Obama EPA Chief Gina McCarthy: 'I would waste no time with climate deniers. If they haven't figured it out by now, what in God's name can anyone say to them that would make them figure it out. The science is overwhelming. I don't check out flat earth society, and I'm not talking to climate deniers. That's it.'
Roger Pielke Jr recently made the remarkable discovery that, in addition to his university salary from George Mason University (reported by Pielke as $250,000), Jagadish Shukla, the leader of the #RICO20, together with his wife, had received a further $500,000 more in 2014 alone from federal climate grants funnelled through a Shukla-controlled “non-profit” (Institute for Global Environment and Security, Inc.), yielding total income in 2014 of approximately $750,000. Actually, the numbers are even worse than Pielke thought. Pielke had quoted Shukla’s 2013 university salary, but his university salary had increased more than 25% between 2013 and 2014: from $250,816 in 2013 to $314,000 in 2014.
