And who pays for the warmists funding? Don't ask them. They either don't know or won't tell.
Curious, isn't it? if funding source is a legitimate argument, why are not the warmists volunteering that information to show themselves above repute?
Funding is one of the favorite straw man arguments of the warmists.
yepperz!!

Your next arugument will be, that AGW science can't be truth until oil, energy, business & business-led re-pubic-lick-uns pay scientists, like the less than 3% of scientists who don't believe in AGW.

You know the volcanoes have produced the excess Antarctic melting ice, ascribed to AGW presently & eruptions weren't producing melt water centuries ago..........

oh 'ace', that must be some sort of a mistake. the high priest of the warmers said over 5 years ago that the arctic would be ice free in 5 years. the satellite must not be able to tell the difference between open waters and ice. all of the computer models say there will be no ice in the arctic by now, and they were funded with free taxpayers grant money, to prove that it was caused by man. how could you be so mistaken? the ice is either all gone because of man or the warmers unproven theory is total bull manure. I guess they will need more free taxpayers money in government grants to find out what went wrong with their alarmist 'science' of global warming caused by man.

Don't answer a question with a question. It's a pathetic argument.

Perhaps that's one the best kept secrets of the warmists. Ever try finding the answer instead of popping off with a puerile, "Oh yeah, but what about...?"
You're really a motheaten hypocrite to talk about pathetic arguments...that's your specialty, it seems.

I answered your question ages ago, several different times, and asked denier traitors like yourself to show proof of climate scientists getting rich. Nothing has been presented showing that.

Scientists are paid by their universities and they receive grants, both public and private. Some are government employees. There are budget and oversight committees that monitor the proper use of these funds. If any of you traitors know of any fraud, of any scientists getting filthy rich off these grants and salaries, you should expose them and have them arrested. There might even be a reward for you.

But you can't.

And when we look at the 3% of scientists who disagree with the AGW consensus, we find that a few of them are traitors funded by big business or big oil. That's what I want you to realize.

So you traitors who play with the facts or deny them, in order to slow down action on climate change, are cheerfully giving support to the Chicom capitalists who are moving ahead of us in sustainable products and manufacturing.

You are traitors to the United States of America.

Agree and just by coincidence its those same deniers who aspire to tea party clan wisdom. Like Rush Limpdick calling the Pope a Marxist Communist because he made a comment on Capitalism not being as pure as the driven snow. Tea Baggers suck this stuff up like oxygen to their tired old brains.

Your "fun farts" are easy to ignore, since they are incorrect & biased. As the use of the years 1998 & 2008 have been non-scientific, the use of 2012 is also non-scientific, as non-scientific toxic topix AGW deniers do use all three years.

Your 50% missed the 60% that toxic topix AGW deniers toted, declaring 2013 a vastly cold year(which it isn't). The 60% was wrong, just like your 50%. Arctic sea ice VOLUMES are better, more comprehensive data to follow. toxic topix AGW deniers don't use it, since it shows their lies. Present December 1, 2013 Arctic sea ice VOLUME is 7% more than the December 1 date average, covering "2010 to the present time". December 1, 2013 Arctic sea ice VOLUME is 9500 cubic kilometers LESS than the December 1 date average, covering 1980-89 period.
