Health Editor’s Note: While this article was written in 2013, the information is still relevant as we continue to see a wrong way movement in keeping our earth from a downward environmental spiral. Outlaw wealthy individuals and corporations lobbyists.  Do away with all lobbying. The wealthy are not usually very intelligent and certainly generally are only in life for what he or she gets out of it.  They find it easy to forget about others and what they are going to leave behind for their children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren, etc.Some of us care deeply and desperately about the negative changes that are happening to our earth.  We have to stop money from talking. Honest, intelligent people in government would be a good start….Carol

Meet the Money Behind The Climate Denial Movement

by Colin Shultz 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.

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.

“The anti-climate effort has been largely underwritten by conservative billionaires,” says the Guardian, “often working through secretive funding networks. They have displaced corporations as the prime supporters of 91 think tanks, advocacy groups and industry associations which have worked to block action on climate change.”

  1. What exactly “climate change” means anyway? Global warming – anybody remembers that anymore – or something else? Like weather changes :O ?

    Until few months ago “global warming” was just around every next corner, but polar bears are still roaming up north, and children today are witnessing snow every winter all over – so “scientists” finally took a look through there lab windows and empirically concluded that they’re caught lying…

    Yeah tell me something more about global warming, puhhleasse… Don’t wanna lose it!

  2. The science provided by the so called “experts” is a fraud (hackers exposed this back in 2009 ahead of the Copenhagen climate summit) and based on computers simulations, not with outright observations as real science should dictate. The software used on these computers are proven to have non scientific validity. Many honest scientists have talked but they were smeared and their careers/lives ruined because they could not accept what one can see is plain fraud. We can observe that in many scientific discipline, especially archeology. Each nations on Earth have, nonetheless, their own duty to manage properly the environment reduce all forms of pollution and ensure the ecologic niches of their wildlife-As part of collective consciousness- but without any diktat from some obscure technocrats, with evil intent and make massive derivatives/stock profits on taxing carbon, the basic element of life as we know it, as this is their real goal.

  3. ” We have to stop money from talking. Honest, intelligent people in government would be a good start….Carol”. Those who want to put on a global scale their carbon tax have in mind to rip off the People of this planet. Look at all the tax payer subsidies on inefficient wind farm, solar and biiomass. Once again, CO2 is the food stuff of the plant and Carbon (C) is the basic fabric of life as we know it on the planet and possibly throughout the Universe. It is ironic that some, at the top of the power structure, will insist on such abuse and tax on a global scale the basic component of life. I do not deny that the climate is changing. The facts are that it has changed when we were around, actually at the end of the Younger Dryas period 11,600 years ago, it has changed when we were around (think of the medieval warming and the little ice age of 1600-1800s. It has also changed when we were not around.

    • I am surprised Carol wrote this as she is normally very informed. It goes to show that smart people can be controlled by the men at the top too.

    • Karl, I did not write the article but thought it was important to point out who exactly has paid for others to look the other way as they make money and pollute the earth. The climate change denier movement is funded by industry and conservative philanthropies that are funding this process. Similar to what big tobacco does to keep itself in business, which to ruin the health of as many as possible. So, the deniers put up money, to make more money, and in the end to keep a reversal of climate change from happening. It is the old “set up a controversy so no one will take notice of what we are really doing to the earth as we rake in money.”

    • If people had any real interest in reducing excess carbon dioxide, every current “solution” would be considered nonsense given nothing can match the effectiveness of regulating the ocean acidity and pollution, reforestations, terraforming deserts, stopping deforestations, using wood, bamboo and other organic materials to build cars, airplanes, boats, buildings, packages, to replace plastic parts,…
      Small changes that can dramatically reduce energy consumption are never mentioned, like reusable packaging, stimulus for people to work from home, better logistics and car traffic control, recycling of materials that are hard to extract,…

      This is the hardest kind of problem to solve in this irrational civilization, one the requires more technology and research, more planning, well thought solutions, reduced economic activity, smarter use of resources, observations of the entire “big picture” and enormous chains of causes and effects.

  4. Climate change, or anthropogenic climate change? This may seem absurd, but does anyone remember when the Sun appeared more yellowish. If you haven’t noticed, it’s not yellow any more; it’s white. Also, the Earth’s magnetosphere has weakened, with the magnetic North Pole dancing all over the place. The jet stream in the northern hemisphere has become far more tortuous, resulting in wide temperature variances for locations at similar latitudes. Anthropogenic climate change advocates “hang their hat” on elevated man made green house gas emissions. Conversely, are we in a 400 year cycle grand solar minimum, and if so, what calculations on its effect on global climate? The change in Earth’s climate is undeniable, but I’m skeptical when I see the same billionaires and oligarchs who’ve locked down the world’s governments, communications, and media, on board with carbon taxes, replete with credits, as the solution. Just as an example, everyone’s favorite fractional reserve banking bankster family, the Rothschilds, own a majority stake in “The Weather Channel”. A red flag from the red shield!

    • There is so much geoengineering particulate sprayed in the atmosphere nowadays. It used to be so clear (pre-1995).

  5. Utter bollocks, people who don’t believe in climate change fall into the same category as the flat earthers – idiots who have spent far too much time reading conspiracy nonsense on the internet.

    • Climate will always change with or without humans. Stop geoengineering first, it’s free. When you study human produced CO2 you see it’s insignificant. The Club of Rome in 1968 knew there would be low IQ humans who would buy it. The sun is much more powerful. It can change temperature 60 degrees or more in 24 hours. It’s obvious what controls the climate unless you are a sun denier.

  6. The climate change is happening and any person old enough to remember how it used to be will confirm this.
    But the possible causes are a complete mess, man made carbon dioxide emissions (the current villain chosen by MSM) seem to have a minimal effect when compared to geoengineering, poor urban planning, deforestation, air pollution, ocean pollution and irregular solar activity. All of these are never mentioned anywhere.
    Also another subject that never gets any attention is simple solutions like hydropower, planting trees, reducing trash production by reusable/biodegradable packaging, stopping planned obsolescence, replacing technologies that require too much energy or maintenance, better manufacturing methods and materials,…
    The entire point seems to be pushing terrible decisions to boost energy and food prices without affecting the status quo too much.
