DJ i thought you were more sensible than to buy into the global warming nonsense...

Nice work by Gleick, way to ruin a career! Its even funnier that he was pinpointed by sceptic website days before he confessed from the alterations made to the fake document and the writing style which matched Gleick's.

Yes


I notice too that the new chair Dr. Linda Gundersen appears twice on that page, clearly they moved so fast in removing Gleik's name they didn't edit the page properly, they just added her as chair.


Ethics indeed.

I also like Willis' follow up open letter to her, it IS past time for concrete action, no more airy fairy, criminal charges where they are due.

Glieck has been stripped of his ethics position, may lose his position in the Institute he founded, and may face charges for identity theft and wire fraud. The acts of a desperate charlatan who is seeing the basis of his grant funding slipping away.


On February 20, Peter Gleick confessed to stealing documents from The Heartland Institute with the intent of exposing its funding sources and damaging its reputation. He also disseminated a fake “climate strategy memo” that he and other environmental activists on the left claim describes Heartland’s “secret strategy” to mislead the public about the true nature of climate change.

The "consensus" slips away a little more every day!

It's been months now and Heartland has not pressed charges? Why do you suppose that is? Perhaps this has something to do with it:


The scientist who exposed the inner workings of the ultra-conservative Heartland Institute, triggering the defection of key donors, has been reinstated after an investigation.

Peter Gleick, who impersonated a Heartland board member to obtain and make public confidential budget and strategy documents, was restored to his position as president of the Pacific Institute, the organisation announced on its website.

The Pacific Institute indicated in the statement that it had found no evidence for Heartland's charges that Gleick had forged one of several documents he released last February.

[Edit for concision. --DJW001]

There was no immediate response from Heartland. But the organisation has taken a big hit since Gleick's revelations – although much of the damage was done by its own combattive response to the sting.

The documents released by Gleick exposed Heartland's donors' list – which it had kept private – as well as a plan to spread misinformation about climate change in schools. The ultra-conservative organisation immediately moved to capitalise on the media exposure, setting up a website which it called "Fakegate" and using Gleick's image to sell $22.49 coffee mugs.

But when Heartland promoted the climate conference by taking out a billboard comparing believers in climate change to psychopaths like the Unabomber Ted Kaczynski, a run in donors, which had been relatively modest immediately after Gleick's exposé, spiked dramatically. Two board members resigned, almost all of those based in its Washington DC office quit, and a number of Heartland allies publicly chided the organisation and dropped out of last month's conference.

In other words, Heartland doesn't dare take the issue to court, it would shed too much light on their true purpose.

"The scientist who exposed the inner workings of the ultra-conservative Heartland Institute, triggering the defection of key donors" I read some where that their donations have increased since the Gleick ordeal ... I thought the forged document was the one that had the damming evidence ? Oh and who investigated themselves ? Do you think that maybe there was a conflict of interest in the investigation ? So much for ethics as well ..fox meet the chickens comes to mind ....peace

So why hasn't Heartland sued? Don't they want to expose the allegedly false documents for what they are? Or would they rather just skulk back into the darkness?
