A reverse 'climategate' stings Heartland Institute

Posted By on Wed, Feb 15, 2012 at 2:18 PM

Rich stuff. The Heartland Institute is another of those Koch/oil/assorted billionaire-funded "think tanks" that have popped up like mushrooms in a cow patty to push the corporate agenda. It has been stung.

Leaked documents suggest Heartland has been paying for disinformation to counter climate change findings by reputable scientists.

Heartland has gone bonkers. It says it's a victim of theft! Misinformation! Inconvenient unplanned release of facts! It is talking prosecution! Civil lawsuits! Defamation!

While claiming a document on its purported climate change-denial strategy is a fraud, Heartland concedes the general accuracy of others. It does complain they were stolen and might have been "altered."

Heartland has planted some of its propaganda in local publications. You can imagine how hard they'd be working to stifle circulation of similar documents if they'd come from the global warming side of the debate. Not.
