Editor's Note: My friend Paul Driessen has allowed me to publish his work for years and every week sends me articles, either by him or one of his many of his friends and associates involved in science, economics and social issues for publication. He always has a prologue to each offering. I thought this one was particularly appropriate. You may also wish to view Energy & Environmental Newsletter.
Instead of debating me on any of the important substantive topics that I raised in a recent article, detractors just claimed that I’m “associated with right-wing think tanks that are skeptical of man-made climate change” – and have received money from fossil fuel interests. Citing Greenpeace and DeSmogBlog as their “reliable sources,” they claimed the Koch brothers gave “at least $100,343,292 to 84 groups denying climate change science” over a recent 20-year period. That is supposed to destroy my credibility – and the credibility of nearly anyone who criticizes the “catastrophic manmade global warming and climate change” tautology.
But what happens when we apply those same standards to climate alarmists – who are determined to shut down debate and impose their wind, solar and biofuel policies on the world? Where do they get their money, and how much do they get?
Here we are talking about literally HUNDREDS OF BILLIONS OF DOLLARS over the past couple decades – dwarfing our funding by many orders of magnitude! Add in the massive funding for the renewable energy, climate consulting and related industries, and we are talking about many TRILLIONS OF DOLLARS!
My article lays out the sordid, disturbing details.
Thank you for posting it, quoting from it, and forwarding it to your friends and colleagues.
And have a blessed and happy new year!
