    Recently, 359 billion dollars were spent in a single year to fight climate change!:ack-1::ack-1::ack-1: But the UN says that the climate is getting worse and 5 trillion a year is needed!

    Follow the (Climate Change) Money | RealClearPolitics

    This means, of course, as the article astutely points out, that climate scientists will have every incentive to produce data to continue lining the pockets of the climate change industry. Well doy!

    Does a single climate crusader ever stop to consider what a 5 trillion dollar expenditure means? Moreover, do the ever consider where these funds will come from? The same people who scream about world hunger!:bye1::bye1:

    Follow the $$ folks.....and it becomes clear that you sure as hell can count on climate change getting worse and worse no matter how much money is spent!:abgg2q.jpg:

    Maybe it should be pointed out to them that if they allow climate change to continue, then world hunger will go down as longer growing seasons and more arable land become available.

    And if scientists were as greedy as you accuse them of being, how could you trust ANYTHING they have discovered?

    I see there is no change in shithole Africa

    war/conflicts/etc have a more immediate affect on food production
    Climate Change is one of the least of our worries

    Wars do not have as wide an effect. Climate change is global after all.

    Like any progressive, costs dont matter to Crick or any other of these asshats.

    Meanwhile....people suffer.

    Like the saying goes.....ideals are peaceful. History is violent. These people are no different than those who worked in the gulag....no soul....no compassion. Mental cases.

    Was curious projects they chose to fund ....that much money should produce something tangible other than wealth redistribution.....trying to give them benefit of the doubt here .....

    Holy fuck.....

    This is why you've spent half of your life on a ship in the middle of nowhere handling test tubes. That's where asocial people should be....away from society. People like you are dangerous....you think in a manner not unlike those who shoot up schools. Mixed up on the big picture. It's a thinking fuck up with these people ( not related to intelligence btw ). These are the people that need to be watched closely.
