    Apparently, this guy also declared that asbestos was not harmful. That's a good track record.

      Asbestos
      In 1996, Allègre opposed the removal of carcinogenic asbestos from the Jussieu university campus in Paris, describing it as harmless and dismissing concerns about it as a form of "psychosis created by leftists".[6] The campus' asbestos is deemed[by whom?] to have killed 22 people and caused serious health problems in 130 others.[7]

      Exxon Mobile ..... hmmmmm

      The second name on the list isn't even a scientist, he's a marketing forecaster, J. Scott Armstrong.

      Several others are Exxon people.
