Energy Interests Fund Duke University’s Research on Climate Change

Record #:
Duke Energy and ConocoPhillips have donated 3.5 million dollars to Duke University’s Climate Change Policy Partnership (CCPP) and that financial support may have influenced public policy. The money may have influenced members of the CCPP’s advisory panel and affected its the ability to vet climate policy research before it is released to the public. Anti-regulatory policy statements have been published under the CCPP’s name and critics say that its research has been skewed because of the two companies support.
