Why is this significant? Because of something the Petition Project states on its webpage:
The project has no financing whatever from industrial sources.So, they don't receive financing from industrial sources, except for funds from the fossil fuel industry, as it turns out. I have already shown how the Petition Project is a fraud when it was submitted as proof global warming isn't real to the Global Warming Skeptic Challenge, so it isn't anything new to find out they are lying. That has already been established. This project has been debunked many times by many people besides myself. But, it is interesting to get one more confirmation of how they are funded by the fossil fuel industry.
That shouldn't be a surprise any more than the news they are lying about it.
