Gleick Admits to Acquiring Heartland Institute Docs under False Name

Hosted by

Yesterday on To the Point, we heard about internal documents revealing that a nonprofit group was pushing a K-12 curriculum that cast doubt on the science of climate change. Heartland Institute claimed the material was stolen and threatened legal action. In today's Huffington Post, Peter Gleick, president and co-founder of the Pacific Institute in Oakland, California, admits he used someone else's name to get the documents and calls it "a serious lapse of my own and professional judgment and ethics." Darren Samuelsohn is following the story for Politico.
