Yesterday there were claims made that that a skeptic organization had received a private donation of several million dollars, and alarmists were up in arms.
Compare that to the billions of public money stolen from taxpayers to finance scams like Solyandra, and the hundreds of millions which fly around for garbage like this:
Researchers from the University of Colorado and Kansas State University have been awarded a grant for more than $850,000 to study the impacts of climate change on prairie dogs in the Boulder area.
the National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded a theater company with a grant of $700,000 to produce a stage play to “educate” the public regarding the claims of global warming.
Private donations represent freedom. Government fraud and theft is corruption and slavery.
