Skip to comments.Global warming deniers mount ad campaign calculated to outrage (and it's working!)

It has finally happened: The Heartland Institute, an anti-science front group that used to focus on downplaying the dangers of smoking on behalf of Phillip Morris but now spends much of its time denying the scientific consensus on climate change, has decided to stop even trying to be credible in order to attract publicity. In the vernacular: It has gone all PETA on us.
"I still believe in global warming. Do you?" reads a caption written in bright red on a billboard recently mounted in Chicago by the Heartland folks, next to a wild-eyed mugshot of Unabomber Ted Kaczynski. The implication: Only mad bombers would accept the proven fact that global average temperatures are rising. Heartland says this is only the first in a series of similar billboards featuring such renowned tyrants and killers as Charles Manson, Fidel Castro, Osama bin Laden and the lesser-known James J. Lee, a radical environmentalist shot by police after taking hostages at the Discovery Channel's Washington headquarters in 2010.
It hardly takes genius to figure out why these billboards are bizarre and absurd, but I'll spell it out anyway for clarity's sake: This would be like mounting a picture of Adolf Hitler with the words, "I was a Christian. Are you?" or a picture of Blackbeard with the slogan, "I believe marriage is between a man and a woman. Do you?" Kaczynski's acceptance that the world is getting warmer no more tarnishes the theory of climate change -- which isn't a "belief," but a well-established scientific theory accepted by virtually every credible expert in the field, despite contradictory theories put forward by non-climatologists and published in the sort of junk-science journal favored by Heartland -- than Hitler's alleged embrace of Darwinism, if true, would tarnish the theory of evolution.

The earth’s atmosphere may be warming. So what? That has happened before, as also has cooling, and without any known or suspected human interference.
The other problem for climatologists of the global warming persuasion is that fact in Western science is established through peer review in publishing methods and results. Too bad they had fanatics who manipulated the normal review process of climate scientists through dishonestly controlling publication results in the area of climate change so the “results” are not really not established science. Watermelons, so in love with Marxist authoritarian propaganda, screwed the pooch.
LEAVE GLOBAL WARMING ALONE!!!
I think this entire movement is the new home for Marxists. If everything is “for the good of our environment” people can be told where to live, what type of home to live in, what type of car to drive, what type of job to have, what type of food to eat...etc!
Gore is a freaking hypocrite! If I had anything to do with it, this POS would be rotting in a Federal Prison for the rest of his life!
“Environmentalists: Prepare to be shaken up. It turns out that hydraulic fracturing, a.k.a. fracking, a.k.a. the latest fossil fuel industry outrage to be perpetrated on planet Earth, isn’t just a menace because it may be contaminating groundwater. It also can cause earthquakes.”
Why is all Liberal guys look like neutered queers?

Good grief, are these Statists getting desperate or what?
Caption to your picture: Algore thought balloon: “Damn! It is REALLY hard to keep all this CO2 and CH4 inside me! No exhaling. no farting, no poo-poo.
This party better end soon, or else I will leave my Carbon Footprint in my shorts!
Now that WOULD be an Inconvenient Truth!”
You know you are over the target when you are taking flak!
I love it!!!!! ROTFLMAO!!!! Bring it beotches!!!
I think the answer is rather obvious...
“That global warming kool-aide is gooood stuff”.
Thanks for explaining that. I wondered why Edward Teach, aka Blackbeard, would have been a notorious advocate of the institution of marriage.

You are what you eat...
What an idiot. Where has he been? That temperatures have been rising is fact. Not a single informed person or actual scientist has ever denied that.
True, mediocre politicians, hairdressers, actors and unethical and immoral technicians have made absolute absurd claims. No respectable widely honored weather or climate scientist has claimed that earth temperatures must always average the same value.
The only planet with constant temperature is a dead planet.
We need more billboards to expose the fruitcakes.
