As a general rule, always look for where the money is flowing behind political issues – especially the heated ones. It doesn’t necessarily mean that they are wrong. But it means that one should view their statements in context.
Please don’t be surprised. Government-paid researchers are desperate to perpetuate the climate shock. They know that if there is no warming as they have predicted, the generous public funds that support their work will eventually dry up.
It is in their financial interest to keep the public tied up in knots of anxiety and to dupe politicians, who are eager to assume the posture of caring guardians of the environment so they’ll to continue to hand them money
And it fits right in with the other evidence problems that undermine the global warming narrative, such as the hopelessly flawed temperature record, the unreliable models that can’t even predict the past, and the possibility that as many half of the alarmist research papers could be wrong.
Instapundit Glenn Reynolds is fond of saying that he’ll believe there’s a warming crisis when the people who are saying it’s a crisis start acting like it is. Maybe we’ll start believing there’s a warming problem when government scientists quit cheating to make it look like a problem exists.
