While one American-based climate change skeptic walked away with a $541 soapstone carving, Talisman Energy and other donors to "research" funds at the University of Calgary received tax receipts as a result of a public-relations campaign to cast doubt on global warming science, newly released records have revealed.

No suprise. Trying to get a few fringe scientists with limited credentials to give 'crediblity' to denial is one fo the few options they have.

But some note how far out of the mainstream and how crude the work is and give it respect it deserves. None.

Educators are exposing students to skeptics? The horror!!

You can't train good proles to obey commands with free speech, knowledge and questioning values.

The threat of imminent catastrophe due to man's fossil fuel use economic chaos, higher prices and politicians willing to use climate fears to gain power.

You don't have to be a sheep, you can become a wolf and rip out the throats of pols using climate demagogy.

Vote Tea Party, for climate integrity.

why is it when government funds Climate Change and only supports those to tell us "the sky is falling" is in the interest of Good Science, but when industry funds its own Climate Change group, to verify or deny some of the bogus claims of Climate Change, is a horror, corruption and the like.

Like it or not, Climate Change has been a fact of the earth since it began. How do you think fossil fuels were depositied....climate change. The seas have risen and falled to deposit sediments which have maturated over time to create coal, oil and gas and the like.

Lets hear both sides of the story....not just the politally correct side. If we did not have Climate Change, we would have NO fossil energy, or fresh water, for that fact.

What's your problem, upset because they didn't ask you to help?

Everyone should note that your scientific credentials aren't just limited, they're non-existent.

That CO2 cannot be a 'pollutant'? Wrong. Anything CAN and IS a pollutant in a specific context. In this case, as a greenhouse gas causing 'thermal pollution' of the planet.

The point is really that the whole claim of 'CO2 is vital to life' and 'CO2 is plant food' promoted by Earthling is not so much that it is technically wrong, but that it is IRRELEVANT to the issue of CO2 as a 'thermal pollutant'. Agreed?
