Chinese science academy slaps down climate-denying Heartland Institute

Well, that was embarrassing.

The Heartland Institute the right-wing group best known for its Unabomber billboard recently boasted on a blog about successfully spreading its message of climate denial to the Chinese:

The trend toward skepticism and away from alarmism is now unmistakable

Publication of a Chinese translation of Climate Change Reconsidered by the Chinese Academy of Sciences indicates the countrys leaders believe their [failure to sign a global climate treaty] is justified by science and not just economics.

But really all that happened was that one of Heartlands climate-denial reports, Climate Change Reconsidered, was translated into Chinese [PDF].

And translation does not mean endorsement. Even the translators preface says the work was undertaken to understand different opinions and positions in debates on climate change and does not reflect that [those involved in the translation] agree with the views in the report.

When the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) got wind of Heartlands blog post, it was not pleased. It put out a statement harshly condemning the post:

The claim of the Heartland Institute about CAS endorsement of its report is completely false.

Since there is absolutely no ground for the so called CAS endorsement of the report, and the actions by the Heartland Institute went way beyond acceptable academic integrity, we have requested by email to the president of the Heartland Institute that the false news on its website to be removed. We also requested that the Institute issue a public apology to CAS for the misleading statement on the CAS endorsement.

Heartland then offered up a weak non-apology apology and the offending blog post was deleted. Oops.

Lets see .. Volcanoes give off enough greenhouse gasses in one day to exceed a decades worth of man made savings. The ice age comes every 20,000 years , no matter what . And Europe already abandoned the big solar push that don't work. Government is here to con you out of cash. Wreck the currency and make everyone poorer. Furthermore ., The greenhouse gas money is being used to industrialize Africa. At Americas expense. Creating more greenhouse gases. and pollution for industry. Some people are just too stupid to know who is conning who. Smart Individuals always do better then any government entity. Stupid individuals don't. And support the legitimate purpose of the corrupt governments whos purpose is to wreck the currency, and make everyone poorer for handouts for votes.

Abraham Lincoln created a blockade of a soveigrn nation to Override the Constitution . illegally. And he was shot. And rightly so. There was no civil war. The south didn't want to take over the North. DOH! And he forbade blacks from being postal workers as soon as he became president.

You know nothing , public educated tool.
