A number of prominent scientists and would-be scientists argue that humans are not responsible for global climate change and sea-level rise. Their goal is to discredit the notion that humans are responsible for sea-level rise and to prevent the expenditure of large amounts of money that will be required to respond to the sea-level rise. Much of the funding support for these individuals comes from the petroleum industry, either directly or indirectly. Their goal is to continue the high rate of useage of CO2 producing petroleum products.
