So let’s say your right because there isn’t a lot of information about funding of private climate science…
There is a presumption here that the government would stop or reject funding for a group of scientists if they came to the conclusion the global warming was a hoax, or that it exists but was just part of a natural cycle. Evidence? Zero.
Where is the evidence that the government attaches conditions to the money it gives for research? There isn’t any.
Even if that’s true and scientific research is for sale, why don’t big companies with such a huge stake in the answer to the question buy their own research? Because it’s not for sale.
I mean if scientists are “in it for the money”, I bet Exxon would pay better than any government agency if the results were favorable to the fossil fuel industry. Most scientists aren’t in it for the money.
But no, all the climate scientists on earth united in a conspiracy to lie to us over more than a century, so tight that not ONE of them will spill the story and admit they are being paid to produce a specific result, even though they’d make much MORE money for doing so and there are damned few examples of any such fraud lasting more than a few years.
Think of the potential for fame and recognition.
Imagine the story…
After a 30 year career in government-funded science, climate scientist Dr. So-and-So exposes the truth. The emails from the government agencies that funded his research telling him that he better come to the “right” conclusions or that his funding would be cut off!
What a scandal, he could write a book and make millions of dollars, ya know, because scientists are in it for the money and all
OR … The truth about climate threatens the profits of some of the worlds largest corporations.
Give me a break.
