ABSTRACT
In this editorial the authors comment on the attempts by conservative groups to discredit the motion picture documentary "An Inconvenient Truth," a film about global warming featuring Al Gore. They analyse television commercials that claim that global warming does not exist. The commercials were funded by money donated to a conservative think tank by the oil producer ExxonMobil.
