Globe International's significant involvement is in rapeseed biodiesel promotion in the UK (2OC - Oxburgh and blue-ng - Oxburgh - both honorary adviser). They are (probably) behind the recent EU legislation to have paper pulp from Indonesian forests declared 'illegal' - helped by WWF campaigning - July 7th to be precise.
Oxburgh was chairman of D1 Oils which is going down the tubes and barely tottering on the edge, because its hyped-up bogus biodiesel from Jatropha plants in 50-50% partnership with British Petroleum and Pachauri's TERI went bust. The plants do not grow with all the 'slight precipitation' that was promised to make them proliferate like weeds, they don't give that much diesel either. TERI and British Petroleum, incidentally, have kept their long-standing relationship alive, via Mission New Energy from Australia, which is running the same jatropha show. The morons in India who created a 'market' by legislation, by mandating 20% of all diesel by 2020 be biodiesel, had the brilliant former Indian President, nuclear scientist APJ Kalam, backing their jatropha fantasies.
Goeffrey Boulton, UEA, IPCC contributor is of Univ of Edinburgh, which recently awarded a honorary degree to BP CEO Anthony Hayward, who earned his PhD from the Geology department at the same university. BP's David Eyton and Geoffrey Boulton, ex-UEA teamed up with Russel to form the Russel panel.Baron, and later the Lord Oxburgh is ex Shell International. Pachauri is ex-Indian Oil Corporation
Anyone who says big oil is funding skeptics can take a flying ....
Philip Campbell of Nature magazine, stepped down, so rapidly after his 'conflict of interest' was 'discovered' by skeptic bloggers (they must have been rolling in the aisles after they staged that one).
