Here are some anti-science, paid entities and/or willfully ignorant individuals, companies or organizations are very sneaky and there are also a number of individuals, groups and organizations (not all listed here) that their sole purpose is to mislead, generate confusion, unsubstantiated information and anything that either halts or slows down the growth of both Climate Action and Renewable Energy expansion. They are in many cases well funded so money is not an issue to them.
