Marshall Institute [ edit ]
In September 2001, he accepted a position as executive director of the
George C. Marshall Institute, but left the institute after 5 months, [3 ] saying that "the trappings of scholarship were used to put a scientific cover on positions arrived at otherwise. These positions served various interests, ideological or material. For example, part of my job consisted of making arguments about global warming that just happened to coincide with the positions taken by the oil companies that funded the think tank." [4 ] [5 ]
