Tell Corporations to Stop Funding Climate Change Denial

    1. Petition by

      Greenpeace

Do you believe in climate change? If so, the Heartland Institute counts you among terrorists and serial killers. Recently, the Heartland Institute launched a billboard campaign comparing people who acknowledge climate change to terrorists like Osama bin Laden and Ted Kaczynski, the Unabomber. Heartland was forced to take down the billboard in less than 24 hours due to public outrage, and many of Heartland's corporate funders like State Farm and the USAA have dropped their support in response.

Join Greenpeace and its partners in telling the rest of the Heartland Institute's corporate funders to stop supporting Heartland's attacks on the sound science of climate change.

      If you don't care about climate change, just admit it, but don't deny that it even exists! There's way too much evidence to deny it. And you can't "believe" in global warming. It's not a religion, it's a fact.

      Splitting of atom and Adam is hubris which dictates humanities’ and large mammals extinction. Climate change isn’t at all as benign as it sounds, it’s our extinction in a can. The rate of mass-extinctions of species is far greater than it was before the last ice age ensued. We need to negate the resurgent republican conspiracy theorist assertions that "we don't have to worry about the ice cubes melting, nor, the holes in the clouds"! "...There's a beacon in the sky, meant to catch your eye...", sung by Happy Rhodes. Concentration on solar energy, no non-renewable energy resources and no nuclear, is what's needed. We can't ignore reality, must prevent the point at which ecological destruction becomes irreversible, and humanity and large mammals are extinct, now, in the future; if not you, then who, now, then when, here, where, this, what? reality

      The Heartland Institute is a lying, deceiving, manipulative organization that has harmed the field of atmospheric science and painted me as a murderer for my research. Their "scientific" research is absurd, and their motivations appallingly unethical and subversive.

      You can fool some of the people some of the time, but you can't fool all the people all of the time.

      Corporate funding of climate denial has been remarkably successful in the last few years at warping the debate and preventing effective political action.

      Now -yet again- it has been exposed.

      The corporations, who have funded this, should be held accountable for funding deliberate deception of the public.
