your outraged about corporate funded scientists lying to you about cigarettes being good for your health, but your totally fine with corporate funded scientists lying to you that co2 is good for the environment?
They should be given heavy compensation because before the 70s, cigs were advertised as being good for your health. they even had doctors on their promotions and adverts to convince the public that it would be beneficial to them. Now, if it was because the conpanies didnt KNOW that cigarettes were bad for you, i would say fair enough. no need to give compensation. However, its a documented fact that the companies knew that it was bad for your health long before cigarette advertisements were banned
