Supporting climate change denial

InfluenceMap Comment:

Suggesting uncertainty in the science of climate change, emissions 'may' be warming the planet (Corporate website, May 2015)

Extract from Source:

Oil and natural gas take us down the street and around the world. They warm and cool our homes and businesses. They provide the ingredients for medicines, fertilizers, fabrics, plastics and other products that make life safer, easier and better. While we rely on them for most of our energy and will likely do so for years to come, emissions from their production and use may be helping to warm our planet by enhancing the natural greenhouse effect of the atmosphere. That’s why oil and gas companies are also working to reduce their greenhouse emissions.
