9 Documents the Climate Deniers Don’t Want You to Read

Posted on February 16, 2012


DeSmogBlog has recently released a number of documents showing the strategic promotion of climate disinformation by the ultra-right-wing Heartland Institute.  There is evidence that the Institute is wrongfully using its tax-free status for political lobbying, meaning that it may be in violation of the law as well as in violation of all reasonable standards of ethical behaviour for its climate denial project.

The following are 9 leaked documents that the anti-climate lobbyists over at the Heartland Institute really don’t want you to read.  Read them anyway.
