Then if this is valid, we can ignore all that BS about grant chasers and warmers who fly in jet planes and own yachts.
Your posts are so full of wandering flotsam that attempting to create a coherent reply would take volumes of which you'd read the first sentence or so.

That said, on your first comment...

It's the warmists that are ever so quick to find associations to funding to "evil oil companies" as a means to debunk opponent's research, and hold their fave scientists above reproach because... uhh... err... well they are, and that's all there is to it!

Just the same I can't imagine how any recipient of pubic monies could complain about including an addendum to their papers to cite their funding sources and a spending summary, Would that not be a prudent decision?

However, you're mixing up your whines. It's the celeb promoters of global warming that are being held accountable for their non-adherence to the "science" they claim proves a "crisis".

When 95% of the world's opinion is against you in terms of science do you honestly expect the 5% to dominate opinion.
Onto flotsam number two...

First, the whole "consensus" argument is bogus, put still a popular meme of the warmists. It's just an attempt to debunk with the logical fallacy of group-think appeal to authority.

No matter how many follow the "consensus", if a theory is wrong, it's wrong. Trumpeting "settled" science is the antithesis of the scientific method.

Who said anything about dominating opinion? In 'real' science, all research is considered. Warmists, however, preclude skeptics outright and dismiss them with a whole list of pejoratives as if that in itself is argument enough.

Then we could include college educated as 99% against you. The 1%'ers would only account for the likes of Beck & Hannity who are reformed alcoholics, claiming to have found God who guides them on the righteous path much like the crusaders and Islamic extremists.Yet totally ignore something they can see and feel everyday to place their faith in the unseen & unproven. There is nothing Adult about that, its mythical science more suited for bedtime stories or cave walls.
And now flotsam number 3...

Wow... you've got issues. Beck and Hannity alcoholics? That's relevant to what exactly?

Ahh... the 99-percentes envy based whining.

I'd say you've found global warming as a means to cobble your myriad of hate themes into a single "cause".

Get over it... some folks have more. Some have less. No amount of government intervention will change that.

The 95% of science is proven, just google and see. As for the 1%'ers show me a college educated person who does not have ties with fossil fuel interests or some right wing organisation that believes climate change and man's influence in it is all BS. Then I will stand corrected!!

"false farts" has no new science, chemistry, astronomy, physics, algebra, & pre-calc for its poorly (or non-) earned hi skule DEE-plooomaa, because it thinks it was boring.

"false farts" has no teaching certificate, so its questions aren't worth consideration.

It's because of you deniers we are now entering adaptation mode, learning to cope living in the mess we have created. If deniers were ruling the world we would all be extinct in 50 yrs just like the dinosaurs they are.

"The United Nations' latest report on climate change contains plenty of dire warnings about the adverse impact "human interference with the climate system" is having on everything from sea levels to crop yields to violent conflicts." People may not agree on the science of climate change, but uncertainty about the future is no excuse for failing to prepare for the worst. "The dam of orthodoxy is cracking," Simon Jenkins wrote in The Guardian on Monday. "If Rome is burning, there is no point in endlessly retuning Nero's fiddle."
So now it's adapt while we watch Rome burn and in the meantime deniers try and throw more fuel on the fire.

The consensus arises from looking at the scientific evidence.

Not one single species has been extinguished by man made global climate change.
