How Lobbyists Delay Climate Action

Science versus money often results in a loss for science.  So it appears to be with climate change; recent research out of the University of California-Santa Barbara looked at the effects of lobbying on climate action. 

The lobbying is done by people and organizations that have something to lose if action is taken.  As a result, not much action is taking place. 

Kyle Meng, a professor in the school of environmental science and management at UCSB, is the lead author.  He lays out the findings in a visit to the Exchange.
