2 New Reports on Taxpayer Funded Alarmism

by William Yeatman on August 4, 2009

Last week the Science & Public Policy Institute published “Climate Money,” a new study by Joanne Nova that documents how the U.S. federal government has spent $32 billion on alarmist global warming science since 1990.

This week, the TaxPayers’ Alliance released a new report, “Burning Our Money,” on the scale that British taxpayers’ money is being used to fund lobbying and political campaigning. It found that £38 million – $60 million – was being spent on taxpayer funded lobbying and political campaigning in just a year, most of which aims to secure greater government intervention to try to cut greenhouse gas emissions. It is about climate alarmism and related policy activism, not sober science and free-market reliance.
