Found: A “Green Job”

Obama’s “Green Jobs Czar” — the self-avowed communist and “rowdy black nationalist” Van Jones — was driven out of office by Glenn Beck’s exposés having spend $60 billion to create exactly 0 green jobs. As even the Obama sycophants at Newsreek sheepishly admitted, no one could even define a green job at the time. But now one has been found — and it is “stimulating” the economy with $2.4 million of our money. The lucky recipient of the green job is none other than discredited Global Warming hoaxer Michael Mann:

Mr. Mann is the creator of the famous hockey stick graph, which purported to show some 900 years of minor temperature fluctuations, followed by a spike in temperatures over the past century. His work, which became a short-term sensation when seized upon by Al Gore, was later discredited. Mr. Mann made the climate spotlight again last year as a central player in the emails from the University of East Anglia’s Climatic Research Unit, which showed climatologists massaging data, squelching opposing views, and hiding their work from the public.

It looks like Comrade Obama’s obscene Porkulus looting spree saved or created a job after all — by showering Mann with grant money:

Mr. Mann came by his grants via the National Science Foundation, which received $3 billion in stimulus money. Last June, the foundation approved a $541,184 grant to fund work “Toward Improved Projections of the Climate Response to Anthropogenic Forcing,” which will contribute “to the understanding of abrupt climate change.” Principal investigator? Michael Mann.

He received another grant worth nearly $1.9 million to investigate the role of “environmental temperature on the transmission of vector-borne diseases.” Mr. Mann is listed as a “co-principal investigator” on that project. Both grants say they were “funded under the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009.”

Just as no one is asking what Van Jones did with our $60 billion meant to create green jobs, there seem to be no demands that the con artist Mann be cut off from the pipeline of free federal money.

But not to worry: Penn State — into which Mann’s climate swindle has diverted $zillions in public funds — is holding a top secret investigation into his misconduct. I’m sure the university will denounce him as the fraud he is and give us all our money back — right after Obama fulfills his promise of lowering taxes for 95% of Americans, Keith Olbermann quits his job to enlist in the Marines, and a flock of flying pigs blots out the sun.

Mann performs his hit single once again.
