There is a lot of money at stake in Global Warming. From Mother Jones; Agents of Climate Change.

Since 2003, the climate lobby has grown by more than 400 percent, to a total of 2,810 lobbyists—5 to every lawmaker...

...But there are now also 138 lobbyists representing alternative energy technologies. Environmental and health lobbyists numbered fewer than 50 six years ago; there are now 176.

Still, the alternative energy and environmental lobbyists put together are outnumbered more than 7-to-1 by those for major industries...

...This year, banks like Goldman Sachs and JPMorgan Chase, as well as insurance companies and private equity firms, have 159 representatives working on the issue. The companies are eager to jump into the carbon market that a cap-and-trade system would create, which by one regulator's estimate could be worth $2 trillion.

But what motivates the Climate Change Scientists? A search for the truth? An evil plot to destroy the football players who teased them in high school and get their girls? The girls? A brilliant hoax to avoid working a 7-11 nightshift? (What would lobbyists do as a second career?) A nefarious plot to take the world over not mentioned in any e-mail? Maybe. But since we have heard from someone who interpreted a learning process as evidence of a conspiracy, not a learning process, it would be nice if at least one of those e-mails might have mentioned who the new overlords will be, whether aliens from space, fish creatures from below the sea, or Hugh Hefner.
