I never knew that climate science is where all of the money is at! Those sneaky, rich little scientists! Forget that the petrochemical industry brings in trillions of dollars each year from the sale of the prime anthropogenic source of greenhouse gases: oil and other fossil fuel hydrocarbons. Forget the tens of millions of dollars in campaign contributions from that same petro industry supporting politicians who will vote in favor of the industry's vested interest in keeping fossil fuels energy source numero uno. It seems totally clear now that it's really those self-interested, tree-hugging, fear-mongering, conspiratorial climate scientists that have the political clout to suppress the otherwise overwhelming evidence that people have absolutely nothing to do with this supposed "global warming" climate change! I'll
bet the world's actually cooling. Even if the world is
warming, then all it means is vineyards in north Britain and food and riches everywhere else. Warmer temps don't actually fuel nasty things like weather extremes. Well, maybe in Africa, but then, who cares about Africa?
If the northern polar ice sheets melt, then it just means open trade routes and access to more oil deposits.
Oh yes, polar bears. Well, no one wants polar bears to die off. Luckily, it appears they already survived one warm period in the past, so there's no conceivable way they could die out now. If their numbers are already in decline, well then, that's just a coincidence. Next point?
As for Africa, it's no wonder the scientists don't want it to develop. Do those Africans contribute even one cent to those scientists' salaries and/or research grants? No? Good, then they don't owe them nothin'!
Videos like this are kind of scary, seeming all slick and incontrovertible. I wonder where the funding for this film came from? I'd be awfully surprised to find out any of it came from oil interests.
A good quick one-page read on some of the numbers and theory behind CO2 and global temps is here.
