So first, they didnt develop nuclear weapons because of "money". They sent a letter to US president at that time to encourage him to develop this field because they knew nazis where working on it and knew it would lead to a great danger if they got hold of the technology before them. It was impulsed by a scientific knowledge for a protective purpose. Now, where's the money involved ? Should I remember you they spent 4 years in the desert, seeing no one like prisoners ? Yeah, sure, great condition. They are so selfish.
Now to your point :
Ok so 99% of scientists are paid by... who exactly ? For what gain ? Fear ?
While economies will suffer thousand of billions of losses, while presidents in democracies are elected based on their employement / economic results (guess what, global warming and its consequences will destroy a lot of jobs), you think they paid 99% of scientists everywhere on the planet, faked satellites datas (theses infos are public btw and come from different countries / continents, much conspiracy...) ?
