Another state geological survey hived off


It's a bad time for US state geological surveys.  The states have the same economics as Greece, and are getting rid of these things.  Luckily a lot of universities are actually richer than most states, so it is a simple matter of closing the gs, and pretending it starts up in the university.  Really, are these people going to do stuff that 'benefits the state' if they aren't getting paid?

I can see the same happening to Canada's gs.  They've been starved for years, and hardly do anything.  Give the Ottawa one to Carleton, and the BC to UBC.  Nobody will notice the difference....
