Climate hoax gravy train rolls on: Hayhoe shares in another $750k NSF project about CO2's effect on roads and bridges?

Our new NSF project, integrating climate science w/ engineering to develop sustainable transportation infrastructure:
Award#1231326 - RCN-SEES: Engineering Research Collaboratory for Sustainable Infrastructure in a Changing Climate
Awarded Amount to Date: $749779
Investigator(s): Jennifer Jacobs jennifer.jacobs@unh.edu (Principal Investigator)
Jack Kartez (Co-Principal Investigator)
Jo Daniel (Co-Principal Investigator)
Katharine Hayhoe (Co-Principal Investigator)
This Research Coordination Network under NSF's Science, Engineering and Education for Sustainability (SEES) initiative will create a multi-institution collaboratory to support the integration of climate science and engineering research for sustainable transportation infrastructure (Infrastructure and Climate Network ? ICNet). The nation?s physical infrastructure is at increasing and critical risk from climate-driven stressors due to both ambient and periodic extremes in precipitation, temperature, and wind. Climate nonstationarity poses challenges that have been broadly recognized by the road and bridge engineering community. However, relatively few infrastructure researchers incorporate climate change into their work due to significant knowledge and data barriers.



CO2 is truly magical. It can turn a Gaian into a structural engineer. Is there nothing it cannot do.

Basic engineering design principles require design parameters to widely exceed meteorological extremes.

No weather events in the last century or this one, with the exception of tornadic episodes, have exceeded those design specifications.

This is $3/4 of a million gushing down the sewer. Such sewage is within the Obama administration's design specs!!!

"nonstationarity" - does that word even exist?

How can I apply for funding to study the effect of CO2 on the beaches of Caribean islands?
