By a happy coincidence, I understand that Fred Singer was one of
these latter. One quote: "Fred Singer is an Exxon shill. He used to
work for the Tobacco industry, saying that there was no clear link
between smoking and lung cancer."
A rather hysterical site gives some details: <
Another: "before that he shilled for the sugar industry, I
believe.... I once did a great deal of research on the role of
nutrition and behavior in prisoners and children. Amazing results
which Singer led the way in debunking as I remember, then it came out
who was funding him." This might not be correct; hard to see what an
atmospheric physicist would be doing speaking about sugar, but hey,
what was he doing talking about the safety of tobacco?
