Follow the Money

In “All the Presidents Men”, Deep Throat gives the classic advice for tracking down nefarious activity: “Follow the money!” I would like to see the Serious Fraud Office investigate the huge sums of taxpayers’ money given in recent years to all sorts of dodgy individuals and organisations loosely connected with the Global Warming Industry. In particular, the Department for International Development has given millions to that international racketeer Rajendra Pachauri and his various companies, often by devious routing of the funds through third parties. From the moment in 1988 when John Houghton managed to sell the idea of the Hadley Centre to the British government, a financial black hole started to open up. The money sloshing about has attracted all sorts of crooks and been responsible for all kinds of scientific chicanery only now emerging into the light of day.
