Gore: Polluters Manipulate Climate Info

By GILLIAN WONG

Quote :
SINGAPORE (AP) - Research aimed at disputing the scientific consensus on global warming is part of a huge public misinformation campaign funded by some of the world's largest carbon polluters, former Vice President Al Gore said Tuesday.

"There has been an organized campaign, financed to the tune of about $10 million a year from some of the largest carbon polluters, to create the impression that there is disagreement in the scientific community," Gore said at a forum in Singapore. "In actuality, there is very little disagreement."

Gore likened the campaign to the millions of dollars spent by U.S. tobacco companies years ago on creating the appearance of scientific debate on smoking's harmful effects.

"This is one of the strongest of scientific consensus views in the history of science," Gore said. "We live in a world where what used to be called propaganda now has a major role to play in shaping public opinion."

Here is the other side of the story just for balance. I haven't read the whole thing yet but funding part on PDF page 2 caught my attention. So far it's a really good read.

CO2: The Greatest Scientific
Scandal of Our Time

by Zbigniew Jaworowski, M.D., Ph.D., D.Sc.

Quote :
This obviously is not the case with the IPCC, which is
stuffed with money, and in agreement with the UN politics, which are dominated by greens and misanthropic fanaticism. During the past six years, the President of the United States devoted nearly $29 billion to climate research, leading the world with its unparalleled financial commitment (The White House 2007). This was about $5 billion per year, more than twice the amount spent on the Apollo Program ($2.3 billion per year), which in 1969 put man on the Moon. A side-effect of this situation, and of politicizing the climate issue, was described by meteorologist Piers Corbyn in the Weather Ac-tion Bulletin, December 2000: “The problem we are faced with is that the meteorological establishment and the global warming lobby research bodies which receive large funding are now apparently so corrupted by the largesse they receive that the scientists in them have sold their integrity.”

The question arises: Were the decisions concerning this enormous funding for global warming research taken out of genuine
concern that the climate is allegedly changing as a result of CO2 industrial emissions, or do some other undis-closed
ideas stand behind this money, IPCC activity, Kyoto, and
all the gruesome catastrophic propaganda the world is now exposed to? If this concern is genuine, then why do we not see a storm of enthusiastic environmentalists and United Nations officials demanding to replace all fossil-fuel plants with nuclear plants, which have zero emission of greenhouse gases,
are environmentally friendly, more economical, and much
safer for plant workers and much safer for the general population than other sources of energy?
