EXPOSED: THE SECRET CORPORATE FUNDING BEHIND HEALTH RESEARCH

ACADEMICS AND THE MEDIA HAVE FAILED DISMALLY TO ASK THE CRUCIAL QUESTION OF SCIENTISTS' CLAIMS: WHO IS PAYING YOU?

Three cheers for George Monbiot!

I emailed him after the Live 8 fiasco as he had been one of the very few people to speak out about the way that it missed the point, as the multinationals and Blair and Bush were actually the problem, not the solution etc. I passed on the information about Coltan, and the PFI issue of telcos assuming the guise of other companies, and, of course, the 'research' that was being bandied about by the operators and government, and he actually emailed me back and thanked me, which I thought was encouraging, as on his web-site he explains that he cannot reply individually to emails as he gets so many! (I was really disappointed when I was on the climate change march as my coach left before I heard him speak, because he is one of the few trustworthy voices of reason in this country to get any airtime). Today's article at least shows that through figures like George M, even the Guardian (which has been pretty appalling for siding with the industry lately) has to print stories which highlight our case. It will be interesting to see if any letters from mast campaigners get past the editor!
