    The Heartland Institute’s Talking Points on Climate Change: Science, Economics, and More promotes a mishmash of climate conspiracy theories: [cached]

    Political Realities

    […] 2 — […] the net result of CO2 limitations will be a transfer of wealth and the ceding of more authority to the United Nations as a global government. […]

    Philosophical Considerations

    […] 5 — Carbon offsetting and trading schemes can make large profits for those who run them but won’t have the claimed environmental effect. […]

    6 — Subsidies given to develop renewable energy sources such as wind power are a license to print money for their operators at the expense of the rest of us. […]

    11 — Climate change is not a scientific problem that found political support; this is about ecoactivists and politicians who found a scientific issue they believe can leverage them into power and control. The environment is a great way to advance a political agenda that favors central planning and an intrusive government. […]

    Conclusions

    […] 3 — Global warming is a major industry today. Between 1992 and 2008 the U.S. government spent $30 billion on climate change research and now spends $6 billion a year. This finances jobs, grants, conferences, international travel, and academic journals. […]

    … Duh.
