Spotted a short article in 'i' today.

It says that the incoming Danish government is to scrap his £1m a year funding.
They don't want to fund specific 'ideological' researchers.

About time in my opinion, the man is an obstructionist and obfuscator.

Actually looking at the Copenhagen Post article, it looks like his post was politically funded.
That is pretty bad.

It will be interesting to see how Watts spins this.  "Dogmatic wamrists deny funding to opposing views on climate change..."  Ugh, I'd make a hopeless spin doctor, it is an art spining and lying to pople isn't it?

The awkward part is that they have been claiming that "warmists" ride a gravy train, meanwhile we have in short order seen Soon and now Lomborg receiving (not personally in the case of the latter) over one million dollars to forward an ideological position. 

Looks like Lomborgs' group has been around since 2002, any idea how many years they have received ~1 million pounds of funding?

"It's a work of the Communist Danish Wind Energy Consortion that recently prevented, with the assistance of the Dutch Extreme Left-Wing, the prominent skeptic F.Singer from entering the halls of academia in Netherlands. I'm very glad of Solyndra going down just to prevent this happening on our dearly loved country of independent values and ethos. Speaking of wind energy, the communities endorsing these revolting towers of bird killers should be cut from the grid for the troubles they cause on the normal operations in the grid, as well as to air traffic, police helicopters and such...  did you know that even emergency helicopters are not allowed to approach these, so if you get hurt near one, you're on your own."

(As we here know Nazis were left-wing, which is why they had such a formidable capacity to produce military appliances)
