This is the fourth installment of Dunlap, Jacques' (2013) study of the history of our dysfunctional public climate science education dialogue. They focused on the influence of "conservative think tanks (CTTs) on the output of "skeptical" book publications and this section deals with Book Ties With Conservative Think Tanks.
Here are facts about why out and out lying has been allowed to became the mainstay of the Republican climate science contrarian PR strategy Facts that it would be good for younger activists to be aware of. Given that the study has a CCA License I've decided to Repost the complete text in a few installments. I thank Riley Dunlap and Peter Jacques for the opportunity to Repost their impressive work.
I follow with excerpts and related links to a number of eye-opening articles

Conservative Think Tanks (CTTs)
Book Ties With Conservative Think Tanks
Our examination of the links between the denial books and CTTs follows the procedure we used in our prior study of environmental skepticism (Jacques et al., 2008). Specifically, links were established in one of two ways: The author or editor was affiliated with a CTT or the book was published (or copublished) by a CTT press (often both).
