In addition, Shukla's long-time associate, James Kinter, participated in the same double dip, though on a less grandiose scale. Kinter, also a Professor at George Mason, doubled his 2014 university salary of $180,038 with $171,320 from IGES, for a total 2014 income of $351,358.

Edwin Schneider was a Research Scientist at the "Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Interactions, University of Maryland, Dept. of Meteorology" from 1984-1993, James Kinter was Assistant Professor, Department of Meteorology, University of Maryland from 1984-87, subsequently becoming Research Scientist with "COLA, Univ. MD, College Park, MD" from 1987-1993.

In 1992, Shukla, Kinter and Schneider, while still presumably employees of the University of Maryland, appear to have submitted a proposal to NSF for funding via a private Maryland non-profit corporation, then recently incorporated by Shukla (the Institute for Global Environment and Security, Inc.), as, on January 6, 1993, NSF awarded three grants to IGES totalling $1.7 million, with Shukla, Kinter and Schneider all acting as PIs or co-PIs.

Kinter, Schneider, Straus and Dirmeyer all moved from the University of Maryland in 1993 to join the new enterprise.
...
In 2002 (eight years after Shukla), Kinter, Schneider and Straus were all appointed to the staff of the Atmospheric, Oceanic and Earth Sciences department, George Mason University in 2002, coinciding with expansion of their climate program.
...
All three continued their employment with IGES (COLA), where Kinter became Director in 2004.
...
A year later (May 3, 2014), the University announced that Kinter and associates had been awarded $10.5 million from the NSF-NOAA-NASA group for continuation of the COLA work, now titled "Predictability and Prediction of Climate from Days to Decades.":
Kinter and his team were awarded $4.5 million by the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, $2.5 million by NASA Goddard Space Flight Center, and $3.5 million by the National Science Foundation to work on a five-year project called "Predictability and Prediction of Climate from Days to Decades."
Kinter leads the Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies based at George Mason University.

Verardo's wife, Stacey Verardo, is a colleague of Shukla, Kinter, Klinger and the others in the AOES department at George Mason, while Verardo himself is a member of the Adjunct Faculty at George Mason. (Update: David Verardo has commented below that his "wife is a geologist who has worked in the department long before climate dynamics was a part of the department" and "has no professional relationship with the climate dynamics group beyond serving in the same department and working on instructional issues that arise at the university" and that he himself "do not handle proposals from GMU because of obvious conflicts of interest but even more practical, the awards to climate dynamic research are not in my NSF program.")
...
Five other George Mason employees were RICO20 signatories, four of whom are long-time Shukla associates: Dirmeyer, Straus, Paul Schopf and Barry Klinger. (It's interesting that James Kinter didn't sign it.) The other George Mason RICO 20 signatory, Edward Maibach, is in some sort of climate communications and, together with Heidi Cullen, holds a $2,998,178 grant from NSF.
...
IGES' webpage says that its corporate objective was to share "the fruits" of its research "with society as a whole", though, in practice, an equally important objective seems to have been to share the fruits of its research funding with Shukla (and Kinter).

For example, COLA director James Kinter, who is also an associate professor of climate dynamics at Mason, has been helping the Indian government further refine its monsoon forecasting techniques. Kinter and his colleagues have found that since the monsoon system varies from year to year by about 10 percent, making predictions is more difficult.
"What is it in the world's climate system that determines the monsoon rainfall anomaly? How can you make better predictions of those factors that influence the monsoon? That is the cutting-edge of research right now," says Kinter.
Their climate forecasting work has important implications.
"In places where agriculture is dominant, that rainfall turns out to be absolutely critical to the functioning of society and the economy," says Kinter.

You're invited to a full-day seminar with leading climate scientists, Dr. Jim Kinter, Director of the Center for Ocean-Land-Atmosphere Studies (COLA), "Predicting Future Climate for Local and Regional Decision-Making. Dr. Kinter will look at the most recent science of climate prediction at the local and regional scale. Dr. Kinter leads scientists at COLA to provide the world with more accurate climate predictions of where climate changes will occur and what the impacts will be on human societies and ecosystems.
