Warmist Slander of Scientific Skeptics

Warmist true believers bitterly cling their mantra that only the corrupting influence sinister money could possibly explain skepticism toward the theory they embrace as gospel truth.

‘In case anyone is unfamiliar with the simplicity of the man-caused global warming idea: overwhelming scientific conclusions say we are causing floods / droughts / blazing summers / intense winters; and don’t listen to any skeptic scientists — they’re corrupt.’

‘This mantra is fine until you start asking questions. On the so-called consensus of “numerous” IPCC scientists, it appears Donna Laframboise has now exposed a rather troubling set of problems with the IPCC’s 1995 Health Chapter authors, and John O’Sullivan has just recently pointed out some details the NOAA would rather not have you know about, while Steve McIntyre continues to tear down the ClimateGate scandal with ever finer levels of detail.

Considering how Exxon, Chevron and others have climbed on the CO2 reduction bandwagon, believers of man-caused global warming may have realized the ‘skeptic scientists corrupted by big oil’ idea was rapidly losing credibility. Skeptic populations are increasing, somebody must be funding them.’

‘Of course, the fundamental premise of “big coal/oil funding = corruption” has never been proven; the lack of such evidence becomes quite obvious when reading Ross Gelbspan’s 1997 book “The Heat is On.” As Gelbspan is the most widely acknowledged promulgator of this accusation, it becomes quite a challenge to find people whose accusations against skeptic scientists aren’t rooted in his 1997 book.’
