from wiki:

 

The suggestion of a conspiracy to promote the theory of global warming was put forward in a 1990 documentary The Greenhouse Conspiracy broadcast by Channel Four in the United Kingdom on 12 August 1990. The program was part of the Equinox series,[1] and it asserted that scientists critical of global warming theory were denied funding.[6] Although the program uses the word conspiracy in its title, Patrick Michaels downplayed the idea, saying, "It may not quite add up to a conspiracy, but certainly a coalition of interests has promoted the greenhouse theory; scientists have needed funds, the media a story, and governments a worthy cause".[7]

Writing in the National Review in 1997, journalist Ronald Bailey said, "Militia members are famously worried that black helicopters are practicing maneuvers with blue-helmeted UN troops in a plot to take over America. But the actual peril is more subtle. A small cadre of obscure international bureaucrats are hard at work devising a system of ´global governance´ that is slowly gaining control over ordinary Americans´ lives. Bailey subsequently conceded that anthropogenic global warming is real, declaring that the "debate over whether or not humanity is contributing to global warming" is over.[8]

In a speech given to the US Senate Committee on the Environment and Public Works on July 28, 2003, entitled "The Science of Climate Change",[9] Senator James Inhofe (R-Okla) concluded by asking the following question: "With all of the hysteria, all of the fear, all of the phony science, could it be that man-made global warming is the greatest hoax ever perpetrated on the American people?" Inhofe has suggested that supporters of the Kyoto Protocol such as Jacques Chirac are aiming at global governance.[10]

A Washington Post article describing the views of global warming skeptics quotes retired climatologist William M. Gray as having "his own conspiracy theory," saying, "He has made a list of 15 reasons for the global warming hysteria. The list includes the need to come up with an enemy after the end of the Cold War, and the desire among scientists, government leaders and environmentalists to find a political cause that would enable them to ´organize, propagandize, force conformity and exercise political influence. Big world government could best lead (and control) us to a better world!´" In this article, Gray also cites the ascendancy of Al Gore to the vice presidency as the start of his problems with federal funding. According to him, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration stopped giving him research grants, and so did NASA.[11]

Climate change denial is a term used to describe attempts to downplay the extent of global warming, its significance, or its connection to human behavior, especially for financial or other sectional interests. Climate change denial has been associated with the energy lobby, industry advocates and free market think tanks, often in the United States.[1][2][3][4][5] Some commentators describe climate change denial as a particular form of the general phenomenon of denialism.  The term is rarely used by those to whom it is applied.

There is nearly unanimous agreement among climate scientists that global warming is occurring and that there is a 90% or greater probability that it is due to human causes. However, political, economic, and public debate continues regarding the reality and extent of global warming and what actions to take in response. Numerous authors, including several scholars, have asserted that some conservative think tanks, corporations and business groups have engaged in deliberate denial of the science of climate change since the 1990s.

The relationships between industry funding and public climate change skepticism have at times been compared to earlier efforts by the tobacco industry to undermine what is now widely accepted scientific evidence relating to the dangers of second hand smoke, or even linked as a direct continuation of these earlier financial relationships. Aside from private industry groups, climate change denial has also been alleged regarding the statements of elected officials.

denial and lack of evidences are two different things.

 

To me so far the temperature is stable if not coooling down. winters are becoming colder. almost every winter we have tons of snow.

 

I understand the lobby link to the energy companies, but still it doesnt make sense. the companies do not appeal nor encourage to use more energy, opposite they raise their prices.

we will not stop using energy. I wont stop using computer or fridge.

 

in earlier Al Gore´s propaganda the antarctic ice cap was used to push the theory. btw, where is gore now? meanwhile we know it was one spot only that took a gradual change when in fact ice surface is increased on many other spots.

 

I am done with global warming.

the current energy companies - oil and coal would have to go out of business if we were to use renewable energy sources.
