This is a series of a dozen or so charts taken from data developed by others and a lot of specious comparisons. No science in particular.

NCPA is the National Center for Policy Analysis, one of 6 or 8 interlocking mouthpiece organizations for Exxon and various fossil fuel producers. Others in the org chart include Myron Ebell's Competitive Enterprise Institute mentioned the Vanity Fair article, 'Inconvenient Untruth' I've already cited. NCPA and CEI share at least two employees (adjunct scholars and funding from Exxon. Over the past 10 years they've picked up just under 500 grand from Exxon. Their primary role appears to be coordination of the efforts of other such outfits. NCPA thinks that global warming is a plot by unnamed persons to force energy rationing onto us.
