Obviously the field of AGW will attract actual conspiracies like photocopiers attract naked bottoms.
Listing these conspiracies in strict order of them floating into my awareness gives; Greedy Geek Scientists of the Pro-AGW camp, Greedy Geek Scientists of the AGW-denier camp, the radio-active Nuclear Power lobby, the Black Lung Coal lobby, the Fundie Christian Texas/Wahabi Moslem Saudi Axis of Oil Producers, the Jewish Bankers Goldman Sachs/Al Gore/Carbon Trading Scheme, the Socialist Small is Beautiful Greenies, the Mafia Waste Disposal Institute, the New York Buddhist Institute, the Mass Media Exciting Sound Bite Production Vat and the Polar Bear Preservation Society.

My current favourite conspiracy is

Prognosis 2012
which paints a future filled with covert authoritarian scenarios.
When I remove what are most likely the products of paranoia and over-simplification whats left? A hint of an elite that, for what-ever motivation, wants to control consumption globally? Whats a good Histrionic name for these possible people?

I've written this before on RSP, but I do it again because it's so funny:

I ran into this American environmental activist I used to know. He had laid off the whole thing altogether, feeling it as he had been fooled, like a believer who suddenly realises there's no God.

"What happened?"

"I don't know man. I just think this Al Gore is just getting something out of this. I think he might be collecting all these e-mail addresses to sell them to spam companies."

Its up to 7 pages so far.
The joints really jumpin'.

With many of the groups in the OP most likely or certainly involved in PR campaigns I wonder if the shadow plays we get presented with leave any room for accurate analysis of AGW.

The real trick to this is that Al Gore doesn't need to collect email addresses. When he invented the Internet, he put a super secret spy network in place to steal your email, phone number, and look deep into your very soul.

Subtle. Indicate a name but appear to have no buy-in to the topic. Will Homeland miss that one? sauron
