    "The scheme includes spending $100,000 for spreading the message in K-12 schools that "the topic of climate change is controversial and uncertain..."

    OMFG!!!!!

    $100,000

    Libertarian thinktank keeps prominent sceptics on its payroll and relies on millions in funding from carbon industry, papers suggest

    OMG! The carbon industry! :lol:

    But Anthony Watts, a weathercaster who runs one of the most prominent anti-science blogs, Watts Up With That?

    Anti-science? :cuckoo:

    The papers indicate that discrediting established climate science remains a core mission of the organisation

    Well, when the "established climate science" is a lie, that's a good thing.

    Didn't even read the article but at best it would mean you can't believe anybody on either side of the climate change argument. So now what?

    Keep in mind that this propaganda is coming from the Bolshevik British rag, "The Guardian", which is the same bird cage liner that called for the assassination of then-President G.W. Bush several years ago.

    The British version of "Pravda" strikes again!
