The Funding Angle

CRU Files Betray Climate Alarmists' Funding Hypocrisy
"In addition to four government sources of potential CRU funding, it lists an equal number of "energy agencies" they might put the bite on. Three -- the Carbon Trust, the Northern Energy Initiative, and the Energy Saving Trust -- are U.K.-based consultancy and funding specialists promoting "new energy" technologies with the goal of reducing carbon dioxide emissions. The fourth -- Renewables North West -- is an American company promoting the expansion of solar, wind, and geothermal energy in the Pacific Northwest.

Needless to say, all four of these CRU "potential funding sources" have an undeniably intrinsic financial interest in the promotion of the carbochondriacal reports CRU is ready, willing, and able to dish out ostensibly on demand. And equally obvious, Jones is all too aware that a renewable energy-funded CRU will remain the world’s premiere authority on the subject of anthropogenic global warming (AGW) despite any appearance of conflict.

And yet, no such latitude has ever been extended to scientists in the skeptical camp."
"The issue is this: Just how is it that funding from renewable energy interests evades charges of bias, yet subsidies from traditional power entities scream bloody conflict when each is equally friendly to the recipient’s cause?"
"And it has become abundantly clear that it is not, nor was it ever, the AGW skeptics who were the liers. Or the cheaters.

Or the bought-and-paid-for hypocrites."

Included in the leaked files is the following document:

In this document, Shell International offers a corporate bribe in order to encourage research into CDMs (carbon offsets that transfer 3rd-world credits to first world credits). Shell is apparently intensely interested in the money to be made from carbon offsets.


Shell’s interest is not in basic science. Any work they support must have a clear and immediate relevance to ‘real-world’ activities. They are particularly interested in emissions trading and CDM.

I'd really like to read the "document" myself, but the URL you have provided is incomplete. Can you try it again? Also attach a name to yourself. I don't much like anonymous posters. Belies a bit of cowardice, if you ask me.

Never mind. I googled it instead. But I really would prefer you use a name of some sort. Too many anonymouses makes for confusion and uncertainty.
