More documented evidence on the corruption of S. Fred Singer.




1993 and 1994 were busy moments in the life of S. Fred Singer. During this period of time Singer was using offices  provided by Sun Myung Moon ("moonies") founding his "Science and Environmental Policy Project" ("SEPP"), orchestrating the "Heidelberg Appeal" to counter the Union of Concerned Scientists' "Appeal to Humanity", organizing two corrupt science reports published by Alexis de Tocqueville Institution attacking the EPA, participating in the Tobacco Institute "Whitecoats Project", and co-hosting two fraudulent science gatherings.


One of these science gatherings called "Scientific Integrity in the Public Policy Process", was co-sponsored by International Center for Scientific Ecology ("ICSE") and SEPP, both which were S. Fred Singer front organizations, held May 24-25th, 1993, at the Madison Hotel in Washington, D.C.

Singer, already in the employ of the Whitecoats Project, was globally known to tobacco executives around the world. Here are a few surviving fax references to the International Center for Scientific Ecology, linking the Heidelberg Appeal to tobacco stealth activities.

Three of these faxes explicitly mention the "Heidelberg Appeal" and the Paris ICSE meeting in the same document. The body of documention found in tobacco industry files includes materials impossible to obtain except by collaboration of the Heidelberg Appeal/ICSE key figures. There are drafts of the guidelines to use for the meeting, pre-meeting lists of invited panelists, and, of course, there is a particularly touching post-meeting report by tobacco industry stealth Whitecoat agent Peter N. Lee.


Lee's report, on the foundational meeting/seminar of an organization named "International Center for Scientific Ecology" has his amusing comment "Having said that, it was notable that no members of environmental organizations had been invited to the conference, so counter-arguments were often not made." It took a number or reading for the importance of that fact to sink in -- no ecologists, no environmental scientists with any understanding of the ecological world, were invited to an event hosted by "International Center for Scientific Ecology". Lee's cynical sneering of the "restricted" nature of this meeting is clear evidence in itself of the pure industry-propaganda purpose of this organization.

''Subject: the Heidelberg Appeal ...This coalition has its roots in the asbestos industry. ... We are involved ... but we are being discrete because some of the coalition members are concerned about a "tobacco connection".  Our strategy is to continue discretely supporting the coalition and help it grow in size and credibility.''

Up until the 1994 time period, Richard Mellon Scaife was the principal ultra-right-wing donor to "Institute of Humane Studies" at George Mason University. In later years Scaife's continuing donations would be dwarfed by Koch Industry, owners killer Charles G. Koch, and killer David H. Koch.

http://www.atlasusa.org/highlight_archive/1995/H1995-02-Environment.html -- In January 1995, the Science & Environmental Policy Project moved to Fairfax, joining Atlas, the Institute for Humane Studies, The Locke Institute, and the Center for Market Processes at "4084 University Drive" near George Mason University. Atlas provided a grant to IPPS to facilitate the move and help fund the organization during its first year in Fairfax.


Listed at the same address as SEPP and Atlas are Institute for Humane Studies, Locke Institute, and the Charles G. Koch Summer Fellow Program.

The Institute of Humane Studies was a smokescreen affiliation S. Fred Singer used in an AdTI-tobacco whitecoats fraudulent science report during the 1993-1994 time period.


Certainly the most indisputable evidence of moral turpitude of S. Fred Singer was his crafting of the "Science, Economics, and Environmental Policy: A Critical Examination A Research Report Conducted by the Alexis De Tocqueville Institution" Date: 11 Aug 1994, Length: 70 pages

Not one single member of the "Academic Advisory Board", the so-called "peer-reviewers", can be found clean of taint of corruption. Almost every one of them has important monetary attachments to Tobacco Whitecoats Project, George Mason University (Scaife-Koch) funding, and/or other dirty-industry flacking.


Recall that ICSE/Heidelberg Appeal "has its roots in the asbestos industry" and the section on asbestos in this AdTI report makes more sense than if looked at only as a tobacco-funded smokescreen.


William Hazelton operated a lab for the DDT whitewash -- DDT was banned as environmentally disasterous, and the bugs soon developed resistant mutations, so it was ineffectual as well, NOT because it was cancer-causing, but Hazelton's disproof of cancer-causing is supposed to show the EPA was wrong to ban DDT. DDT also appeared in tobacco, having saturated the growing soils and having a very long half-life in the soils, so tobacco funded the tobacco-friendly spokesperson Hazelton lavishly.


Hazelton was party to the fraudulent AdTI 1994 'science report" by S. Fred Singer and Kent Jeffreys. the AdTI report of main controversy was: "Science, Economics, and Environmental Policy: A Critical Examination, A Research Report Conducted by the Alexis De Tocqueville Institution", where Hazelton was listed as "Academic Advisory Board" member. Hazelton is listed on page 14 of this RJ Reynolds Tobacco Company document, http://tobaccodocuments.org/rjr/506934337-4358.pdf, as receiving $479,357 in 1987, $763,995 in 1998, and budgeted for $550,000 in 1989.


Another turncoat, "whitecoat Robert D. Tollison" received these check numbers:

These are the "peer-reviewers" that S. Fred Singer, "senior reviewer" assembled for the "Academic Advisory Board" on the AdTI smear campaign on the EPA's scientific integrity.
