GOP US Presidential Contender Gov Rick Perry -- Scientists Manipulated Climate Change Data for Money
As you know, Texas Gov. Rick Perry recently declared his candidacy for President of the United States, campaigning as a conservative Republican who does not believe climate change is human-induced. On the presidential campaign trail in New Hampshire Wednesday, he kicked the rhetoric up a notch claiming "a substantial number of scientists [have] manipulated data to keep the money rolling in ":
Fielding audience questions after brief remarks that dwelled largely on fiscal and economic issues, Perry encountered one skeptic who said he was quoting from Perry's 2010 book, Fed Up!: Our Fight to Save America from Washington
, then asked whether misgivings about climate science fueled distrust of federal research in general.
"I do believe that the issue of global warming has been politicized," Perry answered. "I think there are a substantial number of scientists who have manipulated data so that they will have dollars rolling into their projects. I think we're seeing it almost weekly or even daily, scientists who are coming forward and questioning the original idea that man-made global warming is what is causing the climate to change. Yes, our climates change. They've been changing ever since the earth was formed."
In the video below, Perry comes in at around the :53 mark:
