American Council on Science and Health (ACSH)
Koch Industries Climate Denial Front Group
$155,000 received from Koch foundations 1997-2009
In 1997, ACSH released a position paper titled “Global Climate Change and Human Health,” which claims that cutting greenhouse gas emissions, because it would hurt the economy, would be more detrimental to public health than global warming. “[P]olicymakers can safely take several decades to plan a response, and scientists will have enough time to develop cost-effective and anti-climate-change strategies.”
According to internal American Council on Science and Health documents published by Mother Jones, ACSH also receives money from Chevron, the American Petroleum Institute, and many other large companies in the agribusiness, tobacco, chemical and soft drink sectors.
