    That is a great question. An overwhelming majority of scientists work for the common good of society. You will never hear a scientist say they are in it for the money. However, as always, if a person or group have enough money, they will be able to find a scientist or pseudoscientist to say whatever they want, even if is contrary to all evidence present in the scientific community. A perfect example of this is the climate change debate in the U.S. There is no debate within the scientific community, but within the public arena, groups tied to wealthy donors have raised enough contrary claims from their own 'experts' to make the public question all scientific data.
