  1. The scientists who are pushing Climate Change are doing it because they are getting paid to study it.

    "The Science and Public Policy Institute announces the publication of Climate Money, a study by Joanne Nova revealing that the federal Government has a near-monopsony on climate science funding. This distorts the science towards self-serving alarmism. Key findings"

    "The US Government has spent more than $79 billion of taxpayers’ money since 1989 on policies related to climate change, including science and technology research, administration, propaganda campaigns, foreign aid, and tax breaks. Most of this spending was unnecessary."
  2. Of course...thats the way the world works. As long as you make more money studying a problem than fixing it, they will continue to study it "carefully"

    Just like I'm sure they will find a cure for cancer as soon as people stop giving money to cancer research and it becomes more profitable to cure people than to "look for a cure"
  3. Goldman Sachs says Global Warming is real, and you'd better get with the program, or you'll be eating Haitian mud pies, mofos.
