Update: My Funding for 2017 [new non-news 7/31]

Since this blog is almost entirely on the topic of dissecting the accusation that funding (otherwise comprehended as outright bribery) has corrupted skeptic climate scientists, it is incumbent upon me to disclose and detail anything relating to money I receive which even has the smallest appearance of possible corruption. Such disclosures are always in the “My Funding” section here, and this is the 2017 announcement. Continue reading

Small Funding-related Update

One person has already called me “a paid propagandist working for the fossil-fuel-industry-financed Heartland Institute”. At a climate alarmist site I sometimes comment at, another person has said (full context here) Heartland pays me to “side-step, deflect, distract, obfuscate, and deny the truth” (that person being someone who – unless I’ve missed it somewhere – who has yet to dispute a solitary detail I have here at GelbspanFiles or in any of my online articles).

However, this is also a can’t-miss opportunity to put that entire enviro-activist notion to the ultimate test, with an outright challenge to billionaire Tom Steyer to consider a far more chancy gamble than the $100 million he’s pledged toward Senate and gubernatorial races that “attack climate-change deniers” – a gamble that either makes or totally busts the two decade-old accusation that skeptics are paid to lie and spread misinformation.

I am Funded for another Year. Plus, the Visual-Audio Analogy I wish to Instill in my Critics’ Minds

I already disclosed last year in the “About” tab here how I am funded with a strings-free poverty level grant. Its time span is about to end, but I will have a new one for this year at exactly the same amount, unless my benefactors choose to add a bit to it later. Folks on the Al Gore side of the issue have been too quick from the inception of this whole mess to insinuate skeptics are paid to lie and spread misinformation. In my particular case, folks hoping to use that insinuation against me would do so at their own peril. Continue reading
