNDUP-Exxo nMobil-Posts-Record-2006-Profits.html) is reporting that the world's largest oil company, ExxonMobil, posted the largest profit EVER for a US company (39.5 Billion Dollars). In other news today, an oil company-funded lobbying organization tries to pay scientists $10,000 (http://www.guardian.co.uk/frontpage/story/0,,2004 399,00.html) each to write papers discrediting today's climate report. Guess which oil company is the funder here? Next time you tank your car, choose wisely.
