The Heartland Institute, Global Warming and Public Schools

Hosted by

The Heartland Institute, Global Warming and Public SchoolsDocuments leaked last week reveal efforts to cast doubt on climate change with a new curriculum for public schools.  Some call it similar to challenging Evolution by pushing Creationism. The Heartland Institute, a libertarian nonprofit group in Chicago, says at least one document supposedly "leaked" last week is a complete fake. But Heartland concedes that others accurately reveal the names of its funders. Is it really about science or public policy?
