an "economic stimulus" job for Michael Mann

From the editorialists of the WSJ...

As for stimulus jobs...More than $2.4 million is stimulating the career of none other than Penn State climate scientist Michael Mann.

Mr. Mann is the creator of the famous hockey stick graph...a short-term sensation when seized upon by Al Gore, was later discredited. Mr. Mann made the climate spotlight again last year as a central player in the emails from the University of East Anglia's Climatic Research Unit, which showed climatologists massaging data, squelching opposing views, and hiding their work from the public.

Mr. Mann came by his grants via the National Science Foundation, which received $3 billion in stimulus money....

So your tax dollars will continue to fund a climate scientist whose main contribution to the field has been to discredit climate science.
