Heartland Institute Jumps the Shark
The Right discovers an all new level of nutso creepiness: a new billboard campaign paid for by the Heartland Institute compares climate scientists to terrorists and mass murderers.
No, I’m not making this up.
They think this is an effective way to address the issue of global warming with the American public. I deeply hope that they are wrong.
In Heartland’s own words:
“Why did Heartland choose to feature these people on its billboards? Because what these murderers and madmen have said differs very little from what spokespersons for the United Nations, journalists for the “mainstream” media, and liberal politicians say about global warming. The point is that believing in global warming is not “mainstream,” smart, or sophisticated. In fact, it is just the opposite of those things. Still believing in man-made global warming – after all the scientific discoveries and revelations that point against this theory – is more than a little nutty. In fact, some really crazy people use it to justify immoral and frightening behavior.”
