Believers In Climate Change = Murderers and Madmen, Unabomber = Al Gore, and Other Heartland Truths

Abby Zimet

WTF? With a conference coming up in Chicago, the Koch-funded, climate-change-denying Heartland Institute has launched a billboard campaign so over-the-top crazy it sounds like a Monty Python skit. To wit: what Charles Manson and Ted Kaczynski - and coming soon, Osama bin Laden - have said on global warming "differs very little from what spokespersons for the United Nations, journalists for the 'mainstream' media, and liberal politicians say";  "scientific, political, and public support for the theory of man-made global warming is collapsing"; "the people who still believe in man-made global warming are mostly on the radical fringe of society (which) is why the most prominent advocates of global warming aren’t scientists. They are murderers, tyrants, and madmen." Whoah. Desperate much?

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
