Heartland Exposed: Inside the Climate Denial Machine

Abby Zimet

Leaked internal documents from the libertarian Heartland Institute show the effort toward an anti-climate-change curriculum for kids is a small part of a well-funded and oiled machine to discredit established climate change science. Documents leaked to DeSmogBlog detail strategy, budgets, media plans to keep out "opposing voices," and funding that could be up 70% from last year, thanks to the Koch Brothers and others of their ilk. 

FRIENDS: Now More Than Ever

Independent journalism has become the last firewall against government and corporate lies. Yet, with frightening regularity, independent media sources are losing funding, closing down or being blacked out by Google and Facebook. Never before has independent media been more endangered. If you believe in Common Dreams, if you believe in people-powered independent media, please support us now and help us fight—with truths—against the lies that would smother our democracy. Please help keep Common Dreams alive and growing. Thank you. -- Craig Brown, Co-founder
