FUNDING OF CLIMATE SCIENCE IS KEY TO DISTORTION OF THE TRUTH

This piece by William Briggs looks at the claims and counter claims over the funding of climate research and the influence of the source of that funding. We all know the expression "he who pays the piper call the tune", and it is very true. That is why it becomes so important who is paying for climate change research. William Briggs has touched a raw nerve when he rightly asserts that it is government that is paying the climate scientists to research into global warming, and it is the government that is intent on bringing in all the taxes and subsidies designed to promote renewable energy and phase out fossil fuels. It is the government that has a huge amount to lose if global warming turns out not to be a problem.
