Hot Air on Global Warming On Broadway March 2-4
Leave it to Grist to shine the spot light on this Anti-Global Warming "Forum":
It's a meeting, starting Sunday, of hundreds of "scientists" and propagandists, convening to denounce the proposition that global warming is real.
It's like a gathering of the Flat Earth Society. Or, since this meeting literally is taking place on Broadway... under the aegis of the Heartland Institute, a corporate-funded outfit which, among other things, funnels "free-enterprise" propaganda to malleable state lawmakers.
Many of the organizing sponsors and speakers have financial history with big companies such as ExxonMobil. Even some of the "international" co-sponsors (such as the Alternate Solutions Institute of Pakistan) receive money from foundations that have received money from ExxonMobil.
So get ready for a celebration of hot air -- and see if they denounce Galileo while they are at it.
