It’s the Warmists who get the big bucks from big oil and big business

Chris Field, the co-chair of an Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) working group told a St. Louis paper that American money spent on the IPCC “is a very good deal for the governments and for the world.”
Field, echoed the recent warming alarmist party line of communicating better. He said he and the other smart people like him need to explain the science better to those less fortunate. And he said “the scientific community” should be more nurturing and help “people understand” both the importance of the IPCC, and “how science works.”
Field may be hiding a bit of information that might help us “understand how his science” is paid for.
Field is burrowed into something at Stanford called the Freeman Spogli Institute for International Studies (FSI). At FSI he is working on an “FSE Project.” It’s not clear what FSE is, but…the project “is a thorough assessment of the climate consequences of converting landscapes from their previous uses to biofuels.”
An initial review of Field’s background and snout in the trough seems identical to any number of “climate scientists” (Field’s scientific background is Biological Sciences. His PhD research was on Leaf Aging in a California Shrub) sucking off the National Academy of Sciences, NASA, NOAA, and other government teats.
Their use of government grant money allows them to maintain their ideological purity. Their purity allows them to criticize any critics as “shills for Big Oil,” the standard warmist put-down.
Well, Dr Field has got some ‘splaining to do, Ricky.
The FSE project is funded by the Global Climate Energy Program (or Project, they use both on different websites). And where does GCEP get its money? “About Us” reveals “The Sponsors” are: ExxonMobil, General Electric, Schlumberger, and Toyota!
In fact, “The Project’s sponsors will invest a total of $225 million” in this Green boondoggle. Sort of like hush money–pay off the IPCC chairs and they’ll leave you alone?
While General Electric is a Global Warming shill, the other three must certainly be in the man-made global warming hall of shame.
The enviro-whackos’ constant refrain when criticized is: “You are a paid tool of Big Oil.” As Field said in his interview with the St Louis paper, “I don’t get any salary from the IPCC.”
No, Dr. Field but you do get a salary from Big Oil!
