    The current GOP base loves their conspiracy theories including the one where all of the scientists who agree that mankind is the prime mover behind our current warming trend are either communists who want to use AGW as an excuse for giving government more power or greedy elitists who lie so they can make big money from research grants that they wouldn’t get if they dared to go against the majority viewpoint. Of course no scientist makes big bucks from research grants, few of them are political activists outside of telling the truth about their research and going against a majority viewpoint and successfully proving you’re right is one of the surest ways to make a big name for yourself in science.
