It won’t come as any surprise to learn that there are many other climate scientists at the trough.
and then lists those climate scientists who hold Royal Society Fellowships and how much their Fellowship is worth. I left a comment that (when I last looked) hadn’t yet appeared. I don’t really care, but I do find describing these people as being at the trough rather insulting. On the off chance that Paul Homewood is simply ignorant, rather than nasty and intolerant, I’ll explain something.
The most common Royal Society Fellowship is the University Research Fellowship (URF). It’s aimed at researchers who don’t yet have permanent jobs and is extremely competitive; I think the success rate is around 5%. The Fellowship typically starts off with a 5-year term, renewable to 8, and sometimes 10. The money covers everything; the researcher’s salary, pension and national insurance contributions, travel and computing costs, and university administration costs.
Mosts of the researchers will be Grade 8 or Grade 9, which means their salaries will be somewhere in the range of £40k, not a bad salary, but remember these are thought to be some of the strongest young researchers in the country. If Paul Homewood thinks this is them at the trough, pigging out on public money, he’s got a strange idea of what being at the trough means.
