Big Oil = Big Tobacco

Recommended Posts

I have wondered about this comparison.

Many people believe that Big Tobacco, with its money and advertising  - 1960s style, delayed the obvious connection between cigarettes and cancer.

Nowadays, many people believe that Big Oil, with its money and advertising  - 2020s  style, are delaying the obvious connection between carbon and climate change.

Carbon? In fact. it is CO2 - Carbon Dioxide.

Climate change? In fact, it is  global warming.

And to me, that is the tip that Oil is nothing like Tobacco.

What's the critical thinking phrase modern teachers use?

"Correlation != Causation"

"Just because you arrived at 10 am and the guy died at 10 am, it doesn't mean you are guilty. You were in  Los Angeles and he died in New York."
