I think 10% or less than that, just in case. as humans, we are constantly learning new things and we might find out that we were right in the first place. Besides, conserving energy can't hurt.

AGW is a scam not a hoax. A hoax implies completely untrue. This has been a scam to exaggerate in order to profit. I'd reduce funding 50%.
