UK Global Warming hoax: At least $37 million in fraud case full of fake research, deception, conflicts of interest

In a massive blow to the climate change movement and global warming alarmists, comes news that the London School of Economics recently bagged about $11 million from UK taxpayers in research grant money for its Centre for Climate Change Economics and Policy (CCCEP), an entity that has raised some $37 million since 2008.

The Daily Mail broke the story that the research for which the center was awarded the massive infusion of dollars was actually not even conducted by CCCEP. Instead, it was allegedly “stolen” from rival researchers and some of it was conducted before the taxpayer money was handed over.

“Many papers CCCEP claimed to have published to get government money weren’t about global warming, were written before the organization was even founded, or were written by researchers unaffiliated with CCCEP…The government never checked CCCEP’s supposed publication lists, saying they were ‘taken on trust,’ according to the report.”

“It is serious misconduct to claim credit for a paper you haven’t supported, and it’s fraud to use that in a bid to renew a grant. I’ve never come across anything like it before. It stinks,” Professor Richard Tol told The Daily Mail.  “Our paper had no relationship to the CCCEP. At the time, the CCCEP did not exist, and it only came into existence after the paper was published. Fraud means deception for financial gain. That is what this is.”

Several other damning realities of the climate change research funding racket are highlighted by the case, including the predetermined nature of the studies and the fact that as much as half of public sector funding depends on getting positive results. In other words, researchers have overwhelming financial incentive to “prove” their politically-charged, predetermined premises. As TheDC highlights, another particularly troubling aspect of research receiving public funds is that researchers do not have to disclose any ethical conflicts of interest.

Recent studies in the U.S. — which the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) uses to support the scientific case for its Clean Power Plan — saw the agency give $31.2 million, $9.5 million, and $3.65 million in public funds to lead authors, according to EPA public disclosures.

The author who received $3.65 million, Charles Driscoll, even admitted to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette that the result of his study was predetermined, saying “in doing this study we wanted to bring attention to the additional benefits from carbon controls.”

    Modern science progresses from research.
    It was the IPCC and extensive research from data that suggested a climate change issue was developing.
