Default Global Warming a 'fear campaign' by scientists 'hooked on government grants,' Greenpe

I've heard a couple of different interviews with Patrick Moore and he makes complete sense. He made a great point in an interview I heard this morning. He said that if the science of Global Climate Change is settled, then why do these climate scientist continue to study the subject. Could it be that they are 'hooked' on the government funding they are receiving?

He lays out his case in this article.

Global warming a ‘fear campaign’ by scientists ‘hooked on government grants,’ Greenpeace founder says

March 11, 2019 (LifeSiteNews) — Conservatives have long argued that anthropogenic global warming (AGW) is a politically motivated distortion of climate science. Now that argument is being bolstered by an unexpected source: the co-founder of the leading environmental organization Greenpeace.

Patrick Moore, who is also a former president of Greenpeace Canada, appeared on SiriusXM’s Breitbart News Tonight last week for an interview with Rebecca Mansour and Joel Pollak.

“Fear has been used all through history to gain control of people’s minds and wallets and all else, and the climate catastrophe is strictly a fear campaign,” he said, adding that proponents of AGW — the view that human activity rather than natural phenomena is primarily responsible for Earth’s changing climate — is also fueled by “guilt” that “you’re killing your children because you’re driving them in your SUV and emitting carbon dioxide into the atmosphere.”

Moore argued that on top of “the green movement creating stories that instill fear in the public” and the “media echo chamber ... repeating it over and over and over again to everybody,” the narrative is bolstered by “green politicians who are buying scientists with government money to produce fear for them in the form of scientific-looking materials” and “the green businesses, the rent-seekers, and the crony capitalists who are taking advantage of massive subsidies, huge tax write-offs, and government mandates requiring their technologies to make a fortune on this.

“And then, of course, you’ve got the scientists who are willingly, they’re basically hooked on government grants,” he continued. “Most of the scientists — put it in quotes, ‘scientists’ — who are pushing this catastrophic theory are getting paid by public money[.] ... [M]ost of what these so-called scientists are doing is simply producing more fear so that politicians can use it to control people’s minds and get their votes because some of the people are convinced, ‘Oh, this politician can save my kid from certain doom.’”

The desert southwest is breaking records for coolest weather on record for this time of year. I don't suppose anyone has heard about it in the MSM, have they?

I know here in the upper Midwest, we have had some unseasonably cool temperatures. But I suspect those facts are what caused the Global Warming alarmists to change their claim from Global Warming to Global Climate change.

Hammer meet nail...When facts fail to agree with their ideology, just change the facts...

When 'scientists' are paid by a specific group, and they rely on that income for their living, no matter how ethical they may believe themselves, their results will lean towards what the payer wants it to be.

The employment field for such studies is limited, as the employers are few. Ticking off one's employer doesn't usually lead to longevity in the field.

It is still cool down here. Yesterday I was coming home from our house in Cedar city Utah, and it was snowing when I left.
