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