I’ll swear that you are the Queen of England for that much money! I’ll carry Al Gore around on my back for a year for half that amount! I’ll give up my scientific mindset and sell myself as a whore for a quarter of that amount! But that is the amount of money that the government has spent on policies related to climate change.
“The US Government has spent more than $79 billion of taxpayers’ money since 1989 on policies related to climate change, including science and technology research, administration, propaganda campaigns, foreign aid, and tax breaks…. [And global warming alarmists attack scientists who dissent by arguing that Exxon-Mobile paid $23 million to skeptics.] Carbon trading worldwide reached $126 billion in 2008. Banks, which profit most, are calling for more. Experts are predicting the carbon market will reach $2 – $10 trillion.”
Global Warming is a scam. But it is also big business. HUGE! $2-$10 trillion is a huge incentive to lie, to obfuscate, to pontificate and otherwise shade the truth and come up with “scientific models” that alarm people. Or to make phony-ass documentaries. Suckers!
John Doe is a proud member of the skeptics who have never, ever bought into this global warming crap. Not even for a second. But hey, at least I learned a new word. “Monopsony.” Monopoly means a seller who controls the market, monopsony means a purchaser who controls the market. Here, the Government only purchases goods and services from idiot whores who agree with the Government’s position that climate change is anthropogenic. (Did I mention that you saps are suckas for buying this shit?)
