The Beacon Herald on Stratford:
Feds paid $10M for climate change studies that were never written

Canada’s federal government paid $10.5 million through a program to climate change researchers for studies that were never completed, along with other work that was barely read, Blacklock’s Reporter reports.

“The program faces many challenges,” wrote auditors with the Department of Fisheries.

“In 2017 and 2018 seven projects were funded for which researchers did not provide reports. Hence, their status is unknown,” said an Evaluation Of The Aquatic Climate Change Adaptation Services Program. “Under the current funding requirements there are no consequences if funded researchers do not submit reports, or reports are delayed.”

According to Blacklock’s, since 2017, the program, which is “the only federal program that advances research in the areas of aquatic climate change science,” cost $10.5 million, along with an extra $3.5 million in ongoing yearly spending.

The program has eight staff members, but “a federal website archiving the studies drew as few as fifty visits a month and was ‘hard to find and not easily navigable for users.’”

It's probably better they don't do it at all than have them phony up data and
conclusions.

I think these government employed lifers prefer to stay under the radar.
