Pretty cheap for scientists. They have been raking in millions to cure impotence. Why is it a grant when it is something people are in favor of and a bribe when it is against your thought? What would we classify the $90,000 in Jefferson's refrigerator?

What would we classify the $90,000 in Jefferson's refrigerator? It would mean the money is frozen until further notice.

Right wingers offer bribes to dispute global warming

An ultra-conservative Washington think tank with direct ties to the Bush Administration is offering a $10,000 bribe to any scientist or economist who will dispute a global warming report released today by the United Nation’s top scientific panel.

pba, this is a pretty sick example of propoganda. AEI said they were offering PAYMENT. Capitol Hill Blue stepped across the line Calling "Payment" a "Bribe." The implicaton of the word bribe is that a nefarious purpose will be served. Payment implies that a job, done to specification, will be conpensated.
I agree with both you and Capitol Hill Blue that there is NO LEGITIMATE SCIENCE THAT DEBUNKS HUMAN INTERVENTION IS AT WORK IN GLOBAL WARMING.
But to say that payment for finding that legitimate evidence is bribery only says that Capitol Hill Blue (and you, by quoting them) are opposed to the discovery of any possible evidence that global warming is BEYOND human capability or culpability.
The Report should have read, An ultra-conservative Washington think tank with direct ties to the Bush Administration is offering a $10,000 Payment(not bribe) to any scientist or economist who will dispute a global warming report released today by the United Nation’s top scientific panel.

The disgusting part in this is that Exxon has been doing this for decades and the corporate media repeats these lies as if they are facts without explaining that these scientists are being paid. It’s been going on for years.
The corporate media are huge corporations that promote the interests of corporations, “they are not for the people,” as their spin would have us believe. They are more like referee’s in TV Wrestling matches. You know, where the big guy mauls the little guy but somehow the referee never sees it, or only sees it when it’s too late.
We have to wonder, are they really an outside source or “just part of the show”?
Right, the polluters have been doing this for as long as the issue has been current. WELL, that is no excuse for Calling a PAYMENT a bribe. The American Enterprize Institute is TRYING to support it's position, and there are no scientists VOLUNTEERING to help. GOD SAYS IF YOU WANT TO WIN THE LOTTERY YOU HAVE TO BUY A TICKET. You might not win the lottery. but you have to buy a ticket to compete.
AIE is trying to buy a ticket. THEY MIGHT NOT WIN, BUT WITHOUT THE SCIENCE, THEY CAN'T COMPETE.

THERE DOES seem to be NO SCIENCE supporting their position. THEY WANT SOME AND ARE WILLING TO BUY IT.

I see your point on Calling a PAYMENT a bribe.
