Abstract

In the concluding part of Chap.  4, this book discussed sustained corporate campaigns for discrediting scientific evidence by spreading disinformation, propelled in the United States by business lobby groups’, think tanks’ and individual scholars’ deep-seated aversion against restrictions of any kind to free-market capitalism. One prominent instance the chapter referred to was planetary warming and its impact on climate change.
