sweeneyThose who are sceptical of man-made global warming are often attacked because they or organisations they are connected to have taken research money from fossil fuel companies.

One organisation that last took a grant from Exxon Mobil in 2005 still finds its research ridiculed in 2009.

But environmental organisations and climate scientists find themselves put under no such scrutiny.

They can take oodles of money and still have their "findings" treated as the truth.

It is sometimes staggering how much money is to be made from climate alarmism.

John Sweeney is a scientist at at Maynooth, an Irish university not noted for its climate research. But this has not stopped Sweeney from receiving 2.6m euros for Climate Change research since 2002.

Ireland's first millionaire climate academic helpfully lists the monies received in an online resume.

Year Amount Body Project
2008 €941,000 Environmental Protection Agency Climate Change Research Programme, Co-ordination, Communication and Adaptation for Climate Change in Ireland: an Integrated Approach
2007 €96,350 Office of Public Works

Flood Studies Update Programme

€63,000 Teagasc

Impacts of climate change on agricultural pests and diseases in Ireland

€164,884 Science Foundation Ireland The impact of climate change on soil hydrology and degradation: an assessment of the vulnerabilities in Ireland
2006 €175,100 Environmental Protection Agency Handling model uncertainty
€103,200 Environmental Protection Agency Decision Support Tools for Managing the Urban Environment
2005 €133,000 Environmental Protection Agency Climate Change: Developing a National Understanding
2003 €100,000 Environmental Protection Agency Climate Change Extreme Frequency Analysis
2002 €700,000 Environmental Protection Agency Climate Change: Refining the Impacts

All Professor Sweeney's well-funded research found that Climate Change is a serious problem for Ireland.
