1. Rush Limbaugh on his syndicated radio show, Nov. 23, 2009:

    Climate scientists are "are whoring themselves out for money, abandoning science, the pursuit of truth, in exchange for advancing a leftist political agenda. I have known this, and I have warned of this. I've not been able to prove it, however. I've simply had to rely on my powers of persuasion, my common sense, and my belief in God to convince people I'm right."

  2. Fox News contributor Jonah Goldberg, Nov. 18, 2014:

    Climate scientists are "these allegedly objective consultants who are actually rent-seeking remoras sucking on the side of the leviathan and making money off of this stuff."

  3. Former Texas Gov. Rick Perry on the presidential campaign trail, Aug. 17, 2011:

    "There are a substantial number of scientists who have manipulated data so that they will have dollars rolling into their projects."

  4. TV Meteorologist James Spann, ABC 33/40 in Birmingham, Ala., Jan. 18, 2007:

    "Billions of dollars of grant money is flowing into the pockets of those on the man-made global warming bandwagon."

  5. Former Virginia Attorney General Ken Cuccinelli, May 28, 2010:

    Cuccinelli sought to build a political career, in part, on his ultimately futile investigations into climate science. From a press release: "Use of manipulated data to apply for taxpayer-funded research grants in Virginia is potentially fraud."

  6. Sen. Jim Inhofe, R-Okla., Feb. 26, 2010:

    Climate scientists "tend to benefit [from] government grants and private sector grants."

  7. National Review commentator Iain Murray, March 11, 2011: 

    "Climate scientists are very well compensated, out-earning all other faculty outside of law in hourly-wage terms.... When climate skeptics talk about a global-warming gravy train, the numbers back them up."

  8. Roy Spencer, research scientist at the University of Alabama-Huntsville, March 2007: 

    "Climate scientists need there to be a problem in order to get funding."

  9. Former Greenpeace activist-turned-industry-spokesman Patrick Moore, Feb. 27, 2014: 

    "You can't hardly get a science grant these days without saying it has something to do with climate change."

  10. Then-House Science Chair Ralph Hall, Dec. 1, 2011:

    Climate scientists "each get $5,000 for every report like that they give out. That’s just my guess. I don't have any proof of that. But I don't believe 'em."
