That is the amount scientists and economists have been offered each by the American Enterprise Unit (AEI) to undermine the IPCC report on climate Change. Travel expenses and extras are extra. The AEI is funded by Exxon-Mobil to the tune of more than $1.6 million. David Viner of the Climatic Research Unit at East Anglia University commented: “It’s a desperate attempt by an organisation who wants to distort science for their own political aims. The IPCC process is probably the most thorough and open review undertaken in any discipline”. See the Guardian report.
