Global-Warming Deniers: Well-funded?

One should read this entire article to see how blind these idiots are to their own unquestioning advocacy. They just don't see their own alarmism, hysteria, and kool-aid-drinking zealotry.

I'm still trying to figure out where my funds are for doing this? Oh, funds? Funds? Where are you, funds?! Could someone send me some funds, please. I get NOTHING FOR DOING THIS. I do this to fight stupidity.

They only forgot to call me a "flat earther." I'm insulted. Notice below that we say we hate being called "deniers." Why would we hate being branded as Nazis associated with the, why on earth would anyone be insulted over that? clue there.

I like also how I'm part of a "THEY"--a "machine," if you will. I'm in a very exclusive club of smart people who aren't asleep and taking the spoon-feeding lying down. If I'm part of a "THEY" (a group of deniers) then why can't they also see themselves as a part of a "THEY" (a group of unquestioning alarmist advocates)?

Global-Warming Deniers: A Well-Funded Machine - Newsweek Technology -

Since the late 1980s, this well-coordinated, well-funded campaign by contrarian scientists, free-market think tanks and industry has created a paralyzing fog of doubt around climate change. Through advertisements, op-eds, lobbying and media attention, greenhouse doubters (they hate being called deniers) argued first that the world is not warming; measurements indicating otherwise are flawed, they said. Then they claimed that any warming is natural, not caused by human activities. Now they contend that the looming warming will be minuscule and harmless. "They patterned what they did after the tobacco industry," says former senator Tim Wirth, who spearheaded environmental issues as an under secretary of State in the Clinton administration. "Both figured, sow enough doubt, call the science uncertain and in dispute. That's had a huge impact on both the public and Congress."
