Science left out

By cutting funding to the Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences, the Conservatives are showing that they don’t care about the climate. Although this isn’t new news, I believe this is the first of many new cuts to come to the environment. Research is one thing, but acting on it is another. If this is one of the research cuts, I’d hate to see what’s going to happen to our targets in a few months or years.

When government funding for a foundation dedicated to climate research dries up at the end of the year, scientists say the aftershocks of its departure will be felt not only in Canada but by researchers around the globe.

The 2010 federal budget, unveiled this month, offered no new cash to the decade-old Canadian Foundation for Climate and Atmospheric Sciences, a group that has been financing research on everything from melting glaciers to drought on the Prairies to the thawing permafrost.

  1. Government Funding / Research Scandal
    (**Updated March 15th** - Participants)

    Visit the website that the Canadian House of Commons and many Universities across North America have as well.

    ---------------------------------------------
    It's an ingenious form of white collar crime:

    PHD credentials / contacts, an expendable family, participation of a dubious core of established professionals, Government agency funding (identity protected by Privacy Commissioner Office), unlimited funding (under the guise of research grants), PHD individuals linked with the patient (deter liability issues), patient diagnosed with mental illness (hospital committed events = no legal lawyer access/rights), cooperation of local University and police (resources and security); note the Director of Brock Campus Security.

    This all adds up to a personal ATM; at the expense of Canadian Taxpayers!
