The Corrupt S. Fred Singer, corrupt Fred Seitz, corrupt AdTI, corrupt George Marshall Institute.
When the corrupt S. Fred Singer assembles a team of corrupted academics and scientific "Whitecoats" to lend authority to the tobacco whitewash reports he was contracted to do, one of the team was William Hazeltine (misspelled in a 1989 RJ Reynolds document as 'Hazleton'. Because of the typo it was missed in the first computer search of online documents, but turned up in a second finer search.
Hazelton was party to the fraudulent AdTI 1994 'science reports" 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. What the corrupt S. Fred Singer forgot to mention about each and every member of this board was their corrupt ties to big tobacco.
Hazelton is listed on page 14 of this 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.
A scanned OCR text version of this 1989 document is located at http://tobaccodocuments.org/rjr/506934337-4358.html.
Every single member of this team creating this phoney "Whitecoat Project" report, a report which was designed to cause confusion in the public mind that there was no linkage between second-hand smoke and health hazards to non-smoking people, was on the tobacco company payrolls or else received funding through ideological partners of the tobacco companies owners and major stockholders. Most of the academics also have some clear traceable connections to George Mason University, Richard Scaife or Koch Industries tying them in a package.
The deliberately deceptive S. Fred Singer co-authored one report in 1994 with Jeffreys which is signed on the title page as both authors being fellows of Alexis De Tocqueville Institution, which was "the Epa and the Science of Environmental Tobacco Smoke" located at http://tobaccodocuments.org/lor/92756102-6120.html.
But it would be transparently corrupt to list AdTI affiliation on the other report, "Science, Economics, and Environmental Policy: A Critical Examination, A Research Report Conducted by the Alexis De Tocqueville Institution", so Singer lists several alternate titles he varies around. In this report he is not listed as co-author, but as "senior reviewer" (page 4), and on page 3 as Profssor Emeritus of Environmental Sciences
University of Virginia, and President Science and Environmental Policy Project.
Singer would prefer not to be revealed as co-author, because it would be widely considered unethical to also be "principal reviewer" of a transparently fraudulent "peer-review" panel once anybody got curious enough to investigate all of the members. To be effective in injuring the EPA (and injuring the American people the EPA is created to protect), it was necessary to deceptively be partially disclosing of affiliations which had the appearance of greatest impartiality.
The fact that Singer was so deeply involved in crafting this deception propaganda at the requests of his paymasters in the tobacco industry, permanently and irrevokably invalidates S. Fred Singer from participating in modern science or being accepted as a spokesperson of scientific trust.
S. Fred Singer was documented as corrupt in 1993 and 1994 by records since confiscated from tobacco industry files by lawsuits of 46 state attorney generals. Singer's corruption can be traced further back in time and forward in time to build a record of constant corruption and disgrace. His associates for any period of time can likewise be traced to find similar incriminating documents which shows he has been actively subvertin compatriots and utilizing for covert subversion of America willing persons already corrupted.
At the time of Science and Environmental Policy Project creation, SEPP was housed in a Sun Myung Moon ('moonie') think tank in Washington, D.C., but soon moved to the Institute of Humane Studies (IHS) at George Mason University. The present and past AdTI and Singer connections to IHS/GMU are documented further below. Since SEPP Board of Directors member Frederick Seitz was involved in a similar attack on the EPA in 1994, it is worth the attention to notice the similarieties of deception reports coming simultaneously from partners at two corrupt think tanks funded by the same ideological backers.
Fredrerick Seitz was thorougly corrupt long before the Marshall Institute gave him a home -- the evidence just was not visible in public.
As early as 1980, Seitz was a paid consultant for Rj Reynolds tobacco company:
"While the report is primarily focused on the topic of global warming and ozone layer depletion, it briefly reviews ten other issues on which the public has been misled. ETS is mentioned as one of the examples.in the report (p:7).
What makes this report particularly significant is that it is authored by Dr. Frederick Seitz."
So in early 1994, the corrupt Frederick Seitz has his coming out at the shill Debutant's Ball. And considering the ever-after relationship with the corrupt S. Fred Singer, both officers of the SEPPtic tank "Science and Environmental Policy Project", it is worth noting that the corrupt S. Fred Singer is taking boodles of cash to the bank authoring similar smokescreens on behalf of the tobacco industry "Whitecoats Project".
In order to be effective, both these SEPPtic tank floaters have to create the appearance that they are not taking money from the tobacco companies while the tobacco companies are pretending they are not putting words in their sock-puppets mouths.
Continuing the AdTI expose -- here's more
Alexis de Tocqueville Institution -- The George Mason University connection -- There was NOTHING "academic" or "scientific" in the tobacco-EPA reports put out by AdTI. They were political and selfish-interest (profit first! above integrity) motivated and crafted deceitfully. Greed is behind the current slams on Linux and Open Source software, delivering a gullible public into the Microsoft monopoly clutches, and leaving them No Free Choice alternatives. It is monopolistic predatory practices at it's historic worst.
