Once again, Luckovich nails it!
FOLLOW THE MONEY. There are no millionaire climate scientists. No billionaire climate scientists.
ALL the money comes from Big Oil spending bazillions on poopaganda so they can keep selling a product that KILLS PEOPLE, exactly like Big Tobacco (and supported by many of the same apologists).
THERE IS NO MONEY IN “BIG SCIENCE.”
I can show you the corporate executive billionaires at ExxonMobil, BP, Royal Dutch Shell, Chevron. Anyone who wants to claim there is some kind of fraud or hoax needs to SHOW ME THE BILLIONAIRE climate scientists, professors, field researchers, etc. who are supposedly profiteering from this fraud.
And there is NO INCENTIVE to fabricate climate change. Scientists conduct research, and a scientist does not make more or less depending on the outcome. The ONLY INCENTIVE is with Big Oil because they are making BILLIONS off a product that, like Big Tobacco before them, KILLS PEOPLE and they don’t want the BLOOD MONEY to stop.
Whatever research dollars are spent on climate science all goes to EXPENSES. It costs money to travel to Antarctica and all over the world and to run labs and buy equipment.
Sure, PhD scientists go to school for a lot of years, more years than those Big Oil executives and investors, and in return they make a decent MIDDLE CLASS income, but no one gets rich off of climate science (except the ones who sell out to Big Oil).
