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?
