Bamboozled Billionaires

Norman Rogers

On the American Thinker, NAS board member Norman Rogers responds to a study three billionaires have commissioned in order to promote awareness about fearful global warming projections. Here is an excerpt from his opinion essay:

Global warming is a political movement disguised as a scientific movement. The global warming movement provides money to political supporters and burnishes its image with junk science.

Like any special interest, their reports and studies are as one sided as they can get away with
