Skip to comments.THE LEAD CLIMATE SCIENTIST BEHIND THE OBAMA/RICO LETTER HAS SOME SERIOUS QUESTIONS TO ANSWER
Posted on 09/22/2015 8:32:56 PM PDT by Hojczyk
George Mason University Professor Jagadish Shukla is a lead author with the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change and winner of numerous awards including the International Meteorological Organization Prize, the Rossby Medal of the American Meteorological Society, and the Padma Shri National Award from the President of India. He is currently president of the Institute of Global Environment and Society and a professor of Climate Dynamics.
For his expertise, Shukla is amply rewarded by George Mason University with a salary over $250,000 a year.
Apparently, though, this isnt a full time job. It cant be because on top of this salary, from 2012 to 2014, Shukla appears to have paid himself and his wife $1.5 million from government climate grants for his part-time work via his non-profit Institute of Global Environment and Society (IGES).
IGES is an organization which gets almost all its income from US taxpayers last year a whopping $3.8 million via institutions including the National Science Foundation, NOAA and NASA. The organizations declared aim is to improve understanding and prediction of the variations of the Earths climate through scientific research on climate variability and climate predictability, and to share both the fruits of this research and the tools necessary to carry out this research with society as a whole.
A tough job, clearly, but someones got to do it. Which is why Shukla generously rewards its president himself with a salary of $330,000 for a 28 hour week and his wife (who works full time) another $166,000.

Lets call it a red line.
So what are the questions and who is going to ask them?
Virginia Tech, NC State, etc.
Many of them are doing consulting work while drawing pay from the university and the consulting pay can be even more than the university pay.
Plus many of them use grad students as slave labor to draw prints, write supporting documents, etc.
Three days a week in class and the rest working for themselves.
It is a serious scandal ignored by everyone.
The federal grants just add fuel to the fire.
The athletic departments are by far not the only corrupt groups in universities.
We’re being played for suckers. We have lots of trees in this country but I’m afraid we may need more rope.
