$88,000 Surface Stations Project (Anthony Watts of WUWT)
Payments to ItWorks/IntelliWeather to create web site featuring data from NOAA’s new network of surface stations. First payment of $44,000 in January, second of same amount contingent on fundraising around mid-year.

$75,000 K-12 Climate Education Project
Payments to David Wojick for K-12 Global Warming Lesson Plan modules plus a Website featuring the same. Estimate quarterly payments of $25,000 in June, September, and December.
So called peer review (how much faith can be placed in a review of sombody whose reward is paid by an organisation with strong anti science beliefs?)
Willie Soon contributor - paid by review - assume $1500/year
Craig Loehle contributor - paid by review - assume $1500/year
David Watkins contributor - paid by review - assume $1500/year

The story here is not so much the funding (which is not great) nor the amounts. It shows, in my opinion, the two faced opinions of Watts and followers. Its good to hack CRU, it's not illegal but heartland - that's totally differnt!
