Probably more for being pro-climate change.
How do you figure? Solar panels are pennies on the ten thousand dollar bill next to oil. Fellating Exxon is a thoroughly bipartisan endeavor - Obama has opened up more land to drilling than Bush and Cheney, including the eastern seaboard. He brags that the U.S. is producing more oil and gas than it has the ability to transport to market. Biden's son is a top executive at Ukrainian energy company. BP was allowed to savage the Gulf of Mexico and get away with paying a fraction of the costs of mitigation. Politicians from both parties fall over themselves in the rush to pledge their love of coal.
Government has a heavy bias toward fossil fuels. If there was a bias resulting from government-funded science grants, it would be against climate change, not for it.
Case in point: just look at the GAO Climate Change report, detailing expenditures on "Funding for climate change activities", by far the most money goes to the Dept. of Energy, which of course doesn't spend a penny on actual climate science, but on things like "energy conservation" (ooh, evil) and "Fossil Energy Research
and Development "
Yes you read that right. The tax that according to the denialist PR gets wasted on climate research to quite a large extend goes into "Fossil Energy Research".
