I see this argument a lot but it never makes sense to me. Ok so there's a lot of money in the green industry. There is an obscenely greater amount of money in "anti-green" industries...literally the most profitable industries on the whole planet. If money is your indicator of corruption then you have the wrong bad guy.
"Any scientist that claims they know one way or the other is LYING. They are lying because they want to be right, or get grant money, or corporate money. Period. "
There are things that can be tested and unequivocally proven through science and need to be presented as such. I don't know enough about the climate to claim they're 100% correct but the idea no scientist can be completely sure about something is bunk.
As for Stephen Hawking he's a theoretical physicist. The field of study is too different to be compared to climate science, or biology or geology or anything else that deals with our material world for that matter.
