“Many hundreds of thousands of jobs worldwide now depend on the climate crisis.”

"It is difficult to get a man to understand something, when his salary depends on his not understanding it."
~ Upton Sinclair
“Many hundreds of thousands of jobs worldwide now depend on the climate crisis.” 

• Dr. @RossMcKitrick, 50:18: - “You start building this enormous population whose job is to ‘manage the crisis,’ and also explicitly, to make sure that people are alarmed about the crisis, because this whole industry depends on the existence of the crisis.” 
• Dr. @MatthewWielicki50:51 - “If CO₂ isn’t having the huge negative impacts that we claimed it was having originally, how are we going to stay in business? How do we justify our existence if climate change isn’t this existential threat that we claimed it was over the last four decades or so?” 
• Also, at 51:38 - “The IPCC has a self-preservation instinct to show that climate change is an existential threat, otherwise there is no reason for them to be collecting the money and doing the work in the first place.” 
• Dr. Roy Spencer, 51:06 - “People like me, our careers depend on funding of climate research. This is what I’ve been doing just about my whole career; this is what the other climate researchers are doing with their whole careers. They don’t want this to end.” • Tony Heller (@TonyClimate) - “If NASA said ‘global warming is not a problem,’ their funding disappears. So, they can’t say that. I mean, you got the United Nations’ Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change. If they said the climate isn’t changing, they’d have no reason to exist.”
