A secret organisation has been accepting large donations to undermine the science of global warming.
According to The Independent newspaper, certain groups have been involved in funneling large amounts of money towards counteracting claims of climate change and global warming on behalf of anonymous billionaire donors with high stakes in fossil fuel industries.

Sociologist Robert Brulle has estimated that more than $500 million has been given to such organisations over the last ten years. "We really have anonymous giving and unaccountable power being exercised here in the creation of the climate countermovement," he said. "There is no attribution, no responsibility for the actions of these foundations to the public."
A secretive funding organisation in the United States that guarantees anonymity for its billionaire donors has emerged as a major operator in the climate "counter movement" to undermine the science of global warming, The Independent has learnt.

This thread could easily be called billionaires secretly fund attack on humanity and the climate. why should we care where funding comes from anyway?government climate scienitsts have swallowed 100 billion dollars with their research compared to "millions" for the skeptical side. governments have a vested interest in global warming since it will generate massive revenues for them. yet the title of this thread implies that david is the goliath. ...furthermore, if the funding is secret, then how could that possibly influence the science?

Not really interested in who what or why. Just in stopping the abuses.

...there has been no global warming for 16 years... The trick to get that "fact" depends on picking 16 years rather than 15 or 17. 16 years ago was a year with a big El Nino temperature peak. The year before and the year after didn't have such a factor, so if you measure from either of those your "no increase" claim evaporates.

there is no empirical evidence that man is causing global warming - just ask, and you will not receive. it was always about politics and belief. ALL Empirical data points the finger at human involvement in both Global Warming and Climate Change. The Jury is IN and the verdict is now irrefutable.Mankind has to change its ways or the suffering will be unstoppable. It is the AGW deniers that are at the fringe of science, and inacapable of absorbing what the data proves. Anybody heard from Lord Monckton recently?

Any donation of funds to either side would assist in finding out the plain and simple fact and either side could find a way to stop or slow the effects. At any rate if they can do either to save their wallets or "benefit mankind" they'll be assisting the world in doing so. I don't understand why all the blowout arguments between people. The only reason I'm a skeptic is because I'm already paying a carbon tax which has been packaged by the government the same way the GST (Goods & Services Tax) was packaged to the country. That and I have seen/read quite alot about england tempretures in the... [More]

U.N.: World temperatures maintain the heat of global warming DURBAN, South Africa – World temperatures keep rising, and are heading for a threshold that could lead to irreversible changes of the Earth, the United Nations weather office said Tuesday. 2011 is tied for the 10th-hottest year since records began in 1850, the office said in its annual assessment of average global temperatures. Arctic sea ice has also shrunk to record-low volumes this year, it said. The 13 hottest years on the books all have occurred in the last 15 years. "The science is solid and proves unequivocally that the world ... [More]
