Climate Change Scandal

I have a few friends who are climate change deniers, and when I ask them what possible motivation the scientists would have to launch this worldwide conspiracy, they always tell me it's about money. Scientists are doing it because they get paid more money if it's real. (Because the kind of people that are inspired to go into science are so famously greedy?)

When I argue that the people who benefit from climate change denial are the huge oil companies, and that they are the ones spending billions to make you doubt the scientists, they scoff as if that's somehow a crazy conspiracy theory. They probably won't want to read this news in this morning's Washington Post...
