A big bite of every research grant goes to the university as ‘overhead.’ So the university bureaucracy is intensely focused on bringing in more research grants. For the researcher, money means promotion, status, and the means to engage in expensive research projects… The most lucrative research is to predict an ecological catastrophe. Thus, we have overpopulation, acid rain, the ozone hole, and global warming.” – Norman Rogers, “Scientocracy busts open the motivation behind global warming politics” – American Thinker, October 28th, 2019.

“(Alberta Energy Minister Sonya) Savage says that the company has been progressively shifting its efforts towards the U.S. in large part due to harmful climate policies which make it more difficult for oil companies to operate in Canada. She says that she hopes that this company’s decision to leave the country for greener pastures in the U.S. serves as a wake-up call for politicians in Ottawa.” – Dylan Gibbons, “After Trudeau reelection, Canadian oil company immediately moves its headquarters to U.S.” – The Post Millennial, October 31st, 2019.
