The source of the documents revealing the strategy of the Heartland Institute's campaign to undermine the public's understanding of climate science — including by producing and distributing K-12 curriculum materials propounding climate change denial — revealed himself to be Dr. Peter Gleick, the hydroclimatologist who heads the Pacific Institute for Studies in Development, Environment, and Security.As Heartland Institute has strenuously denied that document, shouldn't a body dedicated to science education alter "revealing the strategy of the Heartland Institute's campaign to undermine the public's understanding of climate science" to at least say "allegedly revealing the strategy" of the Heartland Institute's etc....?
"Gleick obtained and disseminated these documents without the knowledge of anyone here," NCSE's executive director Eugenie C. Scott commented, "and we do not condone his doing so." But, she added, "they show that NCSE was right to broaden its scope to include the teaching of climate science. There really are coordinated attempts to undermine the teaching of climate science, and NCSE is needed to help to thwart them."Yes, Eugenie, there really are "attempts to undermine the teaching of climate science..."
For the sake of our children, start teaching the truth. Do not promulgate voodoo science, tell the children that CO2 is absolutely essential for the survival of our species. And remove lying alarmists from your board.
