This project is only costing U.S. taxpayers $300K. Note Mann will also be working on “effective communication of scientific information in the face of potential biases.” Would those biases be his perchance?
“Fuentes, working with Michael Mann, distinguished professor of meteorology, Penn State, will use regional climate change scenarios to develop management strategies that ensure the resilience of water supplies. The researchers will assess approaches to ensuring effective communication of scientific information to stakeholders in the face of potential biases in cognition and perception. They will also try to determine how regional climate change and variability, and sea level rise will affect the future water supply and its management.”
