Smoking and Climate Change...

Then and Now....

'In 1998, the vice-chancellors of the UK's universities decided that they would no longer take money for cancer research from tobacco firms.
 

Over the past few days I have asked the Shell professor of earth sciences at Oxford, the university itself and the umbrella body Universities UK to explain the ethical difference between taking tobacco money for cancer research and taking fossil fuel money for energy research. None of these great heads, despite my repeated attempts to engage them, were prepared even to attempt an answer.'
