Michael Mann at the Zoo

I’ve got a piece up today at American Spectator which reveals the latest two taxpayer-funded projects that Penn State Climategate scientist Michael Mann has added to his curriculum vitae. Of interest is his involvement in an effort to “understand the preconceptions, attitudes, beliefs, and learning modes of zoo (nine of them) visitors regarding climate change,” and then “investigate strategies designed to foster changes in public attitudes, understandings, and behavior surrounding climate change.”

Can you tell they are losing the battle for public perception?

This project received $1 million from the taxpayer-funded National Science Foundation, although Penn State only received a sliver of that. Mann and Co. are also working with Polar Bears International on this, so you can see where that’s going.
