...billions and billions and billions of dollars flows the other way.
And this doesn't count the billions of dollars in income that the marketers of fear like Greenpeace and the WWF have made in trading on climate change concerns.
The WWF internationally took only five years up to around 2005 to make over $2 billion US. Greenpeace took twice as long to make a similar amount of money.
Extraordinary amounts of money in anybody's language.
As I understand though, the WWF no longer publishes its accounts online. Wonder why?
And yet it is the chicken feed handed out by Exxon-Mobil that everybody talks about.
Ask yourself this though, who has all of the high-profile and very well paid spokespeople? It isn't the sceptics is it?
Here in Australia the only people who's full time job it is to speak and lobby about climate change, whether for Greenpeace or the WWF or the Climate Institute etc, are all on the alarmist side.
Whereas the sceptics are either that unusual beast, a conservative journalist like Andrew Bolt or people, very often retired, blogging in their spare time.
There are powerful transnational interests seeking to influence the debate on climate change, (or more accurately, seeking to prevent any debate), which are very well funded. They are Greenpeace, the WWF and similar organisations.
