...independent investigation...

No such thing. The global warming industry affects everyone. No one is independent of it.

...scientists untainted by advocacy and uncompromised through receiving taxes or private funding to advance or debunk the theory

Again, no such thing. Government funding and/or corporate funding underwrite all scientists. Science is expensive. Where else could the money come from to pay for it aside from taxes or profits?

There have been hundreds of millions of tax dollars spent promoting the idea that greenhouse gas emissions cause harm and that therefore massive government intervention in the private sector is necessary. This is a straightforward conflict-of-interest. Politicians and bureaucrats allocate money to create propaganda promoting the empowerment and enrichment of politicians and bureaucrats. No one remains uninfluenced by this level of spending and advocacy.

That is very true (no truly independent people). I am always extremely irked by the leftists that claim that any research funded by private industry is prejudiced in its outcome. The same charge is true moreover for any federally funded research. The sponsors expect a certain result to justify growing government more, reducing our freedoms, and controlling the populace. The “researchers” dutifully comply and provide the needed data. I am much more inclined to trust private industry than the government. Unfortunately, many industries, including petroleum, have been thoroughly corrupted and enjoy being on the government tit.
