Two Democrats introduced a resolution Monday disapproving of companies that “deliberately mislead the public” about climate change science, an attack on oil giant Exxon Mobil Corp., which has been accused of doing just that.  In a joint resolution offered by Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse (D-R.I.) and Rep. Ted Lieu (D-Calif.), the members say they disapprove of “activities by certain corporations, trade associations, foundations and organizations funded by those corporations to deliberately mislead the public and undermine peer-reviewed scientific research about the dangers of their products, and to deliberately cast doubt on science in order to protect their financial interests.”
