I hear it’s been a bit wet in some parts of Oz. How many Flanneries did folks get last night?
Via a couple of the twitter links on the right:
There’s the one about global warmists being horrified, horrified about the money being spent on global warming sceptisism.
Oh, the shock and the horror! Sceptic mob the Heartland Institute receive funding! A shocking $6.5 MILLION according to leaked documents.
But some bloke called Tom Nelson notes: “With tiny budgets like $310 million, $100 million, and $95 million respectively, how can lovable underdogs like Greenpeace, Sierra Club, and NRDC *ever* hope to compete with mighty Heartland’s $6.5 million?”
This shocking global-warming-sceptics-are-on-the-payroll-of-Mr-Nastypants theme is continued over at Andrew Bolt’s blog where he rightly notes the shocking horror the Age newspaper expresses when they learn sceptic professor Bob Carter receives a WHOPPING $1550 bucks a month!
But wait a minute.
Al Gore’s set to become a billionaire thanks to his global warming schtick. The Age? No comment.
Aussie climate commissioner and waterfront resident Tim Flannery receives $180,000 taxpayer dollars per year for three days work a week scaring the kiddies about catastrophic sea level rises among other things. The Age? No comment.
Greenpeace pays Ove Hoegh-Guldberg a motsa to come up with doom predictions for Australia’s reefs – none of which have been any where near accurate. The Age? No comment.
NASA warmist professor James Hanson gets paid $1.6 million per year from outside sources interested in promoting the man-made global warming (which stopped 15 years ago) and yer gonna die line. The Age? No comment.
Damn you evil sceptics!!1
