Arctic is warmest it's been in 10,000 years
RE: Arctic is warmest it's been in 10,000 years
2017 numbers (links to sources I pulled the numbers from)

Federally funded climate research: $2.8 Billion dollars

Number of climate scientists in the USA: 31,000
Average money per scientist if split equally: $90,322
- University overhead (avg is 28%): $25,290 Universities charge costs for space, electric, general support that come out of grant money.

Total per climate scientist: $65,032
This is to cover research (computer, field time, data acquisition, materials, etc), pay post docs and technicians (Universities don't cover their pay), pay grad students depending on the university and program, pay themselves (Depending on university - for example, I'm in biomedical research and the university pays the salary of 4 administrative people. We have approximately 110 other staff, professors, students, post docs at last count, every single one having to be paid for by grants), and so on.

Number of climate scientists who say climate change is real: 97%

Please, tell me again how the scientists are in it for the "big grant money"
