Apparently you're talking to yourself.

The question isn't whether these anti-scientists' salaries are high or low, but rather whether or not they are dependent on toeing the line of the CAGW alarmism dogma.
I remember when the movie "Jurassic Park" came out, and there were some suggesting that a small portion of the profits from the movie should go to paleontology. At that time, it was said that a million dollars was more than the total of annual grants for all paleontologists worldwide.
Is climatology as a whole supported by such a paltry annual sum? I'd guess not. In general, pure science doesn't get much funding. But I would guess the CAGW alarmist "climatologists", as a whole, get a lot more than most fields do, because of how successful their alarmist propaganda has been.
There has been an unrelenting quarter century of one-sided indoctrination of the western world by the media and by various scientists and governments concerning a coming carbon dioxide (CO_2 ) induced global warming disaster. These warming scenarios have been orchestrated by a combination of environmentalists, vested interest scientists wanting larger federal grants and publicity, the media which profits from doomsday scenario reporting, governmental bureaucrats who want more power over our lives, and socialists who want to level-out global living standards.--Dr. William Gray, leading hurricane expert
However, I doubt money is the main motive of the anti-scientists. I think it's more of a motive for the politicians involved in, for instance, the IPCC. For the anti-scientists, it seems to be much more a pseudo-religion than any profit motive.

But nice attempt to drag the discussion off-topic, Supamark.
