A Quarter $Billion in climate change grants over three years 2010-2012

http://www.warwickhughes.com/blog/?p=2842

I see the biggest single grant was $94Million in 2010 to birth the Australian Carbon Trust Limited headed by one Michael Rann – that later transformed into Low Carbon Australia which later again was integrated into the
Clean Energy Finance Corporation (CEFC).
CSIRO seems to be the biggest single grants recipient with about $48million – followed think by the BoM with about $22million. Click more for hopefully a spreadsheet of the main details for all grants 2010-11-12
