Kenneth Green held the positions of Chief Scientist and Director of Centre for Studies in Risk, Regulation, and Environment at the Fraser Institute from 2002 to 2005. While at the Institute, Kenneth Green published many anti-Kyoto and climate change skeptical articles, notably the "Science Isn't Settled: The limitations of climate change models", together with Tim Ball and Steven Schroeder. He contributed an article called "Kyoto Krazy" to the Fraser Forum for January 2003, entitled The Politics, Science and Economics of Kyoto.
This latter article contains a representative statement of Kenneth Green's position on climate change as of 2003: "But other scientists, in both Canada and the United States, have shown that the threat of global warming is overstated by the United Nations (McKitrick and Essex, 2002). Indeed, scientists such as Harvard University’s Sallie L. Baliunas explain that most observed global warming has been a natural, and largely beneficent phenomenon, primarily related to the increase of energy output from the sun (Soon, Baliunas et al., 2001)."
As reported in the Vancouver Sun: "The Fraser Institute received $120,000 US from ExxonMobil in 2003-'04, according to the company's annual report. [Fraser Institute President Michael] Walker said the funding paid for the work of researcher Ken Green."
