    A better example of what is going on is the tobacco companies' failure for 40 years to admit that smoking causes lung cancer and to take steps to reduce use of their products.  How many shills were hired for that cause.
    I seem to recall reading that some of the very same shills, whose expertise was PR and marketing--not tobacco nor climate science--shifted seamlessly from tobacco-damage to climate-change denial.

    Yep, Google is my friend....

    But what I have discovered while researching this issue is that the corporate funding of lobby groups denying that manmade climate change is taking place was initiated not by Exxon, or by any other firm directly involved in the fossil fuel industry. It was started by the tobacco company Philip Morris. (emphases added)
