So, how much do you think 'manmade global warming' is going to cost before these global criminals are brought to justice, and made to pay for their crimes on humanity?

'Climategate' professor Phil Jones awarded £13 million in research grants

The figure is disclosed in a leaked, internal document posted on the internet by climate change sceptics who have seized upon it as evidence of a funding "gravy train" for scientists conducting research into the area.

The grants were awarded following successful applications made by Professor Phil Jones, who headed up the Climatic Research Unit (CRU) at the University of East Anglia.

The spreadsheet listing all successful grant applications made by Professor Jones was part of the batch of leaked documents. It shows Professor Jones, along with other academics at the university, received more than 50 separate grants with a value of £13.7 million from a number of funding bodies including the European Union, NATO, and the US Department Of Energy.

And the next layer of releases starts.

Remember the Acorn videos?

That worked beautifully. Release a video and let the big wigs cry this is just yellow journalism and is not systemic to our organization.

Wait a few days and release another. Wait a few days and release another.


Well, a few of us have been talking that they have a lot more than the first release. I guess it has begun.

S&F Spread the news. The NWO roaches hate the light.

That's really not that much, especially considering there are other academics involved.

Grants aren't pocket money, they are a research budget - and cover everything from office supplies to a the salaries of grad students, lab techs, and IT people, as well as infrastructure equipment like new computers, lab equipment and anything they might need to use in the field, as well as travel budgets for everyone (ie. sending a grad student or two to a conference to present a paper), and so on.

From the sound of the article, they're looking at the grant applications of the entire department, in which case $22 million is not out of line at all. As far as the sciences go, it's middle of the road. Not a shoestring budget, but a lot less than the people doing genetics research or nuclear physics tend to operate on.
