Skip to comments.Sons of Climategate: Dodgy Scientists Caught Red-Handed by FOIA Lawsuit
Posted on 05/15/2016 9:37:02 PM PDT by george76
The dodgy scientists who wrote to resident Obama and Attorney General Loretta Lynch demanding that RICO laws be used to prosecute climate skeptics just got even more badly screwed.
Already one of them George Mason University professor Jagadish Shukla is under Congressional investigation for what has been described as the largest science scandal in US history.
Now the background to their footling conspiracy has been exposed thanks to a FOIA request by the Competitive Enterprise Institute which has forced them to release their private letters and emails.
Like Climategate, it makes for some fascinating reading, mainly because yet again it shows the climate alarmist establishment in such a terrible light.
Remember, these guys are supposed to be the experts on whose judgment our political leaders base their policies; every year they snaffle millions and millions of dollars worth of grant funding courtesy of the U.S. taxpayer some of them may even be teaching your kids.

The George Mason scandal is the tip of the iceberg.
Another imported crook; couldn’t George Mason find an American to be a professor?
Not to mention that this Hindu crook wants Obama to jail people who mock man-made global warming.
Here’s how this POS has been stuffing his pockets with taxpayer money:
” In 2001, the earliest year thus far publicly available, in 2001, in addition to his university salary (not yet available, but presumably about $125,000), Shukla and his wife received a further $214,496 in compensation from IGES (Shukla -$128,796; Anne Shukla $85,700). Their combined compensation from IGES doubled over the next two years to approximately $400,000 (additional to Shuklas university salary of say $130,000), for combined compensation of about $530,000 by 2004.
Shuklas university salary increased dramatically over the decade reaching $250,866 by 2013 and $314,000 by 2014. (In this latter year, Shukla was paid much more than Ed Wegman, a George Mason professor of similar seniority). Meanwhile, despite the apparent transition of IGES to George Mason, the income of the Shuklas from IGES continued to increase, reaching $547,000 by 2013. Combined with Shuklas university salary, the total compensation of Shukla and his wife exceeded $800,000 in both 2013 and 2014. In addition, as noted above, Shuklas daughter continued to be employed by IGES in 2014; IGES also distributed $100,000 from its climate grant revenue to support an educational charity in India which Shukla had founded.”
Global Warming Petition Project Scientists who reject AGW
31,487 American scientists have signed this petition, including 9,029 with PhDs
Dear fellow letter signers. Shukla and I respectfully request that you send us your private email address. If you prefer to leave it in a voice message, call me at [redacted by William Tell]. Thank you, Edward Maibach, MPH, PhD------------------------------------------
This letter suggests full justification for a Freedom of Information request to obtain all email addresses provided as a result of this letter and then further requests for relevant documents sent to or received from any of those email addresses.
The conspiracy to deny our children and grandchildren their liberty and wealth by means of fraudulent "science" has gone on long enough. What possible innocent explanation could exist for gathering private email addresses?
The letter was dated October 2, 2015. You would have thought that by then people would have learned not to conduct their nefarious business by email.
4 am bump
The most important numbers of cash were more important than degrees.
OK!! Everybody pay attention!
Lesson for today:
1. The sun is 1,300,000 times as big as the earth.
2. The sun is a giant nuclear furnace that controls the climates of all its planets.
3. The earth is one of the suns planets.
4. The earth is a speck in comparison to the size of the sun.
5. Inhabitants of the earth are less than specks.
Study Question: How do less-than-specks in congress plan to control the sun?
Maybe we could send those two to India for payback.
