Reality Check

Russ Steele

Our local lefty blogger proudly posted this bit of crap from Grist in responses to the Gleick vs Heartland criminal action:

Here is the reality on the funding disparity:

H/T to Watts Up With That for Josh’s graphic. Yes which makes the most sense?

With the truth on your side it takes a lot less money to make your case. The Heartland team was making huge strides in bring climate change truth to the public. That is why they were attacked by an un ethical scientist who could not make a scientific case against Heartland scientist, so he resorted to the typical progressive tactic — ignore the facts, attack the messenger.

    There is a problem with the top graph. There should be an underground pipeline (a dashed line would do) from the oil companies big pile of cash to the envirozealots so the envirozealots can lobby to close down coal fired power plants and the oil companies can sell more natural gas leading to a bigger pile of money for the oil companies. That’s how its been working the last few years hasn’t it?

      Yes, about 25 million of reality from a gas company to Greenpeace to lobby against coal fired power plant and low and behold five coal plants will close in PA alone this year.
