Committee for a Constructive Tomorrow
|It's gettin' hot in here|
Committee For A Constructive Tomorrow (CFACT) is a fact-free anti-environmentalist pressure group founded by David Rothbard and Craig Rucker in 1985. They both have the academic backgrounds, lifestyles, addresses and PR guru mugshots of serious lobbyists. Three of the primary funders of CFACT are the Carthage Foundation, Exxon Mobil, and the Sarah Scaife Foundation. A whole host of prominent deniers have sat on its board of advisers at some time, including Sallie Baliunas, Roger Bate, E. Calvin Beisner, Michael Fumento, Sherwood B. Idso, Patrick Michaels, and Frederick Seitz. The organization funds Climate Depot, Marc Morano's online denialist outlet. In 2009, they helped to organize the Copenhagen Climate Challenge, the denialist response to the United Nations' Copenhagen Summit.
