Here’s how the global warming scam works:
Announce that you’ve discovered something called “global warming” that will destroy the earth. Make up statistics “proving” that it’s true. Apply for lots of government grants that allow you to research the problem even further.
No one has mastered this scam better than Penn State’s Michael Mann, one of the prime players in the East Anglia CRU email revelations.
American Spectator discovered that Mann is so proud of all his government grants that he actually lists them on his online resume. Here’s a list of Mann’s funded proposals:
