Last week, I reported on the greenwashing phenomenon as criminal fraud perpetrated by the public relations industry on behalf of big fossil fuel and the banks that fund them. This week, I will focus on the greenwashing being done by alleged 'objective' economists. As it turns out, these economists are anything but--objective. And, why would they be? They are often paid by big fossil fuel. This is a perfect example of academicians selling out and the damage they do to all of us. 

This report is based on an academic paper written by Benjamin Franta titled: Weaponizing economics: Big Oil, economic consultants, and climate policy delay. Frata's paper was supported by the Stanform Interdisciplinary Graduate Fellowship, Climate Social Science Network; Stanford University Department of History.
