Fixed. Of course, scientists are above any kind of corruption too, I suppose. Do you really have such naive and beknighted views of scientists? And if scientists can be "bought" by one side, do you really believe the other side doesn't do the same?
Lindzen's point is that whether AGW is real or not, there's been no proof that it has caused any of the harm ascribed to it. He basically dismisses many of it's purveyor's as alarmists who seek to muzzle the opposing side. Scientific apostates, as it were.
