Sheesh. Try to be a nice guy …
Say whatever you want about Heartland, just make sure it’s fact-based. Charles pointed out our funding break-down from Sourcewatch. You don’t see me flaming him, do you? (Though the “who funds you” game is tiresome. Break down Exxon’s support of Heartland and it’s peanuts for a think tank with a $6 million budget — and nothing compared to what the warming side gets.)
And, as Charles helpfully points out, Exxon stopped sending money our way in 2006. Our first climate conference was 2008. Isn’t that interesting? Doesn’t it suggest that Heartland takes its positions on principle? And, perhaps, Giaever did, as well?
No. I suppose it’s just easier to assign on whatever motivation you can imagine (but cannot know), say you’ll prove it, do nothing of the kind, and then jump on me when I point out the obvious.
I’m having some fun here. Might not stick around much longer, however. Got more important things to do … which many of you will imagine is evil. So be it. I just think you guys are wrong.
