Holy OLR emissions!
In my article about the Peter Gleick affair coming out tonight or early tomorrow morning in the next issue of , I note that “the Heartland Institute has always extended invitations to the leading ‘mainstream’ figures to speak or debate at the [annual Heartland climate change] conference, including Al Gore, NASA’s James Hansen, and senior officials from the U.N.’s Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change. (Heartland typically receives no response from such figures.)”
It turns out that one of the “mainstream” figures that Heartland has invited to debate is . . . Peter Gleick! Quite recently in fact. Which only adds to the mountain of circumstance explaining why Gleick gave into his jonesing for a fix of Heartland’s proprietary information in late January. Gleick has been sharing pixels with Heartland’s James Taylor on Forbes.com, where they have traded fusillades over climate issue. It would seem it drove Gleick insane.
Go read the rest, especially the parts concerning transparency. $26 mill of oil money to save the planet was hidden in the mist!
