Dr. Patrick Michaels: climate change denyer, industry lackey

Dr. Patrick Michaels is possibly the most prolific and widely-quoted climate change skeptic scientist. He has admitted receiving funding from various fossil fuel industry sources. His latest book, published in September 2004 by the Cato Institute, is titled: Meltdown: The Predictable Distortion of Global Warming by Scientists, Politicians, and the Media.

Michaels is the Chief Editor for the "World Climate Review," a newsletter on global warming funded by the Western Fuels Association. Dr. Michaels has acknowledged that 20% of his funding comes from fossil fuel sources: ( Known funding includes $49,000 from German Coal Mining Association, $15,000 from Edison Electric Institute and $40,000 from Cyprus Minerals Company, an early supporter of People for the West, a "wise use" group. He recieved $63,000 for research on global climate change from Western Fuels Association, above and beyond the undisclosed amount he is paid for the World Climate Report/Review. According to Harper's magazine, Michaels has recieved over $115,000 over the past four years from coal and oil interests. Michaels wrote "Sound and Fury" and "The Satanic Gases" which were published by Cato Institute. Dr. Michaels signed the 1995 Leipzig Declaration. In July of 2006, it was revealed that the Intermountain Rural Electric Association "contributed $100,000 to Dr. Michaels." Michaels has apparently been having such a hard time funding for his climate denial as of late, that various industry groups had to hold a fundraiser for him!

Scientist who have and continue to deny the links between fossil fuels and global warming are particularly despicable. They have set us decades behind in fighting climate change by convincing everyone from the average housewife to the top dogs in government that global warming is nothing to worry about. Now look where we are at!

Bravo - this is an excellent resource! Now we can put faces (and also, it seems, bow-ties) to the people directly accountable for climate change.

I hope keep this up!

There is something very Third-Reich about your site. Perhaps you would like this guy to wear an armband. He is, after all responsible for the ills of society.

Y'know, I see a lot of rhetoric and no actual science.

Yes, these industry leaders cause pollution. The real question is the label of 'climate criminal.' Seeing as there is significant debate about the reality of global climate change, with the preponderance of evidence against it, it would behoove you to study the evidence better.

Regarding scientists being funded by industry, I have two points. Firstly, that, yes, industry has an agenda. However, are you then arrogant enough to claim that the environmental movement does not have its own agenda? WHy is money from coal 'bad,' yet money from Greenpeace 'good?' What really ought to matter is the quality of the reports being produced.
Also, have you considered that climate skeptics are funded by industry because they are refused funds by the dogmatic, die-hard green movements? Without equal funding, truely accurate research is stifled.

All I see is rhetoric; anyone can create that. I suggest you take a long, hard look at the data, rather than the media spin.

Rhetoric? There is no longer any debate nor has there been for several years. As suggested, let's take a long hard look at the data: The IPCC's distinguished body of climate scientists' (and winners of the Nobel Prize) synthesis report issued Nov. 2007 sounding the last warning before systems begin to collapse. If the "climate criminals" do not immediately change their economics the people of Bangladesh are condemned to die...and they will be the first of billions to come. The fatalities will include our children and grandchildren, and maybe ourselves. It's too late to save the 185,000 who have died as a direct result of global climate change. Let's stop over-consuming water, fuel and other resources just so a few "privileged" can continue their decadent and consumptive lifestyles. If they won't stop using water, fuel and other resources let's convince them they are risking our very lives!

No evidence? only rhetoric?
