Global Warming Hoaxer Jagadish Shukla Involved in “Largest Science Scandal in US History”

Remember Jagadish Shukla, the climate commie who has been making a fortune off the global warming hoax and who demands that skeptics be imprisoned under RICO? Conceivably he might be headed to the Big House himself:

Rep. Lamar Smith (R-TX), Chairman of the House Committee on Space, Science and Technology, has written to Professor Jagadish Shukla of George Mason University, in Virginia, requesting that he release all relevant documents pertaining to his activities as head of a non-profit organization called the Institute of Global Environment And Society.

Smith has two main areas of concern.

First, the apparent engagement by the institute in “partisan political activity” – which, as a non-profit, it is forbidden by law from doing.

Second, what precisely has the IGES institute done with the $63 million in taxpayer grants which it has received since 2001 and which appears to have resulted in remarkably little published research?

For example, as Watts Up With That? notes, a $4.2 million grant from the National Science Foundation to one of the institute’s offshoots appears to have resulted in just one published paper.

But the amount which has gone into the pockets of Shukla and his cronies runs into the many hundreds of thousands of dollars. In 2013 and 2014, for example, Shukla and his wife enjoyed a combined income in excess of $800,000 a year.

There’s more:

[F]or nearly 14 years, he, his family and his friends have been gorging themselves on taxpayers’ money at IGES; and … this money comes on top of the very generous salary he receives for doing much the same work at George Mason University (GMU).

It’s the latter detail which has led former Virginia State Climatologist Pat Michaels – one of the skeptics who might have been affected by Shukla’s proposed RICO prosecutions – to describe this as “the largest science scandal in US history.”

Under federal law, state employees may not be remunerated for doing work which falls under their state employee remit. As a Professor at GMU, Shukla is definitely an employee of the state. And the work for which he has most lavishly been rewarding himself at IGES appears to be remarkably similar to the work he does at GMU as professor of climate dynamics.

Getting paid twice to tell the same pernicious lies is a fine deal for Shuknjivela, but it hasn’t been working out so well for taxpayers.

Jagadish Shukla
If fashion crimes were punished the jacket alone would send him away.

    Prison is only for people who oppose the agenda. The prof is safe as long as he furthers the agenda.

    Didn’t Ann Coulter make a statement that just watch what liberals are accusing conservatives of, and you’ll know what they’re really up to?

    Throw climate change “deniers” in jail for their thoughts, but let this scumbucket roam free, violating laws all over the place.

    Yeah that makes sense.

    I find it interesting that this story, and many like it, play out across the academic landscape in many ways every day without hardly any push back from our elected officials. Admissions standards and quotas for colleges, student loans and financial aid, international banking rules, international jurisprudence standards, curriculum standards and United Nations regulations are just some examples of policy decisions controlled by the good professor and colleagues just like him everyday.
