Meet the Money Behind The Climate Denial Movement

by Colin Schultz Smithsonian.com

The overwhelming majority of climate scientistsinternational governmental bodies, relevant research institutes and scientific societies are in unison in saying that climate change is real, that it’s a problem, and that we should probably do something about it now, not later. And yet, for some reason, the idea persists in some peoples’ minds that climate change is up for debate, or that climate change is no big deal.

Actually, it’s not “for some reason” that people are confused. There’s a very obvious reason. There is a very well-funded, well-orchestrated climate change-denial movement, one funded by powerful people with very deep pockets. In a new and incredibly thorough study, Drexel University sociologist Robert Brulle took a deep dive into the financial structure of the climate deniers, to see who is holding the purse strings.

According to Brulle’s research, the 91 think tanks and advocacy organizations and trade associations that make up the American climate denial industry pull down just shy of a billion dollars each year, money used to lobby or sway public opinion on climate change and other issues.

  1. The International Public Movement ALLATRA published another 2014 report https://allatra.tv/en/book/on-the-problems-and-consequences-of-global-climate-change in which we not only described what will happen now, but also what will happen next. But the main thing is not horror stories, and we have proposed effective ways to solve these problems. But for this, humanity must unite, and not go in favor of politicians to kill each other. And to begin to take at least act each, and not be silent. We are planning to hold a global online conference where we want to say STOP escalation of nuclear war to all politicians in the world! All information is on the volunteer TV channel ALLATRA TV.

  2. Climate change is a real thing BUT the causes are the contentious issue here. The mainstream media, politicians and the scientists are parroting the line that it is MAN MADE pollution that is causing the change BUT there are those that believe other factors are causing the changes. Natural climate change cycles ie. Ice age are but one factor. Another that is not mentioned very much is our earth magnetic fields wane and ebb like the tides which in turn allows more solar energy into the atmosphere which affects the ionosphere which is the engine of our weather patterns. Another factor maybe interference in our weather patterns caused by technology. HAARP, chemtrails and energy focused beams on the ionosphere can also interfere and disrupt our weather patterns. So yes climate change is real but the causes is what the arguing is really all about. This is the nano-termite vs nuclear vs terrorists argument of weather. Divide and conquer is their game. Yeah another way to divide the masses along with all their other ploys to control us.

    • Oh and i forgot to mention the earths core that also plays a part too in the magnetic field which in turn affects the weather and the movement of our magnetic poles. So many variables can possibly affect the weather but they focus on only one and that drowns out the other possibilities.

  3. Anthropogenic Climate Change, we see it evey day as the Stratospheric Aerosol Spraying and atmospheric heating continue daily. The denial industry is just your typical disinformation and misdirection per our buddies at the top of the Crime Factory.
