"Drexel University completed a study that concluded conservative foundations and others have bankrolled their case with $558 million between 2003 and 2010.“Money amplifies certain voices above others and, in effect, gives them a megaphone in the public square,” writes environmental scientist Robert J. Brulle,"

Ahh... the "money" argument. Let's compare, shall we?

From the above link, "The final sample for analysis consisted of 140 foundations making 5,299 grants totaling $558 million to 91 organizations from 2003 to 2010."

$558 million over 8 years... about $70 million a year.

However, warmists have these figures, "The budget information presented in this report reflects the Administration’s commitment to address climate change while preserving a strong American economy. The President’s 2014 Budget proposes over $21.4 billion for climate change activities."

http://www.whitehouse.gov/sites/default/files...

Hmmm....$21.4 billion in one year compared to $70 million. Break out your Spongebob calculator lunkhead... what percent is that?(Have your mommy explain what "percents" mean.)

So it would seem that the "one voice" "amplifcation" "megaphone" argument is foiled by warmists themselves.

Do shut up. Not only will you be saving the atmosphere from needless CO2 emissions, but you'd be seen as less a dupe.

...President Obama left Anaheim and traveled to the drought-stricken, desert-city of Palm Springs to play golf on a lush, green fairways. California’s water crisis or global warming never seems as pressing while chasing a little ball around in the grass.

And this isn’t the first instance of water-hypocrisy from the president. Here’s how Time magazine wrote up the president’s last trip to Palm Springs in February:

Obama Plays Water Guzzling Desert Golf Courses Amid California Drought

Over to you, Mr. President. I’ll start worrying about global warming when you start worrying about water management.

San Antonio's fountains are shut down; there's a water shortage.

My sister can only water her lawn once a week, by city ordnance.

Driving back yesterday, 4 out of 5 creeks along the way were dry. Lakes and ponds were about 30-50% low.

It's worse than it's been in years.

Is Obama holding a Global Warming emergency meeting tonight? Nope, that's not his priority. This is:

Pooled Press
5:25 PM
The President hosts a reception to observe LGBT Pride Month
East Room

Warmies! Get to the back of the conga line.
