Footnote [2]:
As can be seen in this chapter, in the past decade or so, we conducted a series of GLHs (large or mini scale) more than 15 times. However, when we submitted in 1996 a grant application for our Globally Collaborative Environmental Peace Gaming project to the U.S. National Science Foundation/Partnerships in Advanced Computational Infrastructure program, one of peer group members declined it saying that he was skeptical with GLH.

This was another example how difficult to make "mind change" even among prominent scientists working at a prestigious U.S. governmental agency.
