He is also a fellow of the Royal Meteorological Society and the editor-in-chief of the scientific journal National Weather Digest. He is an outspoken global warming skeptic, acknowledging that human activity contributes to global warming but putting more faith in the view that it is a natural phenomenon. Lupo's skepticism and receipt of funding ($750 per month) from the Heartland Institute have generated controversy. Lupo says the work Heartland pays him to do does not directly relate to causes of global warming, but rather "interpret[ing] them [scientific studies] in a form that somebody can understand and digest." He has also said that he is not violating any conflict-of-interest rules by receiving this money.
