The University of Massachusetts Amherst has been awarded a $7.5 million federal grant over five years to lead a consortium of seven universities and host the Northeast Climate Science Center.

The climate center is one of eight in the country established by Secretary of the Interior Ken Salazar since he founded the program in 2009, according to a press release.

The center at UMass includes New England and states west to Minnesota and south to Maryland.

The money will support federal, state and other agencies by studying the effects of climate change on ecosystems, wildlife, water and other resources in the region.

UMass will partner with institutions in Wisconsin, Minnesota, New York and Massachusetts. More money for specific projects would be available, according to the release.

“The nationwide network of Climate Science Centers will provide the scientific talent and commitment necessary for understanding how climate change and other landscape stressors will change the face of the United States, and how the Department of the Interior, as our nation’s chief steward of natural and cultural resources, can prepare and respond,” Salazar said in a statement.

After a thorough research and mutual consultation we have reached the a conclusion that the sky is falling and that it is Bush’ fault.

In order to come up with a more precise explanation of these phenomena it would require an additional grant of 7.5 million dollars.

One thing I can promise you before they do any research. They will NEVER publish anything that in the slightest way hints that man-made global warming is not a serious problem. Why kill the goose that lays the golden egg?

Besides, they will only staff the place with true believers, so experiments will be devised for the sole purpose of providing more proof that AGW is occurring. And if any experiment results in contrary data, the “outlying” data will be discarded or the experiment will be redesigned.
