Right, but you said that the global warming folks are asking for unnecessary
spending of *trillions*.  Where would those trillions go?  I don't see Al
Gore becoming richer than Bill Gates off carbon credits.  Neither do I see
the UN gaining any more power via the IPCC.  If anything, the existing
climate treaty (i.e. the Kyoto protocol) has completely sidestepped the UN.

I guess what I'm troubled by is the fact that you seem to be stating that
there's some kind of deliberate malice on the part of those stating that
anthropogenic climate change is real.  I don't see malice.  I see a fair
amount of incompetence, but incompetence exists in every discipline.

I'm going to assume this is a serious question.

You could start with the people enriching themselves off of carbon credits.
 Al Gore, for one obvious example.  You could continue with the people that
think the entire world should be ruled by a bureaucracy called the UN.  You
could go on with the "scientists" who get millions of dollars worth of
grants to "study" the problem and propose solutions.

Are there people on the opposing side who benefit from what you call
scaremongering?  Of course there are.  But the claims of the global warming
crowd are unsupported by the data (not *their* data, because they have
clearly skewed it to support their claims, as is proven both by their emails
and their program code) but by the real data, unmassaged.

You claim that trillions of dollars will need to be spent.  If its such a
scam, then who is scamming us?  The UN IPCC?  A mysterious cabal of
alternative energy companies?  The Trilateral Commission?
