Tell Climate Sceptic Think Tank to Disclose Funding

The Global Warming Policy Foundation, a climate sceptic group accused of routinely spreading misinformation to further its ends, has been asked to disclose who is funding it.
Although the foundation denies being funded by the oil industry, it refuses to disclose its main donors or reveal who or what provided the initial funding.
Leading climate scientists are supporting a Freedom of Information request for this information. On Friday the 27th of January, the request goes before a judge.
A registered charity should not be hiding who is behind it, especially when its main aim is to change public opinion. Support the scientists' request and insist that the public learn what is actually going on.

We the undersigned ask that serious attention be paid to the Freedom of Information request regarding the disclosure of funding for the Global Warming Policy Foundation, a registered charity with a mission to throw doubt on accepted climate science.
A supposedly educational charity should not be hiding who or what is behind its efforts and the public has the right to know.
As it is in the public interest, we ask that you support the measures being taken to end this secrecy.
Thank you for your attention.
