Who Are the Most Prominent Advocates of Global Warming?
Posted on 20 May 2012 by Rob Honeycutt
Last week, as many know, the Heartland Institute put up a billboard with a picture of Ted Kaczynski (the Unabomber) with the caption, "I still believe in global warming. Do you?" The outrage was instantaneous from people on all sides of the issue and the billboard was taken down within a day.
Heartland, though, has chosen not to apologize for making such an outrageous association. They have instead chosen to double down on their position and maintain a statement on their website where they include the statement...
"The people who still believe in man-made global warming are mostly on the radical fringe of society. This is why the most prominent advocates of global warming aren't scientists. They are murderers, tyrants, and madmen."
The statement defies all logic. It is a clear and fundmental logical fallacy like saying, "Hitler liked cats, so the most prominent cat-lovers are murdering fascists."
The insanity of the Heartland's statements have brought upon them a rash of companies pulling funding and an exodus of the people they had once listed as experts on their website.
Peter Sinclair has just produced a new video for the Yale Forum channel that takes a look at who the most prominent advocates of global warming science really are...
