But the project, which is run by an independent body — NEON, Inc. — didn't clear its final hurdle until 28 July, when the National Science Foundation (NSF) awarded it $434 million over the next decade, with $12.5 million to be spent in the current fiscal year.

30 year study of the changes in the environment? So that they can safely say that, yes, homo sapiens is having an affect on the environment? To what end? Oh, I forgot. To explain why centralized government must make rules to restrain homo sapiens. AGW didn't work, maybe this plan will.
