Joining the ranks of the Gleicks, Turneys, Shuklas of this world. Still just the tip of the proverbial iceberg, another one bites the dust. Queenslander, Dr Daniel Alongi:
“The Science” has become “the loophole” where nearly any friend of big gov can get a hand in the treasury-bag.
There are reasons you aren’t allowed to pal review your tax return.
[Courier Mail] Alongi, who was well regarded in the science industry, allegedly pretended he was paying for “radioisotopes” imported from the US and to have samples analysed in US laboratories for his Great Barrier Reef research.
He told his boss he could “get a discount” on isotopes because he was a US citizen, and he claimed he was measuring carbon levels in “sediment core samples” taken from the Reef.
He has admitted to police that he made false invoices, credit card statements and created fake email trails to claim expenses over seven years, court documents state …
More info from The Townsville Bulletin Sept 15th.
He was charged with obtaining a financial advantage from a Commonwealth entity, namely AIMS, by deception.
The charge carries a maximum sentence of 10 years imprisonment.
I guess that the latest, Alongi, forgot to check the Al Gore playbook!
Update, it gets worse, a lot worse: Fake fixed carbon markets feed five billion to financial sharks in EU fraud
How Green is that Banker?
Remember how Deutche Bank was so concerned about the environment they erected a 70 foot high clock of doom tower to count CO2 and put together 50 page scientific reports on climate change? Perhaps some employees were trying a bit too hard to save the world? Eight Deutsche Bank employees have been indicted for by a carbon fraud investigation.
Also, Frankfurt prosecutors in August indicted seven current and one former employee of Deutsche Bank in connection with its carbon fraud investigations.
The member for Golden Sacks, Chairman Mal to answer in 5 . 4 . 3 . 2 , oh, you know he wont, he probably wants a piece of the action.
